Strahm playing a gameSaw 5

Saw 5 follows the events of Saw 3 and 4.  Too Scared to watch it?  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.


Agent Strahm is getting close to finding out that Hoffman is the new Jigsaw and there is another game being played.

Kill Count

5 people

Most Creative Kill

A man gets sliced open with a constant swinging blade.

The Killer(s)

It is revealed that Hoffman’s sister got killed and the murderer didn’t serve a lot of time.  So Hoffman decided to copy one Jigsaw’s game and put his sister’s murderer in it.  Jigsaw captured Hoffman and put him into one of his own games.  Hoffman passes, and Jigsaw starts teaching him the ropes.

What Happened to the Killers

Strahm confronts Hoffman.  They fought, and Hoffman ends up falling into a box full of glass.  The catch is, the box of glass is the safe spot of the room.  The walls of the room close in and crushes Strahm.  Hoffman is lead to safety in his box.

Horror Case Files Verdict

It wasn’t that exciting, the game was actually dull and had no real purpose to advance the main story. You don’t need to see this film.

Random Info I got from this File:
  • Always play nicely with others
  • Apparently copying is not the best form of flattery
  • Holding your breath is a good skill to have or poking a hole in your neck
File Status: 4 out of 10
