Top Ten Best Saw Traps

The best traps and tests from the Saw movie series.

The Top Ten

1 Reverse Bear Trap from Saw

I think it's actually the camera work that makes this trap look so awesome. The bathroom trap shouldn't be 1st in my opinion, it's too simple.

BTW, the Reverse bear trap was better in saw 1 than in saw 6 (just thought I should add that :P). - Krumeater

The reverse bear trap is the best. It's too bad that we don't see it in action until the second time, but it looked different the second time, especially how it opened at the end.

Check out the reverse bear trap in SAW: The Final Chapter to see it rip a human's jaw open for real. Disturbing, yet oddly satisfying

Of course...

2 The Angel Trap from Saw III

A harness connected to the rib cage due to pull out all off your ribs, the key is inside a beaker of acid which is capable of burning flesh. - MacaulayB

This is the most painful trap I seen by far people like the bathroom trap beacasue it's the first one or the original or the one that started it all that's annoying I hate people who think and say the original is the best just die please

Looks like a beautiful trap but very deadly as she is ripped apart in gory detail

It's kinda cool except it kinda loses its purpose because you can't escape - icantthinkofausername

3 The Rack from Saw III

painfull and hard to watch. Really brutal and graphic violence, nice special effects and a guy get his head blown off by a shotgun. When his head twists at the end it is just crazy. BRUTAL. Nailed to cross like Jesus! Ouch!

A tarp that's to hard, brutal, painful, horrible and just awful to watch but also something that is too gripping to look away from. Great film.

A rotating lock around arms, legs and head will turn 360 degrees, breaking the arms and legs and eventually the neck. - MacaulayB

The worst trap by far

4 Pound of Flesh from Saw VI

Two subjects are forced to cut off as much of their flesh in order to tip the scale, thus saving their lives, depending on whoever donated the larger sum of flesh in under a minute.

Bloody horrible if I was one of them I would not donate any flesh and just have two nails or whatever they are to the head, though I'd probably end up regretting it.

Two people compete against each other to donate the most flesh the loser will have a device drill into their skull. - MacaulayB

5 Bathrooom Trap from Saw

Two men in a bathroom what could be any more crueler - 51d3y

Awful. I'm surprised it's even in the top 10. It was far to simple.

This is the classic saw trap

The Trap that started it all.

6 Death Mask from Saw II

sntch must cut out his eye or will die brutally (who could cut out there eye) - 51d3y

Cut his own eye out was so dang disturbing

7 The Pendulum Trap from Saw V

If I was in Hoffman's shoes and I found that one of my family members was murdered, I'd get revenge as well, no mercy for the wicked

This one should be in number 4 because it cutting though him slowly

Dude it was so nearly when it cut his guts out

This one is bloody

8 Carousel Trap from Saw VI

This trap is scary, William Easton is responsible for the lives of 6 of his employees. He can make a sacrifice to save someone but he can only do it twice!

One of the most creative traps, it's like Russian Roulette in some way

Probably the best trap besides the reverse bear trap and angel trap - robertoiglesias271

This is my favorite trap because of its creativity and the tension

9 Five Become One from Saw V

unsure of name five people unknowingly knew each other must sectretly work together to survive - 51d3y

Love this trap

10 The Garage Trap from Saw 3D

Evan awakens in a car. He's there for being racist. He is glued to the seat of the car. His girlfriend is under the tilted upwards car, about to be crushed by the tire. One of his friends has a chain hooked to his jaw and arms, the other is in the way of the car, about to be splattered. Evan has 30 seconds to reach for a lever that stops the contraption. If he doesn't in time, the car will drop and move forwards, crushing his girlfriend, pulling out one of his friend's jaw and arms and then splattering his other friend. He crashes through a door, and slams into a wall. Evan's flies out and dies. The end.

Brutal, but was a trap we all wanted and needed to see in action. Saw 3d may have been awful, but it had the best traps by far.

Not only is this trap very grusome, but it involves 4 people. Also, Chester Bennington is in it :) It would be hard to rip all of the skin off of your back, but he learned a lesson for being racist!

Fun fact: He was originally going to successfully pull the lever and there would be a scene of him going to the hospital, but Chester Bennington was on a tight schedule, so they decided to make him lose instead. Frankly I’m not disappointed with that. - TheNotRacistButt

16 Laser Collars from Saw VIII

The laser collar is from jigsaw by the way

I almost puked when I saw this scene. It should be in the top ten.

19 Water Cube from Saw V
20 Classroom Trap from Saw III

Just like the angle trap


21 The Seeing Trap from Saw VII

This trap is gruesome to watch but so amazing so please vote for the seeing trap. Watch the trap where you can and you'll see what I mean when I say that this trap is awful, evil and hard to experience. Love saw!

Three poles coming at Suzanne. Two to go into her eyes and one to go through her mouth. She's strapped in so can't escape. Horrible to watch but it's worth it so make sure you check it out!

You are so right this trap is horrible but great to watch. Check it out and you'll see what we mean people. I love saw so much. It's a super film.

22 The Knife Chair from Saw IV

shows jigsaws true colours to a drug dealer - 51d3y

This trap is scary

23 Flammable Jelly from Saw

This should be number 1 because death of fire is painful

This should be number 1 it was so painful

27 Razor Wire Maze from Saw

With two hours to escape out a room, only one problem a razor maze is in the way, capable of cutting really deep into the skin. - MacaulayB

Really good trap should be at least 8th

A scary trap

28 The Scalping Seat from Saw IV

Why is no one voting for this one. This amazing.

29 The Furnace from Saw II

pyromaniac (or fraudster) gets burnt when he gets greedy perfect irony for him - 51d3y

This should be number 1 you do know the most painful way to die is burning to death

He burned to death in a small spot could get any worst

Anything with fire is the most painful

30 Pig Vat from Saw III
31 Steam Room from Saw VI

The main character must suffer burns in order to give a girl accesss to a corridor which she would need to cross in order to get the key that would save her before the time runs out, but the guy who is helping the girl doesn't know that the key to her freedom is in his stomach… but she knows - arewefriends

32 The Hanging Room from Saw VI

There was a girl in a freezing room getting splashed with a liquid that will end up freezing her to death. the key to her survival is a key surrounded by extremely cold bar that a man has to press himself up agains in order to get the key and save her - arewefriends

It will cool me up

36 The Motorcycle Trap (JIGSAW)

I love the design of this trap.

37 Razor Box Trap from Saw 2

This shouldn't be so low. This fits the bill of a trap better than most of all the saw "traps".

If I'm thinking of the right one it the now where the only way to successfully release the antidote without it spilling is to grab the bottom but there is a ring of blades so you can't move your hands down far enough to reach the bottom of the antidote without putting the blade ring up to your elbow and any length of your arm that is inside of the box will get decapitated… so the price of the antidote is to loose an arm up to your elbow… lol this was really hard to explain - arewefriends

You are pretty much right but instead of an antidote it was a key - Jonerman

38 The Elevator from Saw II

The way she died was so gross. Pity Because she was pretty - DubstepLover

I believe this one is just a girl that got killed by poison… I don't recall a trap that has anything to do with an elevator in saw 2 - arewefriends

39 The Waffle Iron from Saw 2

The waffle Iron was meant for Addison but she managed to kill herself earlier by taking gus's trap.The antidote would be placed in the middle of a waffle iron, as soon as the victim was selfish enough just to get it quickly, the waffle iron would clamp down on the victims hands. The trap would hold the victims hands tightly, but moving the antidote back (away from the victim if they only used one hand). The waffle iron would then start to brutally burn and scar the victims hands. In need of the antidote, the victim must of remembered what the tape said. The tape said they must place their head on top of the Waffle Iron to apply enough pressure. By doing this, the burning would stop after a while and when enough pressure has been applied. But at a price of scarring their face. The antidote would go back to where it was before in reach for the victim to take. If they took less time to apply pressure at the top of the waffle iron, their hands would completely burn, scar and bleed and the ...more

40 Fish Hook Trap from Saw 3D

There is a key in a girls stomach attached to a fish hook that will free her from a trap will she will get holes driven into her throughout which would kill her. a man must pull the key up through her throat and the nails that will pierce the women speed up every time the noise level gets above a whisper - arewefriends

This one is brutal
