Did you know? On January 25, 2010, news hit that director David Hackl had officially been let go from the film. His replacement was to be series veteran Kevin Greutert, who directed Saw VI and served as editor for Saw, Saw II, Saw III, Saw IV, and Saw V. This move was due to the fact that Greutert had signed to direct Saw VII's main competition, Paranormal Activity 2, which was to be released on the same day. Fearing low box office grosses, Lionsgate enforced Greutert's contractual obligation to the franchise. Read More

Filming Locations:
Hoffman's stitches disappear as the movie goes on. This is due to the fact that the events of Saw 3D take place 2 months after the end of Saw VI, and flashes back a couple of times at the beginning of the film to establish continuity.

After Bobby has extracted his teeth to obtain the code for the door, the numbers are seen etched on the roots of the teeth. It would be impossible to do so without first cutting open the gums.

Factual Mistake
In the garage scene with Evan in the Car, we can clearly see that the arms that are about to be ripped out from the chained guy, are in fact already "ripped out" and just hang there waiting to be dragged by the car.

After Detective Hoffman gets stabbed in the neck by Jill Tuck he chases her into the next room where she is hiding. Then his neck shows no signs of being stabbed, no blood, no holes.

Factual Mistake
When Hoffman inserts the metal rod in Jill's mouth through the front of the reverse bear trap he then tightens three bolts with a spanner. However it is clear that only one rod is in place. When the device then snaps open we see a total of 9 rods on Jill's upper and lower jaws.

When Gibson is searching for Hoffman, Gibson and the SWAT team have their guns drawn, but in the next scene Gibson cycles the slide to put a bullet in the chamber, no cop would unload their gun and then load it again while searching for a criminal.

When Bobby finds a copy of his autobiography during his test there is gold writing on the front of the book. In a flashback we see John Kramer at his book signing and John removes the dust jacket to reveal a completely black cover with no lettering at all.

Audio/Video Mismatch
In the scene where Hoffman is burning the Jigsaw evidence, you hear the click of the lighter as he opens it, he then drops the lighter into the gasoline on the ground, however you also hear the lighter closing again, though the lighter clearly never got into Hoffman's hands again.

In the flashback that shows Dr. Gordon writing the "I know who you are" note to Hoffman, the handwriting is clearly different when Gordon is shown writing it and when Hoffman is shown reading it.

When Bobby is trying to save Kara, he receives 3 sets of punctures in his sides. Later when he is trying to save his wife by crawling up the chains, the puncture marks disappear and then reappear.

When Hoffman finally reaches Jill at the police department, he shoots a man in the head. You can clearly see the brains in the bars come and go as he enters the cell.
In Jill's dream sequence, Hoffman says to her "You know the only thing wrong with killing you, Jill? I only get to do it once." Including the dream sequence, we see Jill killed twice in the film (go-kart spear trap and reverse bear trap).

Highest body count of any Saw film with 27 (not counting Hoffman).

It was revealed in the commentary track by the writers that the two additional people with Dr. Gordon at the end were Brad and Ryan from the opening trap.

In early 2009, producers viewed the original Saw film converted to 3D. They were so impressed, the possibility of a seventh installment in 3D became an instant guarantee.

Had the longest pre-production schedule of any Saw film. The complexity of the 3D process inflated the usual 9 week prep into 21 weeks.

On January 25, 2010, news hit that director David Hackl had officially been let go from the film. His replacement was to be series veteran Kevin Greutert, who directed Saw VI and served as editor for Saw, Saw II, Saw III, Saw IV, and Saw V. This move was due to the fact that Greutert had signed to direct Saw VII's main competition, Paranormal Activity 2, which was to be released on the same day. Fearing low box office grosses, Lionsgate enforced Greutert's contractual obligation to the franchise.

Kevin Greutert arrived in Toronto on January 28, 2010, to read the script and visit the set. He began work on the film the very next day.

Kevin Greutert, along with writers Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, attempted a comprehensive rewrite of the script a week before filming.

During the final week of prep, Tobin Bell worked with the writers to hone his character.

Patrick Melton revealed that he and Marcus Dunstan were crafting this film to be the last in the series.

On the second day of filming, Kevin Greutert developed a severe cold and lost his voice for a few days.

Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan stayed on set to help Kevin Greutert implement his vision into the script.

Brian Gedge was the camera operator for previous Saw films. He took over the cinematography when David A. Armstrong decided not to return.

For the first time in Saw history, the crew left the soundstage and filmed a trap scene outdoors on Sunday, March 28, 2010. The last day of filming included another rare outdoor shoot.

Betsy Russell wrapped filming on April 8, 2010.

Due to the slow 3D process, filming was completed in 9 weeks as opposed to the usual 6 weeks for previous installments.

The return of Cary Elwes as Dr. Lawrence Gordon was leaked on the Internet via a Lionsgate Publicity fact sheet on April 24, 2010.

Writer Patrick Melton leaked during an interview posted during filming that Saw VII has the most returning characters, including Dr. Gordon, in the entire franchise.

Producers viewed the first cut of the film on May 22, 2010.

Gabby West won her role in this film through Scream Queens, just like Tanedra Howard did in Saw VI.

The scene involving the department store window trap near the beginning of the film required 400 extras.

The first eight minutes of the film were screened for a few fans and members of the press at the 2010 San Diego Comic Con.

Tobin Bell has played the Jigsaw killer nine times; seven times on film, and twice as the voice of the character for the "Saw" video games.

The only "Saw" film to have a budget over US$11 million dollars. Saw 3D had a budget of about US$17 million, due to the complexity of shooting in 3D

The garage trap was written for an earlier film in the series, but the producers felt it was "too disturbing" to show in a film. For an unknown reason they finally allowed it to be filmed.

Had to be submitted six times to obtain an "R" rating from the Major Motion Picture Association of America, to avoid an NC-17 rating.

Chester Bennington (lead singer of Linkin Park) consulted with an acting coach for his role in the film.

'Devin Bostick' (Brent from _'Saw VI'_) was offered the chance to reprise his role, but had to turn it down due to scheduling conflicts.

At the 2010 San Diego Comic Con the film was referred to as "Saw 3D The Traps Come Alive" at a press conference, and many tabloid's reported this was the movies official title. The next day the producers confirmed the movie's title was simply "Saw 3D" and "The traps come alive" was only a tagline.

The first "Saw" sequel to not have a roman numeral in its title.

Near the end of the film, right after Hoffman destroys his hideout, there is a crate in the background with "CWD 5" on it. This is a prop from the 5th season of Canada's Worst Driver, filmed at CFB Borden, Ontario.

Originally intended by the writers to be 2 movies, Saw: The Final Chapter: Parts 1 & 2 with Cary Elwes' return being the big finale of Part 1 and then Chapter 2 would tie everything up. After 'Saw VI' didn't do well at the box office LionsGate decided that the 2 parts would be turned into a single film. It has been hinted at by the producers and writers that lost elements from the original 2 part script will be used in future sequels or prequels whenever LionsGate decides to revive the franchise.

It has been revealed by LionsGate and the producers and writers that although this is the end of the Saw franchise for now more movies are planned for the future, although it may be several years before a new one comes out.

The last movie in the series.

This is the only movie in the franchise in which a trap occurs outside, in broad daylight.

Despite receiving top billing and portraying the main villain, Tobin Bell only has roughly three minutes of screen time in this film.

This movie has 11 traps, the most in the entire franchise.

The "reverse bear trap" has been seen in several of the Saw films, but this is the first time it is finally used to kill a victim in the entire series.

The movie ends exactly the same way the first film does, but instead Dr. Gordon is the one to lock away Hoffman in the bathroom, with the final lines being "Game Over"
