Saw 5 Beginning happened...when?

Asked by bluedoggiant (648points) May 3rd, 2009

In the beginning of Saw 5, it shows Seth Baxter being killed by Detective Mark Hoffman. Did this happen like technically speaking “before saw 1”?

Number 2, at the end of Saw 5 it shows Hoffman going into the house…after some time, I realized its the same house with the poisonous gas in Saw 2, except with furniture, was it originally Hoffman’s house, but they used it for the Saw 2 test?

This confused me to all hell when i rented it from Blockbuster.

I think that 5 is like the big compilation of all of them and the beginning of the movie shows movie 3? When the cop shoots the fat dude that was looking for his daughter?

Oh, if you guys are lost, this will definitely help you:

saw 3 and saw 4 happened simultaneously lol, no joke

so technically, when he shoots the fat dude, thats right, because the ending of saw 3 and saw 4 are the same, they happened LITERALLY at the same time, just different points of view, so saw 5 just picks up where it left off

but I am talking about the Pendulum murder… its only available on the unrated disc

saw 6 will be coming October 23th, they started filming March 30th

Official synopsis:
Special Agent Strahm is dead, and Detective Hoffman has emerged as the unchallenged successor to Jigsaw’s legacy. However, when the FBI draws closer to Hoffman, he is forced to set a game into motion, and Jigsaw’s grand scheme is finally understood.

When Hollywood realised that there was still money to be made from the franchise.

@uberbatman haha do you not like them? I thought the dark knight you would be the best movie I will ever watch until a couple weeks ago I got hooked onto Saw like DRUGS.

not really…but you know :)

@bluedoggiant i thought the first Saw was pretty good and original. I actually liked that i was finally watching an original horror movie for once, and then Saw 2 came out…. and then Saw 3…. etc etc. Just fucking stop already lol. Great you made a good movie, quite while your ahead instead of doing like every other horror movie franchise.(just keep churning em out until no one cares anymore)
Guess what?
<——this guy stopped caring a long time ago lol.

@uberbatman haha

you clearly have not seen saw 4…lol, and even saw 5 is intriguing! Can’t wait till Saw 6 xD

First one was best, 2 sucked, 3 wasnt bad, 4 i cant remember and 5 i didnt like because they brought in that whole “group survival” aspect that 2 had, you already knew they’d all back stab each other. Then the story gets so convoluted meh.

Glad i never got into Hostel, Hostel 2…

i feel like they are trying to steal the fire from Friday the 13th with longest drug out horror series :P

I am seeing a trend.

@Triiiple I have to agree, 2 was absolutely terrible, 1 wasn’t exactly the best, 1 and 4 is a close tie though. saw 3 was ok.

Heh, I didn’t see the similarity between saw 2 and saw 5 until you said that, its not exactly the same, I see what you mean though.
