Jigsaw abducts a doctor in order to keep himself alive while he watches his new apprentice put an unlucky citizen named Jeff through a brutal test.
According to director Darren Lynn Bousman, the fans of the "House of Jigsaw" message board heavily influenced this film. It is also dedicated to the memory of late "Saw" producer Gregg Hoffman after his sudden passing in December, prior to the release of Saw II (2005).

When Detective Kerry is sneaking up to the door, you can see on the TV that she raises her gun up to her chest, but then the shot cuts away (instant cut) and she's still aiming the gun at the closet.
The Director's Cut, based on the unrated version, has about seven more minutes of footage and an extended ending, resulting in a running time of just over two hours.
