“Jigsaw” John Kramer (Tobin Bell) is physically dead, but his spirit lives on. This time, William Easton (Peter Outerbridge), the boss of a medical insurance company, became the target of his hunting and testing. William is greedy and cunning. He invented a set of calculation formulas for medical insurance, and at the same time, with the help of his minions, he successfully refused insurance for countless terminally ill people, earning black-hearted money from it. However, he did not expect that one day he would hand over the decision-making power of his life to others. He must carefully find a way to escape in accordance with the rules of the “Jigsaw” game.
On the other hand, Mark Hoffman (Costas Mandylor), one of John’s disciples, successfully killed police officer Strong and tried to draw the police’s attention to Strong. However, all kinds of signs have already made his peers doubt Mark’s identity. His identity is about to be exposed, and his road of violence against John’s spirit is slowly coming to an end…
“Saw VI” is a 2009 horror film directed by Kevin Greutert and written by Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton. It is the sixth installment in the “Saw” franchise, and features Tobin Bell reprising his role as Jigsaw, the mastermind behind a series of gruesome and deadly traps.
In the film, Jigsaw’s accomplice Hoffman (played by Costas Mandylor) continues his reign of terror, setting up traps and testing the moral limits of his victims. Meanwhile, a corrupt health insurance executive named William Easton (played by Peter Outerbridge) becomes the latest victim in Jigsaw’s twisted games, as he is forced to make life-or-death decisions in a series of traps designed to punish him for his greed.
“Saw VI” received mixed reviews from critics, with some praising its themes of morality and social commentary, while others criticized its graphic violence and lack of originality. The film was a commercial success, grossing over $68 million worldwide. It was also notable for its use of 3D technology in select theaters.
Despite its mixed reception, “Saw VI” remains a popular entry in the franchise among fans of the horror genre and the “Saw” series. It was followed by “Saw 3D” in 2010, which was marketed as the final installment in the series, but was later followed by a soft reboot, “Spiral: From the Book of Saw,” in 2021.
