Saw V is the fifth movie in the Saw series from Canadian American horror film director David Hackl. Released in the year 2008, David Hackl brought back the designed story line from Saw II, III, and IV. Following the aftermath of the death of Jigsaw and his apprentice Amanda, this film primarily focuses on the events that led up to Detective Mark Hoffman being the new apprentice of Jigsaw, and how he will stop at nothing to prove himself and his loyalty to Jigsaw by continuing his games.
Five strangers find themselves in the middle of a large game that they believe is a survival of the fittest competition. Through the infamous Jigsaw doll, the message they receive is urging them to never follow their instincts and ignore his advice at their own hazard. What the five strangers begin to figure out is this game is not what they expected.
With the gruesome deaths that fans found in the first four films, more deaths and new types of traps will be seen. From a swinging pendulum, to a group of people having blades attached to their neck, and then the group needing to give up ten pints of blood to open to a new stage in the death game, this film is packed full of action, suspense, and gore.
Viewers will follow the story line much like the previous films with minor flashbacks and a variety of two different storyline that coincide with one another. One story follows Strahm and his venture on trying to put the case together and research more on the previous victims of Jigsaw.
Throughout the film viewers will find themselves on the journey of trying to figure out who the accomplice really is as well as learn more about Jigsaw's past. Strahm on the other hand, will have a whole new aspect to his case and his life brought to his attention.
