Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘The Rack’ From ‘Saw III’ (2006)

I’ve been in a bit of a Saw mood lately.  And that mood was enhanced yesterday at the Days Of The Dead horror convention in Los Angeles when Jigsaw actor Tobin Bell confirmed that we should not make any plans for Halloween in 2017.  Obviously insinuating another Saw movie is coming, with rumors already starting a few months ago.

So on this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday I’m going back to 2006 with Saw III, which had one of my all-time favorite traps.  I’m talking about ‘The Rack’, a contraption that holds a father’s murdered son’s killer in it.  Jeff lost his son to a drunk driver named Timothy, and he is about to pay unless Jeff decides to spare his life.  What unfolds makes me squirm every time I watch as Timothy’s limbs start to literally twist around as Jeff frantically tries to decide if he should save him.  The clip cuts off before the unfortunate end of Timothy though – let’s just say his head is the last body part to turn from Jigsaw’s contraption and he doesn’t survive.  Oops – spoiler alert.
