Top 10 Most Gruesome Saw Deaths

These are deaths from the saw movies that made you cringe the most. This is not how cool the trap was its who died in the worst possible way.

The Top Ten

1 The Rack - Saw 3, Timothy's Death

Classic death trap will be remembered for a long time, as the legendary Saw trap, that twist's people and it also leaves a message it saying the people are twisted - roblist

You know when you feel as if that's happening to you and just get goosebumps and sudden shiver... Yeah. That's how I found it. Most gruesome death and very hard to forget/get over the image for weeks

Really? A slow death where your arms are slowly torn off using twisting? This at least deserves the number 2 spot.

Dude jigsaw said it was his personal favorite. Plus it breaks all of his limbs and then snaps his neck

2 The Angel Trap - Saw 3, Kerry's Death

The most painful part is certainly having the ribs ripped open. It might not have looked so bad if it had been a finger or something but having the ribcage (which seems like one of the stiffest bones in the body) just sounds nasty.

Ribs ripped open AND hand burned to a crisp! That is an insanely horrible way to go! Imagine how scared she felt when she realized that the trap was inescapable!

yes, it was really gruesome plus I liked Kerry very much. This franchise sucked after she left - Alexandr

Ribcage torn out while searching for key in jar of acid. - lukestheman4

3 The Lawn Mowers - Saw 7, Alex's Death

OMG! That's the most gruesome Saw Trap EVAH! I saw Saw 7, and when I saw that trap, I said WOW. I haven't unseen that trap. My brother putted me a prank with that trap and well, I punched him. He was inconscious. I don't recommend that trap. Really.

Blended and shredded to bits. - lukestheman4

A scary way to die


4 The Pendulum Trap - Saw 5, Seth's Death

Not only would you be screwed as soon as the blade slit the skin of your midsection (bye bye, viscera), but this is a wonderful reference to Edgar Allan Poe.

Did I mention he had to crush his hands. - lukestheman4

Sliced in half by pendulum blade. - lukestheman4

Wow now that is deadly

5 The Reverse Bear Trap - Saw 7, Jill's Death

This scene was awesome. It was nice to actually see what the reverse bear trap looked like in action on an actual person, as weird as that sounds...

I really find this trap disturbing and hard to watch. But I still don't get how that kills her. - DubstepLover

It was awesome I loved that they decided to bring that trap back the scene
When her jaw ripped open was pretty cool

Jaw permanently ripped open and face destroyed. - lukestheman4

6 The Venus Fly Trap - Saw 2, Michael's Death

Damn I don't think I know anybody who could escape it.

Stabbed several times in the face and head while stabbing his eye out for key. - lukestheman4

Well you have got to amit digging through your eye is just horrible

He had to cut through his eye and take it out this should be number 4

7 The Body Chains - Saw 3, Troy's Death

I cringed so hard when it showed the chains hooked into not only his skin and haw, but his Achilles tendons. I couldn't watch anymore after that

Blown to bits by a bomb while ripping chains out of his skin. - lukestheman4

The classroom trap was like troy got chains in his foot arm hand. and then troy died because he got ripped

The was more painful then the reverse bear trap

8 The Pound of Flesh - Saw 6, Eddie's Death

Imagine cutting off your own arm to survive like Simone did. While having sixty seconds to do so or else your own death will occur. Scary, painful and disturbing if you imagine yourself as the character and their fear during the scene.

He was cutting open his stomach and dropping chunks of fat onto a scale until Simone severed her arm, making the scale in her favor, piercing Eddies skull.

Imagine cutting your own flesh off. Scary, gruesome

Skull pierced by two gears while cutting off pieces of flesh. - lukestheman4

9 The Knife Chair - Saw 4, Cecil Adam's Death

A man on a chair with blades piercing his arms and legs, has to escape by pushing his face through a bunch of knives to press a button. The chair breaks, he tries to stab Jigsaw, but falls into razor wire... Game over

This trap was slow and painful folks

The death was so bloody and no one has to watch it

Cicel murdered jigsaw unborn child

10 The Silence Circle - Saw 7, Nina's Death

Throat impaled by four spikes while having a key pulled from her stomach on a fish hook, tearing up her esophagus. - lukestheman4

I started gagging while watching this gross

I saw this and couldn't go to sleep! The moral of the story: don't watch saw at night!

The hardest one because of choice


The Contenders

11 The Glass Coffin - Saw 5, Strahm's Death

The only death that actually makes me gag a little bit. You can clearly see his bones protruding out of his skin as he's being crushed to death. - Catacorn

Wow! I think this is the worst Dead EVER! Some traps of saw 5 are so cool, and cruel

That would be terrible just getting crushed to your death

This should be in number 2 you see how his arms cracked open

12 The Public Execution Trap - Saw 7, Dina's Death

Dina deserved to die because she broke Brad and Ryan's hearts

Sliced in half by buzz saw. - lukestheman4

This one was the craziest because it was in public

They literally broke up with dina

13 The Acid Trap - Saw 6, William's Death

The most unfair trap in the franchise. Reason why is because William went through all the tests, followed the rules and risked his life to save his people. It is such a shame that he had to die in a very unfair way. He didn't deserved this.

The acid trap is so brutal

A sick trap

14 The Garage Trap - Saw 7, Kara's Death

Head crushed and body ripped to shreds by a moving car. - lukestheman4

It was so gross and when her boyfriends back got ripped

This trap killed 3 people really fast

15 The Impalement Wheel - Saw 7, Suzanne's Death

Jesus this needs to be higher! Having your eyes and mouth impaled slowly by three metal rods is just nasty!

The brutal anticipation of your eyeballs slowly getting pieced is just horrifically moving

This trap pushed to the limit

Blargh, I can't watch it!

16 The Brazen Bull Oven - Saw 7, Joyce's Death

Used ever since the Dark Ages if I remember correctly. Plus the elaborate process of it setting itself up looked awesome. This is one to do research on.

17 The Jars - Saw 5, Charles's Death

Blown to bits by several bombs. - lukestheman4

18 The Hair Trap - Saw 4, Brenda's Death

Brenda is tied to a chair and her hair trapped in gears. A man beside her has to figure out the mechanism so that he can get her hair out before it is ripped off and she is scalped.
