Saw II (2005) – WTF Happened to This Horror Movie?

Preparing for Saw X, the latest episode of the WTF Happened to This Horror Movie video series looks back at 2005’s Saw II

It’s time for another episode of the WTF Happened to This Horror Movie? video series, and with this one we’re preparing for the September 29th theatrical release of the latest Saw sequel, Saw X, by looking back at the first Saw sequel: 2005’s Saw II (watch it HERE). To hear all about it, check out the video embedded above.

Directed by Darren Lynn Bousman, who also wrote the screenplay with Leigh Whannell, Saw II has the following synopsis: On the hunt for the twisted vigilante and serial killer Jigsaw, Detective Eric Matthews and his team must apprehend the elusive murderer to rescue eight people trapped in an abandoned house, before they succumb to his torturous and murderous games. One twist to this task is that Matthews’ own son, Daniel, is among the eight people Jigsaw has chosen to test for their lack of morality. With nerve gas pumping through the house, every second counts.

The film stars Tobin Bell, Shawnee Smith, Donnie Wahlberg, Erik Knudsen, Franky G, Glenn Plummer, Emmanuelle Vaugier, Beverley Mitchell, Timothy Burd, Dina Meyer, Lyriq Bent, Noam Jenkins, Tony Nappo, Kelly Jones, Vincent Rother, and Arrow in the Head founder John Fallon.

This is what the WTF Happened to This Horror Movie series is all about: Hollywood has had its fair share of historically troubled productions. Whether it was casting changes, actor deaths, fired directors, in-production rewrites, constant delays, budget cuts or studio edits, these films had every intention to be a blockbuster, but were beset with unforeseen disasters. Sometimes huge hits, sometimes box office bombs. Either way, we have to ask: WTF Happened To This Horror Movie?

The Saw II episode of WTF Happened to This Horror Movie? was Written, Narrated, and Edited by Tyler Nichols, Produced by Lance Vlcek and John Fallon, and Executive Produced by Berge Garabedian.

A couple of the previous episodes of the show can be seen below. To see more, head over to our JoBlo Horror Originals YouTube channel – and subscribe while you’re there!
