Synopsis:
Seven strangers with more in common than they think, wake up in a strange building flooded with nerve gas and only two hours to live. Forced through a series of tests for the chance to live long enough to escape, will anyone be strong enough to leave THE HOUSE?

The Jigsaw Anthology Series aims to cut the Saw films down to their most enthralling plots as characters are pushed to their limits and forced to play for life or death in a series of traps.
Intention:
As with the other entries in the Jigsaw Anthology series, this edit aims to cut the film to focus on the traps, with every entry serving as a mini-sequel to the first film. This presents the film as a standalone story that can be watched in any order in relation to the other edits. The cop drama that tends to show up in many of this films, is all gone, leaving the film to focus on the game that Jigsaw sets up for the protagonists.
Other Sources:
- Saw II (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
Release Information:
Digital
Cuts and Additions:
- cut everything with Eric Matthews and Jigsaw, they're never seen in this edit, Eric is only noted as being Daniels father in a photograph and nothing more
- recut, compressed, and rescored the ending with "Cut Necks" from the OST
- added new title sequence for the Jigsaw Anthology series
- recut credits to remove missing cast members

NOTE: I understand the limitations of the footage available to you, and I have adjusted my reviews accordingly :) great job on this anthology!

For whatever reason this movie has a nice nostalgia for me. You did a great job editing it together narratively, even though it abruptly ends (which is basically the only way it can given the removal of the cops, the safe, and the recordings, so no points off for narrative). As a standalone story the ending is a bit too abrupt for me, but I guess it's safe to assume that they used the numbers, got the antidote, and survived.

At 43:11 and 45:51 you have audio issues with overlapping cop dialogue, and maybe you could shorten/remove some of the muted dialogue at the end, it went on just long enough for me to think my speakers were messed up.

Very good short, the editing is concise and straightforward. I was amused to discover that we don't need the investigation plot to fully understand the stakes and the logic behind the games. I wish the music didn't cover the bit of dialogue at the end tho.
