Html 42 Saw Narrative in SAW In horror texts, the narrative trigger for the film has usually occurred several years before the events of the main feature’s narrative or plot. In Friday the 13th, for instance, Jason has drowned in the Camp Crystal Lake over a decade before the murders begin, and in Paranormal Activity, Katie has been haunted since she was eight. In SAW, John Kramer was diagnosed with cancer far before the events of the film begins; and we actually see little or nothing concerning his victims’ transgressions; we only meet them as they wake up in their traps.

Within the opening sequence the film’s theme and what are established with a typically vicious efficiency (all textual discussions of the film use the SAW Special Edition DVD cut). SAW opens with the disorientating close-up of a face under water. An electric blue light on a key chain is the only source of illumination, and, as the chain slowly descends through the water, its glow cuts through the murk to illuminate a man’s closed eyes and shut mouth. The intertitles share the same powdery hue as the water, and they too shimmer and waver as if sunken, blurring the diegesis.

Bluster is his only defense within this torture chamber. However, his predicament is finally linked to male experience; he admits to Gordon, at the eleventh hour, that he has ‘a family too! I don’t see them, that’s my mistake’. ’ There is an antagonism that we recognise as understandable mistrust, and a refusal to ‘back down’, to maintain control; but also, default male arrogance. ’ It is only when the characters finally put aside this misplaced sense of pride and cooperate that they begin to get anywhere.
