The Jigsaw Anthology is a series of shorts (is 40 minutes short) focusing on those trapped within Jigsaw's games and traps.
Taking the trap/game subplot of the Saw films and cutting out the cop and flashback elements to showcase a faster paced, less plot-centric and more gore-focused version of the series for those out there with low attention spans
A few years ago, I recut 2,3 and 5 into this format, but they're not up to my current standards, so I'll redo them to incorporate them into this series, but for now, I'm starting with the most recent one in the franchise
Using Jigsaw (2017) as a base and trimming away the cops trying to figure out who is behind the game and everyone chasing a ghost, this leaves the five people playing the game in The Barn. I've colour graded the entire thing to align closer to the earlier films, taking away the reds and the blues to bring out more of the greens inside the setting. I've also added the older Lionsgate intro as the gritter look matches better with the Saw films than the new angelic look, although I've kept the updated Twisted Pictures card as I do like it a lot more.
I've created my own little title sequence, it's nothing too impressive but it gets the job done.
The ending has now been rescored by this film's rendition of "Hello Zepp" a piece that closes out all of the Saw films. This is included much later in the theatrical cut, but has been put here as that footage is now on the cutting room floor. New credits have also been added, again nothing too substantial but I did want to credit that cast that are left and the more important crew (director, writter, editor, music) instead of the 9 or so producers.
Total Runtime is 41:53 and is unlikely to change unless I want to cut something out, but I'll see if there's anything trimmable in the test screening.
