Day 18 of my Horror Film Marathon

Saw II (2005)
Detective Eric Mathews, played by Donnie Wahlberg, is summoned to a horrific crime scene which is the work of the serial killer Jigsaw. Mathews then finds out that his son has been captured and is in a room with 7 other people all inhaling a deadly nerve gas. Like the first Saw, the story is intricate and there are many surprises. Strangest scene: Amanda, a returning character from the first film, gets pushed into a pit filled with bloody syringes, to search for a key. Not quite as good as Saw I, but definitely a good sequel.
Interesting trivia from IMDB:
1. It took four days for four people to replace all of the needle tips with fiber tips for the syringe scene.
2. The entire movie was filmed in one building.
