Adam en Dr. Lawrence Gordon worden wakker, om erachter te komen dat ze vast zijn geketend aan pijpen tegenover elkaar in een vieze badkamer. Ze ontdekken dat ze slachtoffers zijn geworden van "Jigsaw", een man die gevaarlijke situaties voorziet om zijn slachtoffers te leren hun leven lief te hebben, door hen te dwingen zichzelf of anderen te pijnigen om in leven te blijven. Jigsaw staat bekend als moordenaar, maar heeft nog nooit een slachtoffer echt zelf pijn gedaan. In een strijd tegen elkaar en de klok, moeten de twee van hun vijand winnen en Gordon's familie redden, die zijn gegijzeld door de 'moordenaar'. Zullen zij het redden?

- The MPAA originally rated the film NC-17, due to the film's tone; director James Wan had to remove some content to secure an R rating.
Detective Sing pursuing the Jigsaw killer was the last sequence to be filmed.
The scene in which Gordon turns off the lights and whispers to Adam was written differently in the script. The characters were to cut open opposite ends of a long pipe with their hacksaws and speak through it. This sequence was actually shot, but later cut because director James Wan decided that the characters being able to cut through a pipe made no sense if they couldn't cut through their chains.
Film's pre-production was only five days; it was shot and cut at the same time in 18 days (all of the bathroom scenes were shot in six days). The actors had absolutely no rehearsals. The rehearsal takes were actual footage for the film.
Filmed in 18 days.
