Notes & Trivia Edit

  • John Kramer is unique from other cinematic killers in that he does not actually commit murders himself. At best, he may be considered a serial kidnapper, who places people in situations where there is a strong likelihood that they will kill themselves through self mutilation.
  • John's first name was revealed in an early flashback scene in Saw where he is seen as a random patient of Doctor Lawrence Gordon. His surname is revealed in the first sequel Saw II.
