Saw Producers maintain original bathroom set thanks to attentive fans

  • The original bathroom set from Saw has been preserved for future movies
  • Fans’ attention to detail is a main reason for keeping the set intact
  • The creative team behind the franchise has ideas for the next film, focusing on John Kramer’s story

Director Kevin Greutert shared that the iconic bathroom set from the Saw franchise has been preserved for use in future movies, due to the keen observations of fans. The set, which served as the shocking twist location in the original 2004 horror film directed by James Wan, has appeared in various installments, including the latest Saw X.

Greutert told The Hollywood Reporter:

“Every time we return to that location, the fans have an incredible eye for the details that they expect. In fact, we never tore down the set that we built for this movie. It’s still sitting in the abandoned factory where we shot the film. If they want to go back to it, it needs to be available because it’s just so much work to recreate it.”

Keeping the original bathroom set intact saves time and effort that would otherwise be spent on recreating it for new installments. Although no official plans have been announced for the next Saw film, the creative team has ideas and plans to focus on the story of John Kramer, the Jigsaw killer. Saw X is currently playing in theaters.
