What Happened to the Killers

Jeff loses the game by killing Jigsaw after watching his wife get shot by Amanda.  Jeff shoots and kills Amanda, the instead of letting go of what Jigsaw did to him, he kills him too.  By killing Jigsaw, it detonates a trigger on Jeff’s wife’s (Lynn the doctor) collar, which blows her head off.  Jigsaw was actually playing a game with Amanda, because she was setting up unwinnable traps.  He told Amanda to let Lynn go, but she shoots her.  Jigsaw and Amanda are dead and Jeff is sealed in the room.

Horror Case Files Verdict

This is where I felt the series started to go down hill. The story doesn’t get anywhere except the end. They just did it for the gore hounds, and the twist wasn’t that hard to see coming. It’s an ehh. If it’s on tv, and you have seen the other two, watch it, but if not, you can pass.

Random Info I got from this File:
  • If you see yourself on tv, start shooting
  • Power drill, the choice operating tool for brain surgeons
  • Grounded up pig, the only way to drown a person
File Status: 6 out of 10
