Saw V (David Hackl, 2008)
Budget : $11 000 000

It is raining heavily and there is non-diegetic sound of thunder in the background
The opening shot is of a door lit up by a light and the camera slowly starts zooming in on it 
We see a sign on the door that says trespassers will be prosecuted which signifies someone who has done something wrong is going to be punished in this building
Extreme long shot of a dark room with someone tied up 
Mid shot as the camera pans over one side of the persons body and we see he has a series of tatoos on his chest
Man suddenly awakes and thre is a close up of him to show his emotion of finding himself unable to move.
Lights come on to add anchorage of the setting 
High angle of body signifies his lonliness 
A TV turns on in the corner of the room and a man wearing mask apperas. This is narrative enigma as we never see his face
He has a very deep, one toned voice which adds tension
Another light is turned on to discover an axe that will swing above his body
Close up of clock shows how long he has got until the axe his kill him
Close up of device that will cut off his hands but freen him from being killed by the  axe
Quick paced shots as the axe starts swinging above his body 
Close up of hands being crushed in device
High angle shot as the axe cuts his body in half 
Cut away shots as blood hits the walls 
Final shot is a POV shot of the victim looking at a door and there is an eye looking back at him through the hole
