Saw (2004)

Reverse bear traps aside, this ain’t it, horror fans.

It’s October, and in an utter travesty of movie-watching, Macintosh hasn’t seen NEARLY enough horror movies for this, the spoopiest time of year. To fix that, we’re starting off with 2004’s Saw, a movie that was a BIG FREAKING DEAL when it came out, but that Macintosh & Maud have never seen. We discuss the film-school level “justice” of the movie’s ending, the indescribably bad acting of one Cary Elwes, and why writing is crucial to low-budget filmmaking.

Macintosh & Maud have started a Patreon! Any little bit you can contribute helps, and we have special contributor-only content if you donate at the $2 level, including our newest episode reviewing Love, Simon!
