9 TORTURE PORN BECAME POPULAR DURING THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION. With the emergence of the torture porn genre in the 2000s, the Saw film series, along with similar films such as Hostel and The Devil's Rejects, is frequently singled out as an example of the prevalence of exploitive graphic violence and gore in horror films during the “waterboarding” era.

10 The film starts with Seth in the pendulum trap. The trap is later revealed to be unwinnable, but Seth is made to believe that the aim of the trap is for him to push buttons inside of two devices which would crush both of his hands before a bladed pendulum (intended to slice him in half) descends upon him.

11 Meanwhile, Agent Strahm shoots Jeff and enters the room where Jigsaw died. After investigating and finding Jigsaw's corpse, the door is locked on Strahm. Strahm manages to exit through a secret door, and finds a recorder. The recording warns him he can find salvation or die in the room, and urges him to make the right choice. Photos © 2008 Lionsgate. Review © David Bruce

12 He disregards it, then is attacked by a figure in a pig mask. He wakes to find himself in one of Jigsaw's traps. His head is in a sealed box, which quickly starts to fill with water. Before he runs out of air, he performs a tracheotomy with the tube of a ballpoint pen in order to breathe. Photos © 2008 Lionsgate. Review © David Bruce

13 Meanwhile, five people wake up in a sewer, in a neck tie trap. This trap involves pulling against a cable to get a key at the end of the room to release themselves. The consequence for not completing the trap is to be beheaded. Can there be any salvation from death? Photos © 2008 Lionsgate. Review © David Bruce

14 Consensus Voice: “Thank goodness Lionsgate made another Saw film! Otherwise, how would we as a country get to feel good about ourselves while watching humans suffer through prolonged torture, degradation and death?” -- Rafer Guzman, Newsday Photos © 2008 Lionsgate. Review © David Bruce

15 1.People choose life over death 2.Despite circumstances we must exercise what choices and opportunities we have Side Note: Sadly, torture seems to hold a fascination with the American public Photos © 2008 Lionsgate. Review © David Bruce

16 Serial killer Jigsaw prefers to target rapists and murderers, so the human slaughter is made somewhat more acceptable, because we presume these folks are getting what they deserve –not! Disturbing as the Saw series is, it does point to a truth: People want to live! We do not want to die. In the Hebrew Torah we read, “Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses... Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!” (Deuteronomy 30:19) Good words, indeed! Review © David Bruce

17 Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome. --Isaac Asimov Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives. --A. Sachs Do not fear death so much, but rather the inadequate life. --Bertolt Brecht Review © David Bruce

18 “Is there life before death?” ―Graffito Review © David Bruce
