Note: The following text may contain spoilers

SAW II is a horror sequel, from 2005, in which a group of people are abducted and challenged to avoid gory deaths by solving cryptic puzzles, while a detective tries to identify their location.


There is strong, gory, sadistic violence throughout. People find themselves caught in traps which cause a variety of lethal injuries - broken limbs, burns, flayed skin, and stab and gunshot wounds. There is fighting with bladed and spiked weapons, with an focus on bloody injury detail.

There is strong language throughout ('f**k', 'motherf**ker'), as well as milder terms such as 'bitch', 'ass' and 'shit'. There are some flashback scenes in which a woman uses heroin and later tries to take her own life by cutting herself.
