  1. Are you seriously still saying that Saw 2 lady was top ten dumbest? She’s drugged. The cure it right there. She’s incoherent. Stop digging at her when you might just do the same think in that situation. Only reason you don’t? This movie served you as a tale of warning.

    • gamelvr1 it’s a fucking horror movie. How many times are there plot holes? Wait. Better question: how many people dive that deep into trying to prove somebody wrong over a horror movie? Have a nap and some time unplugged from the world. You’re taking this way to literal and serious. Also, you used the word ‘literally,” so I can only assume you’re a child or a middle-schooler. Get some rest. Do your homework. Just go away.

    • @IPEC4C There is nothing to support your theory (not a fact like you’re claiming). Remember in a whole house of people nobody was affected in the way you’re claiming

  2. As soon as you showed Cabin In The Woods, lol I think Marty is quite smart for telling Dana to not say the Latin words. And yeah, it is stupid to it out loud if you don’t even know what it means.

  3. To Millburn’s credit, in the deleted scenes they had come across the snake things before. And they hadn’t attacked… but yeah, think everyone I know was like “Why?”
