Saw (horror movie series)
Saw, for those who don’t know. is about a serial killer who puts people he feels do not appreciate life in life threatening situations in order to teach them to appreciate life.
Jigsaw, the killer, traps a man behind a mesh of barbed wire. The man has to crawl through the barbed wire to get to the door and out of the room before a timer runs out. If he doesn’t make it in time, the door will close and the man will be left to starve to death. There is no scene of SI - the guy dives into the barbed wire but… I’m submitting this for possible inclusion because the “crime” Jigsaw has convicted the guy of is that the man is a self-injurer.
The Amanda Young character is also a self-injurer but doesn’t SI in this film.
Saw II (2005)
My memory is shot, but I think I remember Amanda Young cutting her arms in front of Jigsaw as part of the preparations for the poisoned house trap.
Saw III (2006)
Jigsaw’s apprentice, Amanda Young, is shown cutting her thighs and crying because Jigsaw is slowly dying from a terminal disease.
Saw V (2008)
The man forced to crawl through barbed wire in the first film is shown in a flashback. He’s in his car crying and drinking. He breaks a beer bottle and prepares to attack his arms with it when he’s interrupted - no onscreen cutting; a car rear ends him. He gets out of his car to confront the other driver not knowing it’s a trap, is captured by Jigsaw, and put into the trap he’s seen in in the first movie.
