Movie Summary

Darren Lynn Bousman
Saw II is the terrifying second installment in the popular horror phenomenon that took the genre by storm, set box office records and has continued its amazing run far beyond anything anyone ever would have thought. Franchise killer Jigsaw plays a more ambitious game this time. He has locked a bunch of people in a house. The instructional cassette informs them that they have - without knowing inhaled a lethal gas which will take effect in two hours. In the room is a safe, and inside is the antidote. They have two hours to find the numbers to the code which are located somewhere within his booby trapped house. The youngest of these captives is Daniel Matthews, and his father Eric is a locally renowned police detective. He and his team have miraculously arrested Jigsaw, but can detective Matthews get him to reveal the whereabouts of his son before time runs out?
