Revealing mistake: When Eric Matthews is smashing his foot, he hits it the first time and it shows a close up. If you watch the small amount of blood when he hits it again they have used the same shot.

Continuity mistake: Just before Amanda shoots Lynn her gun switches from her right hand to her left.

Continuity mistake: The drill that Lynn uses on Jigsaw's skull has a white piece of tape on the end of the drill bit a short distance from the end, presumably to mark the thickness of his skull so she knows where to stop. In one shot (during the drilling scene) the piece of tape moves a good two inches farther up on the drill bit, but it's back down in the very next shot.

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: The tear in Jeff's face (after he gets stuck to the refrigeration machine) continually changes throughout the movie. It goes from oozing and bloody, to clean and almost normal looking several different times. There's no blood on his bathrobe, so he didn't wipe it off that way. That's a big enough tear to bleed a decent amount, so we'd see the blood if he wiped it off.

Continuity mistake: After the scene with the pig gut pit, Jeff and the judge leave the room and the judge's clothes are suddenly not wet and almost clean.

Continuity mistake: Right before Lynn says "I don't know what you know, but my marriage has survived more suffering that you could possibly imagine" her hair is all pulled back behind her ear. As she's saying that line you can now see that a noticeable amount is hanging on the side of her face and across her ear.

xx:xx:xx

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: Lynn is in the corner of the room when Amanda is threatening her with the gun. The shot moves to behind Amanda when she raises her hand to her head and now all of a sudden Lynn is a good 4 or 5 feet to her right. (instant cut, not enough time to move).

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: The placement of the flashlight (or foot) moves between shots of Detective Matthews contemplating sawing through his leg. In one shot the flashlight is illuminating the ball of his foot, in the next it's pointed past his foot, then in the next shot it's shining right on his heel. Matthews isn't moving either, he sitting right there with the saw on his leg, crying and contemplating all the pain that he's about to inflict on himself.

xx:xx:xx

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: Jeff sees the 3rd tape player (in the room where he finds the judge) and there's a shot of the player being held up by string. The player is hanging very level and the string is perfectly tied around the middle of it. Jeff climbs the stairs to get the player and now you can see that the player is hanging crooked and the string (where it's tied) is slanted towards the top of the player. (He didn't shake it lose or anything when he climbed the steps, the player is hanging from the ceiling).

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: The glowing "X" on the bathroom wall in the first Saw movie was very symmetrical, and the whole thing was filled in very well. During the Saw III bathroom flashback scene, when Jigsaw paints the "X" it's completely different that the one that shows up in Saw. It's not symmetrical at all, and the paint doesn't go on very thick at all. You can easily still see the wall behind the paint, but in Saw, the lines of the "X" are very full with no gaps.

Continuity mistake: The blood spot on Lynn's left sleeve (from when Jigsaw has a seizure) constantly changes size and shape throughout the whole movie.

xx:xx:xx

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: When Jeff leans down to Lynn you can see she she has some blood on her chin and neck. The shot goes to Jigsaw, then back to Lynn and Jeff. Now her neck and chin have no blood. Shot moves to Jigsaw again, then back to Jeff and Lynn. Now she has blood on her neck and chin *and* blood from the corner of her mouth.

Add time

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: Look at Jigsaw's oxygen mask first time Lynn tells him "Look at my flashlight". The mask is next to his neck, lying flat on his shoulder. The shot cuts to Lynn for a second, then back to Jigsaw, now the mask is standing vertical and almost touching his cheek.

xx:xx:xx

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: When Lynn says "Please, please let me go" there are tears in both eyes and tear marks on her cheeks. 2 shots later (maybe 7 seconds) you see a close-up of her face and there are no tears or tear marks. (Jigsaw was holding her hand, so she couldn't have wiped them away, plus you can see Lynn the whole time (in the background) and she never wipes them off).

xx:xx:xx

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: When Lynn is operating on John's head, she the skin from the skull and then clips off some veins. Right when she asks Amanda to fill the syringe with alcohol to clean John's head, Lynn turns back to wipe up some of the blood, but there are no clips in place. A shot after that, we see her taking the syringe from Amanda's head and squirting the alcohol on John's head and the clips are there.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Lynn places down the drill there are 4 pieces of a broken mirror on the table in front of her. The 2 middle ones are standing straight up, but the outer ones are at various angles of slant. The next shot (a few seconds later) all 4 pieces are standing straight up and arranged very nicely.

xx:xx:xx

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: After Lynn looks for pills she runs back over and tells Amanda "Back off, back off", then takes off Jigsaw's oxygen mask and puts her hand on his face to keep his head to the side and you can see two drops of blood on her hand. The shot cuts to a closeup of Jigsaw and now there is no blood on her hand.

xx:xx:xx

Nick Bylsma

Revealing mistake: During the "Rack" trap, look closely whenever there's a close-up of any of Timothy's hands or feet. It takes careful observation, but you can tell that many close-up shots have been horizontally flipped during editing. This was because the production only spent money on one prosthetic/prop hand and one prosthetic/prop foot for the twisting/bone-breaking effects, and in order to make it look like all four of his limbs were breaking, shots would be horizontally flipped. Thus the same prop/prosthetic could serve as both the left and right hand or foot. What gives it away is the blood pattern on the foot, which is perfectly mirrored between his two feet.

Add time

Continuity mistake: After Lynn gets shot her position against the wall changes between the far away and close-up shots. (look at the poster she's leaning against for a reference point, in the far away shot her head is between the 2 legs on the left, but in the close-up her head is on the very left leg and you can easily see the right leg.).

Add time

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: During Jigsaw's seizure there is a shot of Lynn when she's yelling at Amanda for help. In this shot she has several strands of hair that are across her face, but in the very next shot they are gone. She couldn't have brushed them away because her hands were on Jigsaw the whole time.

Continuity mistake: The blood spots on Jigsaw's hospital bed disappear during shots of him telling Amanda to let Lynn go, and they reappear in later scenes.

Continuity mistake: The blood spots and streaks on the chained man's body are different in the close up shots of the chains than they are during other shots.

Continuity mistake: When Jigsaw says "You're already dead on the inside", the oxygen mask is resting on his chest. In the next shot he is holding the mask.

xx:xx:xx

Mortug

Revealing mistake: Notice that throughout the movie the primers (little 'buttons' on the tips of the shotgun shells) on Lynn's neck trap have all been expended. In a sense, none of the shells have the capacity to be fired.

Add time

Jason Johnson

Continuity mistake: Jeff lays his bloodied hand right in the center of Jigsaw's chest (pointing towards Jigsaw's chin) when he says "I forgive you", but pretty much only his fingertips touch Jigsaw. Right before Jeff slices Jigsaw's neck you can see the handprint, but it's MUCH more defined than it should be AND the fingers are pointing towards the right instead of straight up.

xx:xx:xx

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: When Jeff is inside the box he kicks out 2 boards, when the shot cuts to the outside there's only one board missing.

xx:xx:xx

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: When Jeff is screaming at the guy in "The Rack" there are a few spinning shots of "The Rack". You can see that the guy's arms aren't broken, even though you've seen them both be twisted until they snapped. (Slo-mo helps but is NOT required).

Continuity mistake: The key is bubbling when it first drops in the acid, and continues bubbling throughout most of the scene. As Jigsaw's message is winding down, the bubbling dies down and stops. But it's bubbling full force again when the detective goes to put her hand in the jar.

xx:xx:xx

Nick Bylsma
Saw III mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When Lynn is inspecting the "reverse bear trap", the trap Amanda was placed in for the first movie, you can see a small orange light reflecting off a few surfaces, like Lynn's arm and the nearby table. This is the brightness level auto-adjustment light that is present on many handheld cameras, which the cameraman apparently forgot to cover or turn off.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Matthews is smashing his foot with the toilet bowl lid, he probably hits his foot a good six or seven times, and one of the times he also glances against the flashlight and it rolls a bit to the side. The next time you see the flashlight it's pointed right back at his foot like it was in the previous shots. (He was still pounding away on his foot, so he didn't stop and realign it or anything.)

xx:xx:xx

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: In the close-up when Amanda goes to suffocate Adam with the plastic, the plastic only goes up to his forehead, yet when the scene cuts back (instant cut) the plastic is completely surrounding his entire face and head.

Saw III mistake picture

Continuity mistake: The acid is completely red after the woman puts in her hand. The acid jar is then completely clear throughout the rest of the scene.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Amanda says "I'm standing right here" her hair is hanging down, but brushed back from her right eye, in the previous and subsequent shots her hair is hanging down and covering her right eye. She was holding the gun in her right hand the whole time and all the cuts were instant, there was no time to move her hair.

Deliberate mistake: In Saw III we learn that Amanda was the person who abducted Adam from his apartment. However, if you watch his abduction in the first Saw film, you'll see that the person attacking him has the hands of a middle aged man.

Continuity mistake: The green tube that's connected to Jigsaw is gone when he says "Suffering? You haven't seen anything yet", but it was there in the previous scene and it's back the next time you see him.

Continuity mistake: Lynn explains the procedure she's going to do to Jigsaw, then goes to fill the syringe. Look at the syringe when she sticks it in the bottle, the plunger part is pushed all the way to the bottom. The shot cuts to a different view and the plunger is a good inch or 2 pulled back already (she hadn't started to draw it out yet, you can see 1 or 2 inches of air). The shot cuts again, and now the plunger is at the top of the syringe again, then she starts drawing it out).

Continuity mistake: Amanda's holding the gun in her right hand in every scene when she's arguing with Jigsaw, except when she's saying "It's all BS," then the gun is in her left hand. It's back in her right hand then very next scene (all instant cuts, no time to switch hands).

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: They do show burns throughout the rest of the scene.

Continuity mistake: Amanda's hair is in a lose ponytail when she sees Jigsaw holding Lynn's hand. A large part of her hair is hanging down the right side of her face and in her eye. She storms out of the room and now all of a sudden her hair is all pulled back in a tight ponytail and no hair is hanging down or behind her ear, it's all back in the ponytail (instant cut, no time for her to re-do her hair).

Continuity mistake: When the tape player says "The key is among your son's possessions" Jeff is standing in front of the opening between the bars leading down to the ladder, and he takes a few steps towards the incinerator (his left). The screen cuts back to Jeff and you can see in the lower left-hand corner of the screen that Jeff is still standing in front of that opening between the bars.

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: There is a closeup shot of Matthew's foot right before he starts to smash it with the broken piece of the toilet bowl lid. He's placing the flashlight on the floor next to his foot and you can see that the sock is back on his foot, even though he took it off previously (right before he first attempted to saw through his leg).

Saw III mistake picture

Continuity mistake: There is a far-away shot when the first pig comes out. You can see Jeff standing on the platform holding his left hand to his face, there's an instant cut to a close-up of Jeff, but now his right hand is held up to his face.

xx:xx:xx

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: In the close-up shot of Lynn removing the piece of Jigsaw's skull you can see that she's holding the instrument in her left hand (look at the position of her fingers), but in the farther away shots she has it in her right hand. (further evidenced by later in the scene where you see a close-up and she's still holding the instrument in the left hand and a knife is in her right).

xx:xx:xx

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: When Jeff is monologuing about how "Everyday for 3 years I wanted to kill him" there is a tear that appears in his right eye and starts to run down his cheek. The shot cuts away for a second, then back to Jeff and there is no tear, not even a wet tear trail.

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: There's a shot of the right foot when "The Rack" starts twisting it. There is a blood trail that runs off between his first 2 toes, and a lesser one that runs off between his 2nd and 3rd toes. The screen cuts to a close-up of the foot and there's only the blood trail that runs off between the first 2 toes.

Nick Bylsma

Plot hole: When John is painting the doll's face he looks down at a photo printout of Amanda, you will notice the bruising/scratches on the side of her face in the picture. Please take note of her hair, shirt and overall demeanor. Now think back to the first Saw when Danny Glover had Amanda in the interview room. The picture that John Kramer is looking at is a picture taken of her in "that exact" interview, this is strange however considering that the interview took place after she escaped the jaw splinter, so how does John have a picture of her from the future?

xx:xx:xx

AmberMac420

Continuity mistake: The guy that is in chains stands up, looks around and takes in what he sees. There's a shot of him from the front and his hands are semi-clenched in FRONT of him, around waist level. The shot cuts to behind him and his hands are a good 4 or 5 inches OUTSIDE of his hips.

xx:xx:xx

Nick Bylsma

Other mistake: After Jeff gets the key from the Rack trap room, the shotgun fires and hits the judge. He is standing with the shotgun to his right, yet he is hit on the left side of his face. There is also an inconsistency with the timing. The gun fires, then the actor turns to reveal the wound on the left side of his face. It's easier (but in no way required) to see the glaring mistake with slow motion.

Continuity mistake: When Kerry is looking in the closet, she is right by the door. Camera changes has she has jumped about two feet back instantly.

A Demon

Revealing mistake: During the "pig vat" sequence, as the pigs are being dropped into the grinder, in some of the shots from underneath the blades, you can see that the pigs are not falling directly into the blades, but rather, onto a sheet of glass right on top of them. (Look for the pigs to reflect in this glass.)

Saw III mistake picture

Continuity mistake: The blood streaks on the chained man's chest continually changes from almost covering his chest, to less noticeable. They probably tried to give the appearance of his continual bleeding, but the shots didn't make it into the movie in sequence.

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: The knot and string position on the tape player is different during the close up of it on "The Rack" guy's chest than it is during the far away shots.

Nick Bylsma

Revealing mistake: Look at Matthews' toes as soon as he's done breaking his ankle, it's obvious that it's a fake foot. If you shine a flashlight through your toes, or fingers, it will shine most brightly through the edges of them because in the middle there's a bone to block the passage of light. The light shines right through Matthews' toes, and it's a solid color, obvious that there's nothing inside to block the passage of light. While he did break several bones in his foot to escape, it is unlikely that he took time to break his toes as there is no reason to, the shackle will slide off unbroken toes as well as broken ones. Also, even if he did break his toes, the broken pieces would still be in his foot and still block the light. It's a fake foot.

Revealing mistake: When Jigsaw is coughing up blood, the tube pumping the blood is visible. Look near his thigh. You can even see some red liquid oozing up. (Only visible in widescreen.)

Continuity mistake: When Jeff reaches up and plays with his daughter's hair some of her hair falls over/in front of her stuffed animal. The next shot of her (instant cuts) and her hair is back behind the animal.

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: Not only does the key in the acid stop bubbling, then start up again as Kerry's reaching into the jar (as mentioned in a previous mistake), but in almost every shot the key switches from bubbles to no bubbles. It also moves position from the back of the jar to the front of the jar.

Nick Bylsma

Revealing mistake: After Tony rips his right hand from the chain you can see that the wound doesn't go all the way down to between his fingers, it stop about 1/2 an inch from the webbing of the fingers. The only way to get the chain out oh his hand was to completely rip it out between his fingers, the wound should have gone all the way out. (somewhat difficult to see, but just look carefully [slow-mo helps, but it NOT required to see this mistake]).

xx:xx:xx

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: When Jeff comes in to his daughter's room the blanket that she has around her chin changes position from shot to shot. It goes from right next to her chin, the a few inches below it, all the way down to spread out on her bed. She doesn't change position in any of the shots, so she couldn't have pulled it off herself.

xx:xx:xx

Nick Bylsma
Saw III mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the first shot of Kerry watching the Jigsaw tape you can see 2 folders to her left. She fast forwards the tape a bit, the shot cuts back to her, and one folder is inside of the other. Also, all the pictures spread out in front of her change positions and placement drastically.

Continuity mistake: The clamps on Jigsaw's head change their positions between the time Lynn says "He's stabilized" and "I need you to raise your hand and spread your fingers" The top one is most noticeable, it goes from hanging over his forehead to lying on top of his head.

Continuity mistake: The blood splatters on Lynn's face change throughout the whole brain surgery scene. The splatters go from defined, to smeared, and then back to defined again a couple different times.

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: In one shot, when Kerry is in the 'Angel' trap, her right hand is on the chain. The shot cuts away to an over-her-shoulder view and her hand is off the chain. The shot cuts back to show her and her hand is back on the chain.

xx:xx:xx

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: After the scene of Tony there is a shot of Kerry and Rigg, the detective is in the background inspecting a piece of the chain. The shot moves to the background detective for a second and he looks up at something. The shot instantly cuts back to Kerry and Rigg and the background detective is suddenly looking down at the chain again.

Continuity mistake: The positioning of Amanda's green sheet changes drastically during her cutting scene.

Add time

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: The red cloth (bag?) that's covering the gun changes its position DRASTICALLY between the first time you see it (then he talks to his daughter when she comes in the room) and then the second time you see it. The first time the back half of it is folded back over itself and it's almost tucked under Jeff's leg. The next time you see it it's completely spread out flat. Jeff didn't rearrange it while he talked to it daughter, it just "magically" happened.

xx:xx:xx

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: While Jeff is contemplating burning his son's possessions his hair constantly changes from messed up and down, to pushed up and away from his face. One of the shots you can see Jeff put his hand to his forehead in agony, so this explains that part of the hair change, but the changes happen several times during the same scene.

Continuity mistake: When Jigsaw is in the process of passing out (after surgery) Lynn's hands move off the bed, back on, then off again, then back on (it wasn't just her moving them naturally, they were in the EXACT same positions each time they were back on the bed).

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: When Lynn cuts open Jigsaws head, she clips off some veins with clamps and lets one fall in front of his face. A scene change to the front of his head shows no such clamp lying across his face.

Saw III mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Amanda takes some items out of her box, she lays a red cloth on the bed and then places some items on it. She places a razor blade down on the cloth and there is a large crease underneath the blade. Cut to another shot and the cloth is completely smooth; no crease.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: Matthews is in the bathroom and gets the saw, he shines the light over and sees the severed foot on the other side of the room. He shines the light down to his foot, then he holds the flashlight in his mouth while he yanks his sock off. The next shot (which is a direct cut, you can tell by his sobs) has the flashlight suddenly on the floor and already pointing at his foot while he's stuffing the sock in his mouth to muffle his screams.

xx:xx:xx

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: Watch the light when Matthews is breaking the bone so that he can slide his foot out of the lock (right after he's done smashing it with the lid). The flashlight is suppose to be on the floor next to the foot (it was in the previous shot) but the light source is moving all around as he places his hands on his foot and then breaks it. It's very noticeable as soon as the break happens, the light source moves down and to the left of the screen. The flashlight is back on the ground, next to the foot, in the very next shot.

Continuity mistake: When Amanda gets shot and falls next to the cart you can see that there is no blood on the cart. The next time you see her there are blood splatters all over it.

Continuity mistake: In "The Rack" room you get a shot of the box holding the shotgun and the key. When first viewed from the back the keyfob and the key are directly parallel to the front and back of the box. The scene cuts back to the guy in the rack, then back to the box. Now the key and keyfob have moved and are almost vertical to the sides (the judge hadn't started to move it yet, there's nothing to explain how or why it would have moved).

Continuity mistake: Jeff's body position moves when he's looking down the hall towards the wrecked trike. When the shot is in front of him his right leg is farther forward than his left and he's leaning forwards peering into the darkness, when the shot is behind him he is standing up straight and his feet are parallel.

Continuity mistake: During the scene when Lynn is telling Amanda that Jigsaw needs to have an operation Lynn is talking to Amanda with her body slanted forward and her head and chin up (in a "you're stupid, this is what we need" type of pose), but in all of the over-Lynn's-shoulder shots her head is tilted down to look at Amanda.

Continuity mistake: There is a shot when Tony (chained man) is listening to Jigsaw's message where blood drops out of his mouth and runs down his chin, but in the next close-up of Tony you can see that most of the blood has mysteriously disappeared (he still has blood on his chin, but it looks the same way that it did BEFORE he drooled blood all over the place).

Continuity mistake: When Kerry reaches up the second time to try and get the key you can see the acid burns (a few, but not a whole lot of blood) on her hand. There is a quick cut where her hand is poised over the jar of acid and her hand has suddenly become almost entirely red and bloody.

Nick Bylsma

Continuity mistake: A little bit after you first see Jeff there is a shot of Amanda looking into Jigsaw's room. Lynn is telling Jigsaw to look at her. The pillow is aboutthree-quarters of the way down Jigsaw's head, almost down to his neck. The shot cuts to a closer view of him and now the pillow in a good 8-10 inches higher on his head, up past his ears.

Continuity mistake: After examining Jigsaw, Lynn tells Amanda that he needs to go to a hospital. Amanda grabs Lynn's hair and pulls Lynn towards her to yell at her.

Revealing mistake: Jeff tears a big chunk out of his face, but it never really bleeds out very much. It's pretty obvious that it's not just a layer of skin, you can see that there's a pretty big hunk of skin gone. At one point in the movie it's completely covered in blood, but only inside of the area of the tear. It should, at the very least, ooze quite a lot and drip something down his face, yet the area around the wound is always free from blood.

Continuity mistake: Amanda freaks out and pins Lynn to the wall after Lynn says "He doesn't even know you're there". Amanda's hand is around Lynn's neck, choking her. The screen cuts to Jigsaw very briefly (all he says is, "AMANDA!"), then back to Amanda, now Amanda's hand has moved up to being on Lynn's chin. Not only would moving her hand from Lynn's neck to her chin not serve any purpose, but the screen cuts happened too fast to allow for the hand movement.

Factual error: Troy has several chains attached to his body, of which two are attached to his Achilles tendons. This is the structure of the leg that allows you to stand and move, so as soon as he ripped them out, he would have fallen over and been unable to walk.

Add time

Plot hole: Out of all of the chains Troy had attached to him, one is hooked to his jaw which is near impossible to do as that would probably kill you and ripping it out would too, which is why Amanda would have placed it there. Jigsaw wouldn't have approved of it, and obviously there's no indication that Amanda had a medical profession, so how did she hook that chain to his jaw and even if she did, without killing him?

Revealing mistake: When Kerry is in the Angel trap there is a close up of her about to put her hand in the acid for the first time before it changes to a spinning shot. In the close up, watch very closely and you will see her fingertips enter the acid but she doesn't get burned or scream in pain.

Continuity mistake: The amount of blood on Jigsaw's skull changes drastically from thick dark red to thin almost translucent red. This is before Lyn clamps off the blood vessels and uses the alcohol to clear the area.

Continuity mistake: In the 'Pig Vat' scene, the slide that the pigs slide on into the blades is clear with no pigs stuck on it. The pigs fall in one after the other with none getting stuck on the slide. However when the fourth pig drops onto the slide, you can see the a pig stuck on the slide and hanging over the edge of the slide. The next couple of pigs that fall don't knock another pig in and you cannot see the pig overhanging on the slide.

Other mistake: Near the end of the film when Jigsaw has the tape player, the 'play' button is near the left side. But Jigsaw's finger is on the right side, not even close to the play button. Jigsaw presses on the right side where there isn't even a button, but the tape begins to play anyway although nobody pressed the actual play button.

Continuity mistake: When Jeff flips over the 3rd card he is holding it with his left hand by the left edge of the card, but when the scene (instantly) cuts away to a view of in front of Jeff you can see the he's holding it by the bottom (look at the way the card it bent).

Continuity mistake: In the "pig" room the string around the tape player suddenly disappears in the middle of the tape message. Jeff's right hand never changes position and the string was tied around the middle of the player, he would have had to move his hand to get it off.

Continuity mistake: When Jeff finds the second box (after the freezer room) he takes the card and flips it over to see the picture on the back. In the closeup his thumbs are on the bottom corners, but then the shot cuts away to a view from his left and you can see that his left thumb is at the top left corner and his right thumb is as least halfway up the card (instant cut, no time to move his hands).

Continuity mistake: The blood stains (streams) on Jigsaw's chest constantly change after Jeff slices his neck. Sometimes the only blood stain is a trail that goes directly down the side of his hospital gown, other times it's halfway down his chest. The shots constantly go back and forth, so it's not just the blood flowing down his chest.
