SAW

A series of mysterious deaths brings to light a new killer, called Jigsaw. He renders his victims unconscious and leaves them trapped. Usually they have to free themselves from a mechanical trap.

However, continuing to live has a price, which is usually to torture or mutilate himself or a counterpart.
