  • They Both Die at the End – General Review
    Summer break is the perfect opportunity to get back into reading. Adam Silvera’s (2017) novel, They Both Die at the End, can serve as a stepping stone into the realm of reading. The pace is fast, action-packed, and develops loveable characters. Also, Silvera switches point of view each chapter where narration mainly focuses on the protagonists, […]
  • My Favorite Book – Freshwater
    If there’s one book that I believe everyone should read once in their life, it’s my favorite book – Freshwater by Akwaeke Emezi. From my course, Queer Literature under Dr. Bill Albertini, I discovered Emezi’s Freshwater (2018).

Pulse Reviews – Saw 2

Grade: B

Every Halloween weekend, movie studios release all of the horror films they have been saving in hopes to capitalize on the time of year.

“Saw 2” picks up shortly after the original film and we find that the “Jigsaw Killer” of the original film is continuing to play his sick games on people in hopes to teach them to appreciate life.

This film finds a police detective trying to locate a house in which a group of people are being slowly poisoned, one of which is his son.

While the movie maintains the same tension that made the original good, this film seems to input way too much useless plot devices.

There are a few characters that hold absolutely no purpose but to say a few lines and die off unspectacularly.

Aside from this, the story of “Saw 2” remains faithful to the original with its overly sadistic violence and moments of shear terror that made its predecessor so memorable and original.

It also keeps the audience guessing about what is going to happen all the way to the closing moments of the film.

Despite its faults, “Saw 2” is an enjoyable film that runs just over 90 minutes and it goes by fairly fast.

While it’s not for the overly squeamish, some of the traps have its victims meeting fairly gruesome ends, I recommend seeing this movie, especially if you are a fan of the original film.
