I still think they should have stopped at 3. After that it was just like a truck going downhill with it's breaks cut. You know it's going to stop, but not when, or, how messy it'll be.

6 is actually one of the best sequels on a par with 2 and 3.

I enjoyed the first for what it was, despite some script issues and some of the 'acting'.

The second and third installments rapidly started to shift downhill in terms of plot and script, as the producers pretty much started turning it into a: 'how can we fit the remnants of a story around loads of elaborate traps?' style scenario... the answer: 'not very effectively'.

I stopped watching these after the third, although have heard from various people that some of the later sequels aren't that bad.

Yeah but it isn't so good as to need a few movies of shit in-between. It's more than obvious it just turned into a cash grab.

This series lost me completely with 4 and 5. It sparked my interest again with 6 only to fizzle out completely with the last one.

1, 2 and 3 are the only ones of value in this franchise, its a shame that it went to shit so fast. Then 7 years after the last, had the great idea to produce more horseshit  :rolleyes:

Usually the gore would be enough to keep me, but the traps got worse and the characters got boring and might as well assume the directors came together and thought of the worst possible thing to add to the already shitshow of sequels on purpose when adding CGI.

The first 3 will always be loved as some of the first mainstream horror that showed extreme body horror and gore to me as a child. I will never forget walking out of the theater after watching a movie with my mom and friends and seeing the first poster for Saw (2004) on the wall of Amanda in the reverse beartrap. I just remember being so intrigued and I couldn't stop staring at it.

I've noticed that a lot of horror I watched as a kid I still enjoy to this day. Even though some of it was complete trash, just because my young mind latched onto it so much even though I wasn't really old enough to understand how to judge movies. All I cared about was the blood. And even though the sequels just got worse and worse as the years went on, I still made sure I saw every one of them at the hope that maybe the next one would be good and redeem the franchise. But to no avail.

I saw the original at the cinema back when it came out and I remember a man/woman couple walking out at a specific point (when the doll comes out on the tricycle).  I don't think the chick could handle it it creeped her out too much.  :gum:

But I didn't bother with the sequels much.  I saw Saw II and maybe Saw III a long time ago. 

I marathoned them recently, have seen up to VI now.

I still think Saw I and II are the best.  :yes:  Saw I because of the atmosphere and Saw II because of Tobin Bell.

Saw III is pretty good too.  I don't mind the others as well.  They are fun movies not to be taken too seriously. 

Kind of wish they didn't kill off Tobin Bell and Shawnee Smith's characters in Saw III because they are the most interesting.

I only remember the first one vividly (which I consider a great movie). The rest are completely forgotten.
