Saw is a horror franchise distributed by Lions Gate Entertainment and produced by Twisted Pictures that consists of seven films and two video games, published by Konami. The franchise began with the 2003 short film which was created by Australian director James Wan and screenwriter Leigh Whannell to help pitch as a potential feature film. This was successfully done in 2004 with the release of the first feature film at the Sundance Film Festival. It was released theatrically that October. The franchise revolves around the fictional character of John Kramer, also called the "Jigsaw Killer" or simply "Jigsaw." He was introduced briefly in Saw and developed in more detail in Saw II. Rather than killing his victims outright, Jigsaw traps them in situations that he calls "tests" or "games," to test their will to live through physical or psychological torture.
In "Don't Blow Your Wadska", Mondo and Woodie awake to find themselves handcuffed in a kiddie pool while Wadska, disguised as Jigsaw, tells them of his torture involving poisonous spiders, snakes and centipedes to the one who doesn't get the key over his head. Needing to get to Jeena, Mondo begs Woodie to allow him to take the key and Woodie agrees along with a list of further demands. When the tub on creatures falls on Woodie, he can only puzzle at the fact that he is wearing a bathing suit. When the boys later demand to know why Wadska always acts like a creep, Wadska admits that all of his activities were based on the boy's favorite movies and that Saw is Woodie's favorite gore film and the tub of insects that was dumped on Woodie were all gummies, Woodie's favorite candy.
