  • And today we're presenting the saw Timeline explained for this video.

  • We're piecing together the full story from the Saw franchise in chronological order.

  • So grab a note, pad, some snacks and maybe a barf bag, because this is gonna be one convoluted and messy cinematic ride.

  • Also, please note this video contains spoilers galore.

  • Saw is a property that requires very little introduction.

  • From its modest beginnings as a low budget short film, it's grown and expanded to become a billion dollar franchise.

  • Eight installments have been released to date, not to mention various video games, comic books and numerous theme park attractions.

  • The films have grossed over $976 million at the box office, And that's not counting home video streaming and merchandizing profits.

  • Looks like our friend Jigsaw likes to book himself front row seats to his own sick little games.

  • The property enjoys near universal name recognition, something that can only be set of a select handful of horror franchises.

  • And with 1/9 film, Spiral, starring Chris Rock and Samuel L.

  • Jackson, having completed filming at the end of August 2019 saw shows no signs of slowing down.

  • Whoever did this has another motive.

  • The targeting cops.

  • If you're not familiar with the saw franchise beyond the first couple of films, you'd be forgiven for thinking that it just rehashes the same old formula.

  • But the game began this.

  • Listen, yes.

  • Each film involves people being forced to endure extreme physical and psychological torture is part of elaborate Life and Death Games.

  • But the films also tend to jump back and forth in terms of time periods, continuously expanding the mythology of the franchise by drawing connections between the various victims, killers and cops.

  • Why you such a cop?

  • 26.

  • That's called being a father.

  • Trust me, you're better at being a cop.

  • Films are best watched in order of release, but to fully appreciate this tapestry of gore, it helps to try to put this bloody jigsaw puzzle together.

  • Across the various Sequels, viewers have repeatedly been brought back to before the events of the first film, filling in the back story of the various supporting players as well as the man at the heart of this gruesome story.

  • John Kramer, his name is John has an inoperable frontal lobe tumor.

  • Once upon a time, John Kramer was a happily married civil engineer whose wife, Jill, operated a clinic for addicts.

  • She eventually got pregnant on Lee.

  • For the child to be killed in utero by a patient in John's World began to fall apart.

  • He was soon diagnosed with terminal cancer and attempted to take his own life.

  • It was the moment I decided to end my life.

  • It was only after this failed suicide and crawling from the wreckage of his car and agony that he learned the value of life.

  • Divorced from his wife, he made it his mission.

  • To teach others to appreciate existence by forcing them to face death.

  • The jigsaw killer was born.

  • Those who don't appreciate life do not deserve life.

  • Cramer's first victim was Cecil Adams, the man who killed his unborn child.

  • Greed took the life of an innocent child.

  • Give me time to explain, Please, I can't give you time.

  • No one can times illusion.

  • Suffice it to say Cecil failed the test.

  • Over the course of subsequent games, Cramer perfected his craft and even found his first apprentice in Logan Nelson, the sole survivor of his barn game.

  • Together, they continued to orchestrate various deadly tests of survival.

  • When someone copied Cramer's calling card, however, John tracked down the copycat detective Mark Hoffman, what you're doing.

  • After subjecting him to a little test of his own, he added another accomplice to his team, Kramer, eventually turned his attention to Amanda Young, another of his wife's former patients, who, after killing a man to survive the test, became yet another convert and apprentice.

  • She help me.

  • This brings us to the events of the first film, 2000 fours saw in it.

  • Cramer's oncologist, Dr Lawrence Gordon, and photographer Adam Stan Haider tested in a plot that also implicates David Tap, a detective who was discharged when he became obsessed with Jigsaw.

  • He was discharged from the police force, broke down after his partner was killed.

  • Among them is Amanda, who is, of course, really working with Jigsaw Cure for death itself.

  • Okay, answer is immortality.

  • There's also Matthew's own son, Daniel.

  • Daniel makes it out, but his father winds up locked in the bathroom.

  • He breaks his foot to escape on Lee to end up in the clutches of another Cramer apprentice, Detective Hoffman, who still works as a police detective on the Jigsaw case.

  • The events of Saw three and soft four actually play out simultaneously, making this period of time in the franchise extra convoluted.

  • What do I want?

  • Yeah, E wanna play a game around this time, John Kramer's old lawyer, Art Blank, is kidnapped and subjected to a jigsaw test.

  • He survives, but rather than a willing apprentice, he becomes an unwilling minion.

  • Blank, Amanda and Hoffman organized other bloody games for new victims, while Cramer undergo surgery, which proves successful.

  • You haven't seen anything yet.

  • Unfortunately for all parties involved, the whole thing ends and even messier fashion than usual.

  • Abductee Jeff shoots Amanda and Slices Cramer's throat, killing Jigsaw but causing the death of his wife.

  • Hello, Officer Rigg.

  • If you are hearing this, then you have reached Detective Matthews on Detective Hoffman in under 90 minutes, resulting in their deaths.

  • Rules were clear, with Cramer and Amanda both dead.

  • Hoffman has effectively taken over the mantle of the Jigsaw killer, and the scariest thing about that is the fact that he's being treated as a hero by the media.

  • Thank you, thank you very much.

  • Oh, throughout this ordeal, if we've learned anything, it's that human life is sacred.

  • However, agent Peter Strahm has escaped from the trap.

  • Hoffman left Yemen, and he's now rightly suspicious.

  • A tense game of wits, lies and deceptions ensues, but just a Strom seems to get the upper hand on Hoffman.

  • He's killed by a trap.

  • Not only does this would be hero wind up another victim, but he's framed is a killer by Hoffman, who uses Strom severed hand to plant fingerprints.

  • And then Hoffman essentially goes on his merry way, continuing to set up deadly games like he was taught.

  • Unfortunately for him, Jill Kramer's wife has slowly but surely been pulled into the fray by her late husband's legacy.

  • Over the course of the previous films, she gives Hoffman a taste of his own medicine, leaving him to die in a reverse bear trap.

  • John left you five envelopes, 61 was for me.

  • This'd Johns will.

  • But just like his mentor, Hoffman refuses to die easily.

  • He escapes the trap and start setting up new games.

  • His most recent high profile target, Bobby Dagen, Unauthorized, published a book falsely claiming to have survived Jigsaw.
