Friday Night Features: “Saw” Short Film

Kittens, it’s Friday, which means it’s time once again for Friday Night Features, your home on the web for interesting and innovative horror short films.  Tonight I thought I’d treat you all to a little trip back in time to 2003, when young unknown filmmakers James Wan and Leigh Whannell were trying to get financing to make their unusual horror concept film, Saw. With a minimal budget, they selected a scene from their script to film as a pitch to studios.  The rest, as they say, darlings, is history: the short they made went on to spawn seven films and create the highest grossing horror franchise of all time.  Love or hate the Saw movies, this one has earned a place in horror short history.  Enjoy!

Saw .5
