Brief Synopsis:
Five strangers wake up with buckets on their heads, unknown to them, they've just started playing Jigsaw's newest game within THE BARN...

The Jigsaw Anthology Series aims to cut the Saw films down to their most enthralling plots as characters are pushed to their limits and forced to play for life or death in a series of traps
Intention:
I wanted to cut down the films to their bare bones, stripping away the cop drama from most of the films and presenting each game as a stand alone story that can be viewed in any order

For Jigsaw, I wasn't so crash hot on the whole plot twist or the newest setting for the film so by removing all that, I now have a short entry in the Anthology that works without being a sequel/reboot,
Special Thanks:
SonOfSinbad for feedback on the initial cut
Release Information
MP4/M4V/MOV
Cuts and Additions:
- Colour graded on a scene-by-scene basis to align closer to the earlier films, taking away the reds and the blues to bring out more of the greens inside the setting
- Cut everything with the cops trying to figure out who is behind the game and everyone chasing a ghost, this leaves the five people playing the game in The Barn
- Trimmed lines here and there for fluidity between cuts
- Used the older Lionsgate intro as the gritter look matches better with the Saw films than the new angelic look

I´ve been pretty excited about this project and was keen to see the first volume.
After a short time of adjustment in which movie this one plays, i absolutley liked it. It is so much more mysteries and gore centered if the sideplot is out of the way.
So well done, nice fast gore horror. Another audiotrack (stereo) would have been nice, but it is a little piece in a absolutley good work.

keen to see the other volumes:)

I was able to have the time to watch this edit and I absolutely loved it. Jigsaw was just a massive mess in my opinion, but it was still good. This edit takes everything bad out of the film and sticks straight to the gore and horror of it.

I can not wait for volume two :)
