I have seen the first saw movie. I got part way through the second and had to walk away. The story line, however, is very thought provoking. it makes interesting points. But this movie turned me off watching any slightly scary movie for good. I can not watch anything that Congress close top getting my heart racing. They went way over board with the torture and the explicit blood and gore scenes.
I don't think they should be banned but as pp said they need their own category. There are horrors, thrillers, why not a torture category with an 18+ or even 21+. I honestly can't understand how they can justify making 7? Saw movies? My understanding is that the story line became a lost plot with so many twists and turns you were at risk of losing your head.
Jaws on the other hand, has terrified so many people and made so many people scared of going to the beach. There were scary scenes that got you on the edge of your seat. But the level of gore is nothing in comparison. You can't put that in the same category as saw.
