    • This is only partially right. They made a short film with the premise of saw, and it got picked up by a studio and made into a full blown movie.

    • Actually if y’all wanna hear something interesting there is a film that ACTUALLY takes place in only one room it’s a really old film from Alfred Hitchcock where a man is paralyzed in his apartment and watches his neighbors intensely when a sudden turn of events happen

    • Kinda. They shot a short film to show to the studio as a pitch. After they got the go ahead, they had a full studio budget.

    • The original proof of concept, took place almost entirely in one room. (Saw 0.5) once it was picked up it became Saw which has other characters and plots which are set outside the bathroom

    • For those who are confused: their original student film project was only in the one room. Then, when it got picked up by a studio, they had an actual budget and could make an actual movie

    • Bruuuuh this movie made me not sleep in my bed for a month. I sat in my doorway watching the hall and my window untill i fell asleep every night. I was 8 and no other film had the same effect, but they're on another level, and the whole series had so much story for a "slasher" it's amazing.

    • Fun fact: with the exception of 2 scenes, almost all scenes in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory took place in the same one room Factory. Once you realize this and watch the movie again it’s kinda crazy to notice how there is the same pipes in the background of each scene
