Do you folks like playing games? I used to love playing games. Then I saw Saw, and ever since then, every time I hear someone say “I want to play a little game” or something along those lines – whether it be in a creepy voice or not – I can’t help but think of Jigsaw, the little tricycle clown puppet from the Saw series.
Given that we are dangerously close to Halloween, perhaps you’re in scary movie mode. If so, the Saw series is a great way to kill a whole day. With a total runtime over 7 films equaling somewhere around 666 minutes, that’s a solid 11 hours (if you don’t stop at all) of horrific entertainment.
Admitted, the Saw films aren’t for everyone. I can’t say that I’ve seen all 7 of them, but the ones I have seen have been creepy, scary, gory, and hard to stop watching. Not everyone is into that – I wouldn’t recommend watching it with your kids, but whatever you do as a parent is obviously totally up to you. See the thing is, kids can have trouble deciphering reality from fantasy at times. I know I did as a kid. Where kids might be really freaked out (and potentially even traumatized) by the sight of Jigsaw, adults know where the line is drawn and can enjoy it without fear that Jigsaw is going to pop up in their own lives.
But what if he did?
Could you imagine what it would be like living with Jigsaw? From the looks of it, it’s less about death or grave injury and psychological trauma, and more about minor inconveniences. EVERY DAY.
Have a look:
So when you finally DO make it to work late, for the fourth time this week… You figure there’s going to be a bit of relief, right?
Well, the thing is… Jigsaw needs to make a living too, meaning the office is not safe either.
You know, Jigsaw may be a jerk, but he DOES make an excellent Halloween costume… Especially if you want to make all your friends howl with laughter.
