R | | Crime, Horror, Mystery
Despite Jigsaw's death, and in order to save the lives of two of his colleagues, Lieutenant Rigg is forced to take part in a new game, which promises to test him to the limit.
Darren Lynn Bousman was originally not interested in directing the fourth installment in the "Saw" series, but the producers persuaded him to read the script anyway. Bousman decided to take the directional duties when a plot twist in the script took him completely by surprise, something he thought impossible after being involved in the "Saw" series for three years.
Subject's name is John Kramer. 52 year old male; Caucasian. He's seen better days.
(at around 54 mins) When Rigg approaches the door to the classroom, in which the husband and wife have experienced their trap, the painted red '?' on the door is still wet.
There is an unrated director's cut available (known as the Extreme Edition in other countries), which restores - amongst other footage - violence cut for the 'R' rating.
