This series and Eli Roth's Hostel films led to birth of the "torture porn" genre in horror. While the original Saw, suffers from some very amatuerish acting, it's still of the most original, unsettling, and dare I even say "intellingent" horror films of the last ten years. As for the sequels, can't say I'm the biggest fan. Same recycled storylines and over-the-top blood and gore, the writers really seem to be stretching this already very thin idea as far as it can go. After Saw 3, you could tell that studio greed took over, which explains why a new movie was churned out every Halloween for the last several years. They should have stop this series after the third one; especially considering Jigsaw dies at the end of the movie.
