One of my biggest fears, besides eating mayonnaise, is my fear of needles. Want to see me turn white as a ghost – then show me a movie that shows a needle going into someone’s arm. Yeah, I’m a big sissy when it comes to needles, which is why it’s not a surprise that I barely made it through watching Amanda (Shawnee Smith) get shoved into that pile of syringes in Saw II.
Welcome to Monday Bloody Monday, where I am shoving you into the Youtube clip of that very scene. Say what you want to about the Saw franchise (it’s just torture porn, blah blah blah), some of the traps were very effective and well done. And sure, tossing a former drug addict into a pit of dirty needles is a bit sadistic, but when you watch a Saw movie you’re obviously looking for something sadistic. We all have a little Jigsaw in us after all, don’t we? Check out the clip below and I’ll be in the other room while you’re watching.
