A collection of all seven Saw films released on Blu-ray

Saw is a horror film series created by James Wan and Leigh Whannell and distributed by Lions Gate Entertainment and Twisted Pictures. The films take place in a fictional universe that revolves around a serial killer, dubbed The Jigsaw Killer, who captures victims who he believes do not appreciate their life and puts them into traps to test their survival instinct. While starting as a film series, Saw has evolved to encompass numerous media forms including video games and comics as well as mazes and a roller coaster. According to The New York Times in October 2009, including international sales and revenue from DVDs, television and merchandise, the Saw series has taken in more than $1 billion, making it one of the highest-grossing horror franchises in history.[1] This comprises over 28 million DVDs sold and $665 million worth of ticket sales for the first five films alone, along with various other merchandise.[2] On July 23, 2010, the franchise was recognized by the Guinness World Records as the "Most Successful Horror Movie Series".[3]

The series debuted on October 29, 2004 with Saw. The film was met with much financial success,[4] which allowed the sequel, Saw II, to be created and released a year later. Subsequent sequels were released a year after the previous film, all on the Friday before Halloween. Seven films have been made in the franchise. The success of the films has inspired such products as Saw: The Video Game, which was published by Konami in 2009 and released before the sixth film.[5] Other products include a comic book, Saw: Rebirth, which was released before the second film.[6] The most recent products released were a second video game as well as a seventh film, both released in October 2010.[7][8]
