Saw Director Says One Scene Is So Disturbing He Needed To Take A Shower After

Saw reboot director Twisted Pictures

Ever since we were graced with the news that Saw would be getting a reboot, horror fans have been waiting with bated breath to see whats in store for us.

With a franchise spanning eight films, youd be forgiven for wondering which direction the reboot could possibly take us in – although judging from recent comments from the films director, Darren Lynn Bousman, its going to be a creepy one.

One particular scene was so creepy, in fact, that Bousman said he felt like he had to take a shower while filming it. Which, yknow, is pretty telling.

Bousman, who also directed Saw II, Saw III, and Saw IV, took to social media last week (September 13) while editing the scene in question.

As well as saying it made him feel like he needed to take a shower, Bousman made a direct comparison to the needle pit scene in Saw II.

The director wrote:

ugh… cutting a scene right now on SAW and it makes me want to take a shower… needle pit might have some competition.

Disclaimer: I have never seen Saw II so I just googled the needle pit scene and, as Im sure you can imagine, now wish I hadnt. If you havent watched it, please heed this warning and just… dont.

For those of you who, like me, have no idea what the needle scene is, the needle pit was a trap located on the upper floor of the Nerve Gas House – one of the main locations for the Jigsaw Killers games – which was filled with over tens of thousands of filthy, used syringes.

One of the Jigsaw Killers victims (I wont tell you which one) got thrown into the pit and had to find a key, all the while getting pierced repeatedly by the used needles. How delightful.

So for Bousman to say a scene in the upcoming reboot could beat that is some going, and leads me to think Ill be steering clear from seeing it for fear that Id just be hiding behind a pillow the entire time.
