Rated R · 2006
Milestone in Motion Picture History: On Halloween weekend, 2006, Saw III grossed $34.5 million to become the Iraq-war era's bloodiest chart-topping torture movie whose victims don't include Jesus of Nazareth. God -- or Jack Valenti -- only knows how this work of pure entertainment got an R rating "for strong grisly violence and gore, sequences of terror and torture, nudity and language," including the scene wherein a woman hangs butt-naked from the ceiling of a cold meat locker, shivering to death as she's periodically sprayed with water. Director Darren Lynn Bousman favors a bile-green lighting scheme (bile green may very well be the new orange) and likes using subliminally fast edits in some of the torture scenes, pushing the envelope of post-MTV horror. Most of this is laughably absurd, but, unlike the first Saw, the epic third installment gives no indication that its humor is remotely intentional.
