Saw II (2005)

()

Horror, Mystery |

Saw II is a horror film directed by Darren Lynn Bousman and written by Leigh Whannell and Bousman. It is the second installment in the Saw film series. The film stars Donnie Wahlberg, Franky G, Glenn Plummer, Beverley Mitchell, Dina Meyer, Emmanuelle Vaugier, Erik Knudsen, Shawnee Smith, and Tobin Bell.

The film features Jigsaw being apprehended by the police, but trapping the arresting officer in one of his own games while showing another game of eight people — including the officer’s son — in progress on TV monitors at another location. It also explores some of John Kramer’s backstory, providing a partial explanation of his reason for becoming Jigsaw.

Informant Michael Marks awakens in a room with a spike-filled mask locked around his neck. A videotape informs him that in order to unlock the device, he must cut into his eye to obtain the key. He sets off the timer and finds the scalpel, but cannot bring himself to retrieve the key and is killed after sixty seconds when the mask closes.

At the scene of Michael’s game, Detective Allison Kerry finds a message for her former partner, Detective Eric Matthews, and calls him in. Despite not wanting to be involved in the case, Eric reluctantly joins Kerry and Officer Daniel Rigg in leading a SWAT team to the factory, which produced the lock from Michael’s trap. There they find and apprehend John Kramer, the Jigsaw Killer, who is weak from cancer.
