The Entire Saw Franchise Timeline Explained

The Entire Saw Franchise Timeline Explained

The first entry in the long-running Saw franchise took the world by storm in 2004, despite its relatively simple setup: Two men wake up to find themselves trapped in a grimy bathroom and are forced into a claustrophobic game of life or death — a game where they get to choose the outcome, although the odds are stacked against them. The film got a leg up on other horror pics that year and spawned a sprawling universe populated by crooked cops, secret schemes, and nefarious traps, all orchestrated by Jigsaw himself — or so it often seems.

With so many players in this long-running game of will and retribution, it’s worth taking a look back over the events of the films to see how the pieces all fit together. Here’s the entire Saw franchise timeline explained.

    Wait.. John dodged Cesar’s attack and watched him die in an in progress trap.. he never intended for that to happen.. right??

  2. ExtoSlide on September 25, 2022 at 2:13 am

    2:54 the reason why john decided to let logan have a second chance was because of the drug he gave him and the fact that he didnt wake up in time to be able to have a fair chance like everyone else did, not because of the mislabeling

  3. Irfan Didorally on September 25, 2022 at 2:13 am

    Damn that was boring lol

  4. Brandon S. Hernández on September 25, 2022 at 2:15 am

    Personally to me Jigsaw (2017) was way more confusing than the other Saw 7 films

  5. Kenya Henry on September 25, 2022 at 2:15 am

    Nice refresh now I feel ok to watch Spiral

  6. Retro Gamer on September 25, 2022 at 2:16 am

    Jigsaw thinking that he actually has the merit to be some "godlike" figure that decides what should happen to people just because they appear "unappreciative" of their lives is complete fucking bullshit. "I have cancer. Therefore, I matter more than everyone who doesn’t." Lots of people have cancer. That hardly makes them "better" than anyone who doesn’t. Jigsaw is full of shit. In Saw II, he says "I despise murderers." Yet, in the VERY FIRST SAW MOVIE, he hires a man to kidnap a doctor’s wife and child so that just in case time runs out before the doctor escapes the trap successfully, he can…….say it with me, everyone….MURDER THEM!!! Jigsaw is a fuckin’ hypocrite. It is ABSOLUTELY murder when you put someone in a trap and set it up in such a way that there is NO POSSIBLE WAY OF ESCAPE without death. True, not all have died, but most have. That’s not teaching anyone a lesson. That is mentally and emotionally shattering them forever, instilling in them a lifelong bout of PTSD. This is how full of shit Jigsaw is. Entertaining movies the Saw films are, but painting the central character at the center of all of the films as some "mentor figure" who has the RIGHT to decide what should happen to other people’s lives that he knows nothing about? BULL….SHIT.

    Ok verified pendejo status here.

  9. Emman Samar on September 25, 2022 at 2:20 am

    I REALLY LOVE THIS WORLD. I mean, Imagine how they stitch and reveal everything in an order. Just wow. I watched this series a few weeks ago and I am not going to escape this franchise. The twists are entertaining and well played. Although yes, it is not perfect, I can clearly say that I really understood everything! The way John influences his accomplices and manipulate other people will make you think twice also.

    Indeed, a classic franchise. I wish I was born earlier than 2003 so I can see this on the big screen.

  10. Blue Guy on September 25, 2022 at 2:21 am

    After watching these movies again. Cause its October and why not? It made me think. What happens in 4 at the beginning didn’t make sense. They found a tape inside of John’s stomach but his body was not found until after the events of 3/4. Those events are what set Hoffman off on his test. As well as Rigg obviously.

    I had came to the conclusion that what happens in the beginning was after those two events. Then I realized, wasn’t his test was during the events of 3/4? That’s what I remember. I guess my memory isn’t great. Guess my original assumption was correct.

    That’s why I am so happy to find this. Cause I was going crazy thinking about this.

  11. Artoria Pendragon on September 25, 2022 at 2:21 am

    2:42 technically Cecil killed himself by trying to kill John, John just sideway himself and Cecil went on the Barbwire Trap

  12. FINNESE CEO on September 25, 2022 at 2:21 am

    Makes no sense but aight

  13. Blake Phelan on September 25, 2022 at 2:21 am

    John definitely didn’t throw Cecil into the razor wire. He just side-stepped and Cecil fell into it…

  14. SMASH on September 25, 2022 at 2:22 am

    There is so much going on

  15. Son Goku on September 25, 2022 at 2:22 am

    Still I didn’t understand

  16. Bas Mater on September 25, 2022 at 2:23 am

    They milked this cow dry if anyone wants to watch saw movie just watch the trilogy ignore the rest

  17. Beltran Public Account on September 25, 2022 at 2:24 am

    i think you forgot saw 3d

  18. Coach Carter on September 25, 2022 at 2:25 am

    John didn’t kill Cecil.

  19. Jason St John on September 25, 2022 at 2:27 am

    John did not throw Cecil into the razor wire……….

  21. loser loser on September 25, 2022 at 2:32 am

    what’s the first song’s name?

  22. jack pemble on September 25, 2022 at 2:34 am

    Brilliant film series but so confusing the flashbacks dont even appear in order. Seth baxter isn’t seen until saw 5 but yet his trap was before every trap in the first film. Logan Nelsons barn trap happened even before seth baxters but yet isn’t seen until jigsaw its crazy

  23. Tayler Parsons on September 25, 2022 at 2:34 am

    Saw 1-3 had superior quality, writing, plot and acting compared to the rest. It’s no secret that those are the cream of the crop of the franchise. I write off the others a lot of the times because I can’t stand Hoffman or the directing style. This is why I’m so excited to watch spiral, its fresh and Darren is back. They’re gonna get the train back on the tracks. Having said that, I’ve been pretty harsh because this timeline really shows how intricately connected the films are which in itself is a feat that James and Leigh should be proud of.

  26. Diego A. Salazar on September 25, 2022 at 2:39 am

    CZs World has covered it all in multiple videos…. instead so confusing.

  27. TedMcCarthy on September 25, 2022 at 2:39 am

    I watched this video, hoping there was some redeeming value to these series of movies but I found none.
    I find these movies to be highly disturbing.
    Can somebody tell me why anybody would like this movie series so much?

  28. Richard Bright on September 25, 2022 at 2:40 am

    Riping off CZW again

  29. Golden Gamer on September 25, 2022 at 2:40 am

    This person who’s speaking sounds like the dude from the hello neighbor animation

  30. Ad Venom on September 25, 2022 at 2:41 am

    2:40 minutes: John didn’t kill him or throw him in the wires, the other guy tried to attack him to get revenge and ran into it🙃

  31. Rogue 704 on September 25, 2022 at 2:41 am

    wait! Eric Matthews, good looking detectibe guy???

  32. MsDarra on September 25, 2022 at 2:41 am

    CZsWorld has some great videos on this series as well.

  33. Looper on September 25, 2022 at 2:42 am

    What do you think about the Saw movies?

  34. Yu Xuan Zheng on September 25, 2022 at 2:46 am

    This is just too convoluted!

  35. EastCoast Paper on September 25, 2022 at 2:47 am

    i think its just easier to list off all the people who are not on the side of Kraemer

  36. LapulgaPTY on September 25, 2022 at 2:47 am

    Saw 1 and 2 are the originals ones, the rest are plain simple crap

  37. DESTRO350 on September 25, 2022 at 2:48 am

    John didn’t kill Cecil, he jumped into that razor wire cage himself.

  38. Pat D on September 25, 2022 at 2:51 am

    This video would have been better if there were little labels in the bottom which said which movie each moment was from.

  39. Adam Shotts on September 25, 2022 at 2:55 am

    Never watched any of movies but given this video, looks worth watching them. Just I needed to how many Saw movies is out there, thanks

  40. Langa on September 25, 2022 at 2:55 am


  41. Sleepyheartss on September 25, 2022 at 2:55 am

    I dont get it dude. Youre spitting out a bunch of names super fast and its hard to follow who is who. And Ive watched all 6 movies years ago. Still confuses me…

  42. Hanif Halimi on September 25, 2022 at 2:56 am

    still confused af

  43. RDU23 on September 25, 2022 at 2:57 am

    The main gist of this entirely long series basically is Jigsaw find 3 people who share a same mind like him and "groom" them to be candidates of who will inherit his mantle of psychopathic vigilantism. The twist is these 3 apprentice do not know each other and their hidden affiliation to Jigsaw.

  44. Mr. Reborn on September 25, 2022 at 2:58 am

    Coulda just shot the guy to begin with ffs

  45. Nemo on September 25, 2022 at 3:00 am

    I would like to put my first oncologist through a painful test, nearly 17 years ago after giving me a round of chemotherapy he just gave up on me. He told me that there was nothing he could do and surgery wasn’t viable because he believed it wasn’t worthwhile to save my life and he told me this devastating news with a huge grin on his face. I was only 34 years old married with 2 young children.That same week I personally sought out the help of a surgeon who after agreeing to help me he removed my cancerous lung and lymph nodes which save my life. That same oncologist now works in the same hospital and department as my current awesome oncologist, I made sure I told every doctor and nurse looking after me to keep that man far away from my case and told them why. My friend was under his care and he withheld her treatment because in his opinion she was too overweight and too weak for treatment, she died painfully. I tried so hard to get her to ask for a second opinion but she felt that his colleagues would agree with him. He’s still practicing medicine and I’m wondering how many more have died by his incompetence. That’s why he should be in one of those traps.

    Literally 2 commercials for every 20 seconds of content 🤦🏻‍♂️

  48. Bruce Leroy on September 25, 2022 at 3:07 am

    This confused me ever more

  49. dudda on September 25, 2022 at 3:08 am

    I think Bobby Dagen’s game was designed by Doctor Gordon, not Hoffman, because he was present at the meeting and also because Bobby has to get his teeth out …
