Saw III is the third installment in the Saw horror film series. The film is a joint effort of both Saw 's writers/directors, James Wan and Leigh Whannell, and Saw II 's writer/director, Darren Lynn Bousman. Saw III follows the previous film's antagonist the Jigsaw Killer (more commonly known as Jigsaw), along with his new apprentice Amanda, as they painfully teach their victims to appreciate life.

The film has been dedicated to Gregg Hoffman, producer of the first two movies. Hoffman died on December 4, 2005, shortly after the official Lions Gate announcement of Saw III.

Saw III is rated R for Strong Grisly Violence and Gore, Sequences of Terror and Torture, Nudity and Language according to the official website. This will be the first film of the Saw franchise to include nudity. The film was so anticipated by the fans, that the teaser trailer that was placed in front of the film The Descent was bootlegged and published online on the day of release.

Saw III began production on May 1, 2006 and principal photography on May 8, 2006 in Toronto, Canada in preparation for the films October release. The final shooting draft of the script was written in under a week in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, by Leigh Whannell based on an idea by creator and Saw director James Wan.

Before filming, according to the Internet Movie Database (IMDb), the producers of Saw III asked the producers of Scary Movie 4 if they could use their version of the Saw bathroom for Saw III, as it was an exact replica of the other two bathrooms used for Saw and Saw II, which were both dismantled. This means that the infamous bathroom will once again be shown in Saw III. This was also confirmed by the makers on the Scary Movie 4 commentary.

According to director, Darren Bousman, the fans of the "House of Jigsaw" Message board heavily influenced this film, as a trap mentioned in the forums is being used in this film.

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

Jigsaw has vanished. Now aided by his new apprentice Amanda (Shawnee Smith), the puppet-master behind the cruel, intricate games that have terrified a community and baffled police has once again eluded capture and vanished. While city detectives scramble to locate him, Dr. Lynn Denlon (Bahar Soomekh) is unaware that she is about to become the latest pawn on his vicious chessboard. One night, after finishing a shift at her hospital, Lynn is kidnapped by the deranged Amanda and taken to an abandoned warehouse where she meets Jigsaw, a.k.a John Kramer (Tobin Bell), who's now bedridden and on the verge of death. Lynn is told that she must keep the madman alive for as long as it takes Jeff (Angus Macfadyen), another of his victims, to complete a game of his own. Racing against the ticking clock of Jigsaw's own heartbeat, Lynn and Jeff struggle to make it through each of their vicious tests, unaware that Jigsaw and Amanda have a much bigger plan for both of them.

Lynn is a mother in her 30s, kidnapped by Jigsaw due to certain "dark secrets" she has kept from her loved ones.

Jeff is a father grieving over the death of his son. Even though the death was an accident, Jeff has never been able to forgive himself. A few of Jigsaw's other victims have had something to do with Jeff's son's death in one way or another, giving Jeff a choice in his part of the game - either help them or watch as they die a slow, painful, and, in Jeff's mind, well-deserved death. The official site for the movie has recently added an interesting sound effect, resembling that of a heart monitor, which begins to flat-line if the user's cursor doesn't move enough on screen. This effect plays a large part in Jeff Reinhart's role as he must "play against the time of Jigsaw's own heartbeat."

The largest part of the Saw franchise is the traps Jigsaw plans out for his victims, and Saw III is not short of them.

The first official trap is the Twisting Crucifix. The victim's head, arms, and legs are attached to a metal machine in the shape of a cross as the victim screams in terror. Each end is able to twist 360 degrees, taking the victims head, arms, and legs along for the ride by spinning him around.

Danica is shown hanging by her arms in a room where two identical vertical poles spray her naked body with cold water as she screams and attempts to regulate her breathing. Jeff is standing in a doorway near her with a rather frightened expression and looking off in the distance. More than likely, this is one of the women associated with Jeff's son's death, and Jeff has the choice to save her or let her freeze to death. This trap is similar to an act of torture given by the infamous Elizabeth Báthory.

This trap features Troy, who finds himself in an empty, forgotten school classroom. As the television screen turns on, Jigsaw's puppet, Billy, is shown. Billy reveals that Troy had been in and out of prisons for quite some time and if he wishes to live, he must break free of the chains before the timer stops. If time runs out, a bomb in the room will detonate. The chains are hooked through his skin in various places, including his lower jaw, shoulders, arms, hands, legs and Achilles tendons. When the television screen turns off, he painfully pulls the chain rings through his skin, but does not manage to remove some chains, including the one on his lower jaw, before time runs out. A new photo on www.sawtrilogy.com shows Kerry in the classroom examining his corpse (which is in flaming pieces), and either Amanda or John in the school with the pig mask on. It is assumed by some fans that they follow Kerry home from the school and kidnap her at her house, which is shown in a new teaser trailer. Video Clip

During this scene, Jigsaw states that it's night, although light (possibly moonlight or from an artificial source) is shining through the windows.

According to the MTV SAW 3 Preview, upon entering a room Jeff hears the voice of a man screaming for help. As he searches around for the man, a large vat in the middle of the room begins to emit a loud, pulsating buzz. Jeff climbs up a ladder to see a man attached to the bottom of the vat by a metal brace holding his neck. As he screams for help, Jeff plays a tape. Jigsaws voice tells him that when the Judge presiding over his son's murder trial sentenced the murderer so lightly, his soul never recovered. He now has the power to sentence the man's soul straight to hell, or he can choose to forgive. As the tape player ends, a series of large, interlocking saws up above the man begin to whirl and buzz. Hanging from a conveyor like bar comes out a dead, rotten pig filled with maggots. The pig is dropped onto the saw blade and ground up, with a viscous thick gray liquid hitting the Judge in the face and choking him. Video clip

* Kerry is hanging from the ceiling in something that looks like a leather belt strapped around her body and neck, attached to several chains hanging from the ceiling. Hanging next to her is a jar containing an unknown green liquid. In her video it says "You have one minute to find a way out", it also says in the new trailer "the device you are wearing is hooked into your ribcage" then it cuts off there, and then it shows her screaming. There is also much controversy over whether the trailer depicts her dead body in the trap or if it is, in fact, a dummy showing what will happen if she does not escape. In the new Halloween Trailer, it shows Kerry on a TV screen staring into the video camera, then either John or Amanda (probably Amanda since John is almost dead) with the pig mask on coming up behind her and capturing her.

* Lynn is screaming for help while tied to a chair and she seems to have removed her cloth gag. She is shown with a harness-like trap on, with what looks like shotgun shells pointing towards her neck. These shotgun shells appear to be hooked up to something, possibly Jigsaw's heart monitor, so that they should shoot if Jigsaw should die.

* Jeff is sitting in a small box, banging and kicking and screaming, "Let me out!" A small amount of light seeps through the cracks. This may be where he wakes up after being kidnapped by Jigsaw.

A scene from Saw III was going to be shown when the action/thriller film Crank opened in theaters on September 1. However, the MPAA did not allow the preview, due to the scene's reportedly large amount of gore. For similar reasons, an early teaser trailer for the movie being removed from the official Saw III site.

The next trailer released featured flashbacks of Jigsaw attaching the "Reverse Bear" trap to Amanda and applying his makeup for posing as the corpse in the bathroom from Saw I.

Around 1000 posters were made and were sold for $20 each in support of Saw III. All 1000 posters were sold hours after they started selling. One of the posters was made with Tobin Bell's blood (mixed with the printing ink to create a deeper red color) and will be auctioned off. The auctioned poster is also signed by the entire cast and crew of Saw 3. All the proceeds from the auctioned poster will go to the Red Cross.

At Spike TV's Scream Awards on October 10, 2006, Tobin Bell and Shawnee Smith appeared on stage with director Darren Lynn Bousman. The two actors staged cutting Bousman's head open, whereupon Shawnee found a blood-saturated piece of film on his brain. This led to a "World Premiere" trailer featuring the plight of Troy in the Body Chains trap.

In a promotional video featured on Myspace, Billy, Jigsaw's puppet addresses the watcher in the same fashion as the videos in the film. He states, "Hello are you watching me on Myspace? Good. Up until now you've just sat there as a voyeur watching other people in their videos without a care about who that person is. Well, what do voyeurs see when they look into the mirror? Lets find out. Right now you are being watched and if for one second you forget that your being watched, you will lose. Your only way out is to understand these numbers: 1, 0, 2, 7, 0, 6. Find the meaning and you will live. Just remember, Knowledge changes everything."Video Clip The numbers represent the release date of the film October 27, 2006 or 10-27-06.

In an article posted on Bloody-Disgusting, it has been revealed that Tobin Bell, aka Jigsaw, may be returning in a sequel to the Saw trilogy.

Tobin Bell, who plays Jigsaw in Lionsgate's Saw franchise, wasn't joking when he said he was signed on for five sequels... we received multiple confirmations yesterday that various writers have been tapped to write different scripts for Saw 4, which would hit theaters next October if Saw 3 performs well the weekend of October 27th. How many writers are on board? We think right now four, but haven't been able to confirm an actual number- but we do have a few names that we unfortunately cannot share at this time.
