Moralist serial killer John Kramer – a.k.a Jigsaw – has been dead for a decade. However, when bodies begin to show up that bear his eerily distinctive mark, Detective Halloran (Rennie) and medical examiner Logan (Passmore) suspect that a copycat is at large. Meanwhile, five strangers awake in a remote barn and are forced to take part in a deadly game in which dark secrets are revealed.
After their friend is killed during a shop robbery, four college chums embark on a hiking holiday in rural Sweden in his memory. One of them (Spall) cannot escape his guilt, but when things start to go wrong in the wilderness, it becomes apparent that guilt is not the only thing they should be running from.

In the fall of 1988, tragedy hits close to home for Bill Denbrough (Lieberher), leaving him plagued with grief.

Along with his bumbling band of fellow pre-teen outcasts – the self-proclaimed ‘Losers’ Club’ – Bill and buds must face their worst fears in a bid to bring down the evil entity for good.
