Horror Case Files: Saw 4 (2007)

Eric and Hoffman captiveSaw 4

After Saw 3 became a financial hit, they made a fourth. The Horror Case Files reveal the background story, kill count, most creative kill, the killer(s), and what happened to the killer(s). WARNING! SPOILERS if you continue.


Officer Daniel Rigg is playing Jigsaw’s game because he has to learn how to let go of things.

Kill Count

8 people

Most Creative Kill

Detective Eric getting his head smashed by two blocks of ice.

The Killer(s)

It is revealed that Detective Hoffman is Jigsaw’s other apprentice.

What Happened to the Killers

Officer Rigg couldn’t let go and rushed into the final room triggering the trap to kill Detective Eric. Hoffman was also in a trap, but he reveals he set up the game. The big surprise is that these events happen the same time Saw 3 is happening.

Horror Case Files Verdict

It’s just gore time. I think this could have been a spinoff with Detective Hoffman taking on the legacy. It tries to pay homage to the first one, but like the third one, it doesn’t get interesting till the end. Another ehhh. The traps are interesting, but it just gets repetitive.

Random Info I got from this File:
  • Don’t eat during a Saw movie
  • Photographing a crime scene can be dangerous even after the crime has happened
  • If you hear a creepy puppet make noise, don’t move closer to it
File Status: 5 out of 10
