James Wan Recalls Coming Up With the Idea for Saw


One of the most lucrative horror movie franchises of all time would be the Saw series, which kicked off with the original film in 2004 from director James Wan and screenwriter Leigh Whannell. That first movie tells the story of two men, played by Cary Elwes and Whannell, who wake up chained in a dirty bathroom with what appears to be a dead man's body on the ground in between them. After several story twists and turns, it is revealed that this has all been orchestrated by Jigsaw (Tobin Bell), a cancer patient looking to teach others a hard lesson about the value of life.
