Tis the season!!
YAY to scary movies up the wazoo...and the one series that still confuses me (anyone else have trouble following this storyline?!) is "SAW". So, behold!! Some fun yet ewww facts about the first movie:
1. Leigh Whannell not only wrote the first film, but starred as Adam, the photographer locked in a bathroom with Dr. Lawrence Gordon (Cary Elwes). Whannell went on to produce the following six films.
2. To escape from the reverse bear trap, Amanda (Shawnee Smith) has to stab and dig through the stomach of her cellmate to find the key. His "guts" are actually a pig's uterus.
3. When Adam begins to smash Zep (Michael Emerson) with the toilet lid, he is actually hitting a garbage bag full of fake blood.
4. The only dummy used in the movie was the burnt corpse of Mark Wilson (Paul Gutrecht), who died while trying to save himself from a slow-acting poison in his body. All the other "corpses" were played by actors.
5. While most victims in popular horror films are female, everyone killed in "Saw" is a man. Equal rights! Hollerrrrrrrr.
