I do like the first film, but I doubt I’ll upgrade to UHD, unless I see it selling for REAL cheap in a store.

I’ll upgrade for sure! The first one is legitimately a great little horror/thriller. The sequels have a soapy charm to them too, but I thought the “final” film (part 7) was awful, the soft reboot (part 8) was a welcome trip back down jigsaw lane. I’m hopeful Chris Rock’s new take can be something different and interesting.

I’ll never forget sitting in the theater way back then, when the twist was revealed. One of the most shocking endings ever.

Unfortunately, the endless sequels dragged the original down into the horror movie ghetto in the eyes of many people. Just like Halloween or A Nightmare On Elm Street, the original is an excellent little movie but all of the sequels (some of which I like from all of those series) took some of the originals' luster away.

Very true. They are typical not-as-good-as-the-first horror franchise type sequels. But I couldn’t help looking forward to the next on every October for years on end. There was amazingly good continuity throughout the films, and it all felt very organic and believable with every new story development and connections they concocted. And I don’t believe they had to replace a single actor; every recurring character (and there were a LOT) were reprised by the same performer. At least, as far as I can remember.

Sometimes calling back to two or three films prior. I also loved how they linked them all together with a mostly coherent serialized plot.

Horror films seem to sell well on 4K UHD and Saw has never had a decent transfer on blu-ray. It was one of the very first blu-ray releases, in 2006, and looked terrible, like an upconverted DVD. I only ever bothered to see the first instalment - it has a good script and was original. Another classic horror film from about the same time, that would benefit enormously from a 4K scan and a 4K UHD is The Descent.
