What are the best movies like Saw ?

When watching a horror/thriller flick, you could either be a conservative critic who would opt to skip the bloody scenes or you could be the brave type who would rather digest the film for what it is. Well, if you are more of the latter, then Jason Wan's 'Saw' must have got you excited! Even now that the franchise has given the bloody scenes a rest, you can still dive into the realms of on-screen thrill and paranoia by way of other similar films. And by similar here, we aren't just pertaining to the killings, the blood, and the gore. More so, some of the films on this list simply possess that shock value that Saw inflicted to its viewers, and yes, that same shock you've always wanted as a horror afficionado. Don't scroll down if you are weak at heart because most of the movies here could give you sleepless nights.

  1. 1Hostel


    Even with your buddy right beside you, going on a backpacking outdoor adventure isn't going to be an easy option after you watch Hostel. The brutality that the tourists suffer in this eye-bruising thriller will totally remind you of those classic scenes from Saw and rightfully so, director Eli Roth executed the film's thrilling moments well.

  1. 2Dead Silence


    James Wan has done it again, this time, with Dead Silence. Although you can say that the horror master has recycled a lot of techniques that he used for Saw in this film, it still has a world of its own. Watch the movie and see how the story of murdered ventriloquist Mary Shaw leads you to a quiet but fear-enticing experience.

  2. 3The Texas Chain Saw Massacre


    "Who will survive and what will be left of them?" Those are the questions you'd ask while watching both Saw and this famous thriller. The story of Leatherface's killings and his use of human skin for his masks is grotesque enough for you to be scared. It's whole franchise is a testament to the terror it brings, which probably also inspired other gory films.

  1. 4Misery


    Well, the killer in this film is an innocent-looking female, and that's what makes watching this more terrifying. Misery has given Kathy Bates a well-deserved Oscar and that psychotic fan-girl role she plays should be enough to freak you out. Want to see how the film resembles Saw? Just watch the film!

  2. 5The Collector


    This 2012 thriller movie resembles Saw in many ways. First, there's a killer involved. Second, there are victims lined-up. Lastly, the overall visuals in the film are totally unsettling, to the point that you might have second thoughts on finishing it. Follow the story of how a robbery goes wrong when a more brutal crime is about to take place.

  3. 6The Collection


    As the sequel to 'The Collector', this movie would probably double the terror you felt while watching the first film. This time, the psychotic killer kidnaps and transports a lady to an abandoned hotel wherein a private maze of torture and death awaits. Very Saw-like, isn't it?

  4. 7Cube


    The scenes in Cube will remind you of how helpless the victims in Saw looked like. Both films share the same themes of terror, paranoia, and unpredictability. Watch how seven strangers are taken out of their daily lives and placed mysteriously in a deadly cube where they must find their way out.

  5. 8Ichi the Killer


    Ichi the Killer will give you lots of mixed emotions as you watch it. Well, for starters, it's not a horror film but it shows you the same grotesque scenes you'll find in the Saw franchise, or more! Watch it and see how a psychotic killer inflicts unimaginable levels of pain to a Yakuza enforcer.

  6. 9Martyrs


    If you thought that what you watched in Saw was bloody enough, then you should see this film. Martyrs is a French-Canadian production which will teach you a lesson about not going back to places where you've experienced terror before.

  7. 10Captivity


    What could possibly happen when a pretty model is held captive by a psycho? Well, there are a lot of scary instances that may occur and these things would mostly be brutal and nasty. This is exactly what you'll find in this terrifying thriller. Honestly, Captivity is just as disturbing as Saw, but it definitely injects its own freaky elements into viewers.

In popular culture, the number 666 is often associated with the devil or the antichrist. But did you know that the runtime of all the Saw movies from Saw to Saw VII adds up to a total of 666 minutes? Quite shocking? Well, that doesn't discredit the film at all as it was recognized by Guinness as the most successful horror franchise in 2010. The first six Saw movies earned a total gross exceeding $733 million. This record beat other big shot horror films like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. Considering that the first Saw movie was supposed to be a straight-to-video release, filmed in 18 days with a budget of only $1 million, the franchise’s success is proof of its greatness. Now, who says no to a reboot?

    "This is a classic "torture porn" film, which is a much better made film than SAW. The acting, story and production values are much higher, and the sense of purpose is more gripping. The events in this film could actually happen, making them scarier, while SAW strains credulity. Fans of SAW will love this film, and I suspect most will end up preferring it."

A friend recommended the film The Collection and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it. If you are a horror nut like me I would give The Collection a watch. You won't be let down!"

    "I love horror films. I think its the best genre of film making. I also love the Saw series of movies. Captivity was just what I needed. The genre is very risqué, but the plot was great. This movie in particular dealt with a top model being forced into a cage and the mental toll it takes on her."
