JIGSAW is a US horror film in which police investigate a series of gruesome murders that resemble the killings of the infamous serial killer, Jigsaw.

Violence

There are scenes of sadistic violence in which people are forced to participate in murderous 'games'. Bloody moments include limbs being ripped off, a man's head being cut open and shootings and neck stabbings, all of which are depicted with strong gory detail.

Injury detail

A dead body lies on an autopsy table and there are repeated shots of a badly injured head which has been sliced open, exposing bone and brain matter. Another dead body is discovered with its skull completely caved in.

There is also strong language ('f**k'), scenes of strong sustained threat, moderate sex references and references to the death of a baby.
