We put in order the main events of one of the most popular horror film sagas; Don’t let Jigsaw play you! The films of the Saw franchise have become a whole cult film saga within the horror genre, from the first to the last, a story that takes place over 15 years and that tells us about the suffering and panic of a series of characters condemned to suffer the most elaborate atrocities devised by Jigsaw, the villain in the shadows. But with so many films (so far a total of 8) and so many characters and situations, it is difficult to follow the thread of their stories without getting lost in so much blood and death trap.
Saw: one of the most successful horror sagas
For this reason, below we offer you the chronological order of the main events of the Saw film saga, since all the films are intermingled at the plot level and it does not make sense to establish an order of films without delving into their complex script.
