Saw II ★★ 2005 (R)

Since the sequel is just more of the same, if you liked the first one, you'll find this outing equally sadistic, disgusting, and enjoyable. Sicko Jigsaw (Bell) has trapped eight victims in a house with a number of booby traps that will force them to play his lifeordeath games. One victim is the teenaged son (Knudsen) of the detective (Wahlberg) who has captured the madman. Of course, the groundwork is laid for more sequels. 93m/C DVD, Bluray Disc, UMD .
