Continuing the interesting and seemingly never-ending plot line seen in Saw III, Saw IV was another one of the series that focused on plot line rather than the gore and violence that was seen in the first three movies. Here are the traps from Saw IV:
Saw III is where the series took a turn for the better…or worse.
