Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this horror sequel isn't for kids, though plenty of gore-loving teens will probably want to see it. Like its predecessors, it follows a series of characters trapped in terrible, torturous situations. Characters meet gruesome, bloody ends: suffocation, freezing, being shot through the neck, being pulled apart while attached to hooks and chains, neck and limbs being twisted and broken, and even a head exploding. One character performs graphic brain surgery, and another -- who's emotionally tormented -- cuts her own thigh. Repeated references to a 6-year-old boy who was hit and killed by a drunk driver. A woman appears getting out of bed (post-sex) with a man; another is shown hanging by her arms, completely naked (full frontal). A doctor pops anti-depressants and appears dazed while working on a little boy in the ER. Profanity includes 35+ uses of "f--k."

Sexual Content

Kerry appears in the tub (body visible from the shoulders up); brief scene of adulterers in the same bedroom; woman victim hangs by her arms, chained to a freezer ceiling: she's nude, and you see several full-frontal shots (everything is visible).


Incessant torture, pain, and blood. Torture implements include saws (circular and hack), mechanical devices, hooks, chains, guns, knives, explosives, freezer, a limb/neck-breaking machine; victims are bound and gagged, ripped apart by machines, exploded, sliced, frozen, suffocated by plastic bag, shot, impaled, and nearly drowned in pulverized pig (gloppy, disgusting substance); Amanda cuts herself on her thigh (and in a flashback, you see that she cut herself habitually); a doctor performs brain surgery (graphic, using drill and saw); victims are abruptly grabbed by hooded/masked figure; flashbacks to a little boy on his bike hit by car (still photos); flashback shows Eric (from Saw II) sawing/slamming off his own foot, then attacking Amanda (punching, slamming with board) and calling her names.


Repeated uses of "f--k" (35+), in addition to other profanity (one use of "c--t," a few instances of "s--t," "damn," and "hell").

Social Behavior

Devious death designer Jigsaw (John) preaches against vengance, insisting that he teaches "lessons," but he's a murderer, no matter what he says.


Not applicable.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Lynn pops anti-depressant pills; in a flashback, Eric calls Amanda a "junkie bitch" (though you don't see instances of her addiction in this installment).
