According to the DVD commentary, casting agent Amy Lippens asked director James Wan who he wanted to play the character of Amanda. On a whim, Wan suggested Shawnee Smith, on whom he had had a crush since his teen years. He was surprised when Lippens came back a few days later and told him that they had secured her for the role.

German Collector's Edition by Kinowelt contains R-rated version (with commentary, making-of & English DTS-ES sound) and uncut version (labeled "Director's cut", with unrated music-video and a soundtrack CD). The Saw I + II steelbook edition includes what is labeled the "US director's cut" of Saw I. This version replaces the logos (new Lionsgate logo, Twisted Pictures logo instead of Evolution Management logo) at the beginning and removes some moments between Adam and Dr. Gordon at the end (ca. 33 seconds).

In Wes Craven's film "Last House on the Left" two teenage girls are kidnapped, taken into woods nearby one of them's house, and tortured literally to death. Then the killers are met by sterner justice from the parents who lived in the last house on the left. This film included disembowelment, chest carving, stabbing, choking, shooting, fist thrown...the works. And to top it all off to boot, Craven had a social commentary to add to the already intense storyline.
This film was a lot like "Last House..." with the exception of the moral at the end. this film was a plain, scare the pants off ya, turn the lights on in the middle of the night, scream out loud till ya barf twice go crazy, deadbolt your doors, pray you die early type of scare film. Two men are locked in a sewage room and must try to kill one another in order to be free. Other characters and lot twist are added along the way. But the film is executed unnervingly!
Elwes and the other dude were really great in their roles. Danny Glover, as a dried out, discharged obsessed cop was great with what little time he had on screen. The rest of the cast did their own little private parts to make it pleasant. Intense character build up creates a surrealistic atmosphere that makes the audience concentrate on exactly what is going on.. creepy stuff.
Audiences who see this will probably not be sleeping for awhile...
Don't see it alone!
