In Saw II (2005), Amanda Young slit her wrists with razor blades. By "Saw III" the cuts would have healed but left marks or scars. There are no visible marks or scars on her wrists but in Saw VI (2009), the flashback sequence which took place during the events of "Saw III" clearly make a reference to the scars on her wrists.
In Germany the film was released by Kinowelt in three different versions: the uncut theatrical (US R-rated) version (with a SPIO/JK approval, released in three editions: standard amaray, steelbook and 2 disc limited collector's edition), FSK-18 version (cut by 5 minutes) and FSK-16 version (cut by 21 minutes). The US unrated version of the film did not get a SPIO/JK approval and was therefore not released officially in Germany (it was however released in Austria, resulting in high exports to Germany).
