Stream every film in the ‘Saw’ collection with these quick links:
The year is 2004. Facebook just launched, pleated mini skirts and Ugg boots are popular, and audiences are watching the movie Saw in theaters for the very first time. Nearly two decades later, Facebook is still the most used social media platform in the world, pleated mini skirts and Ugg boots are back in style (much to my dismay), and Saw is back in theaters with its 10th installment.
On Sept. 29, Jigsaw returned to the big screen in Saw X — a curious prequel set to take place between the original Saw and Saw II. Yes, Tobin Bell reprises his role as horror icon John Kramer and he’s joined in the cast by Shawnee Smith, Synnøve Macody Lund, Steven Brand, Michael Beach, and Renata Vaca. In what should come as no surprise, things start hopeful and lead to a twisted, gruesome torture game. The website calls it “the untold chapter of Jigsaw’s most personal game.” Mashable film critic Siddhant Adlakha calls it “the best (and only good) Saw movie since 2009.”
Considering it’s been nearly 20 years since the first film was released, you might need to revisit the earlier flicks before heading to the theaters or renting Saw X at home. Fortunately, every iteration is streaming online — but not all in one place. Here are the best ways to watch every single Saw film online — and the best deals to snag to complete your movie marathon.
What streaming service has the Saw movies?
As with most things in the streaming age, the Saw franchise is scattered across multiple streaming services. Fortunately, the majority of the films — the original through the seventh film — can all be found on one streamer. The eighth and ninth films are harder to come across. So, if you’re setting up a Saw movie marathon to prepare yourself for Saw X, you’re going to need a couple of different subscriptions. Luckily, we’ve figured out the best options for you below.
Can I watch Saw X online?
While Saw X isn’t streaming quite yet (it is still in select theaters, after all), it did get an early digital release for those hoping to watch the 10th installment at home. Currently, you can either rent the film for $19.99 or purchase it for $24.99 at digital retailers like Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV+, or Vudu. If you’re a Prime member, you can even save a few bucks and rent Saw X for only $17.74 or purchase it for $22.74.
Where to watch every Saw movie online
The free streaming service Tubi used to carry a chunk of the Saw films, but unfortunately, that’s no longer the case. There are still ways to stream some of the films for free or at least at a discount, however. Here’s a breakdown of where to watch every Saw film online, as well as the best current deals for each.
Best for long-term viewing: Peacock
Currently, seven of the ten Saw films are available to watch on Peacock Premium. Not to mention, Lionsgate has a multi-year movie output agreement with Peacock for future theatrical releases. That means, eventually, Saw X will likely find its home on Peacock as well, making it a solid long-term viewing deal. You could sign up for a monthly subscription for just $5.99/month or commit long-term and pay just $39.99 for the whole year (regularly $59.99/year) by using the code BIGTENFAN at checkout (valid at the time of writing).
Are you a student with a valid university ID? You can score a Peacock Premium student subscription for only $1.99/month for your first year. That’s a $4/month discount.
Films included: Saw, Saw II, Saw III, Saw IV, Saw V, Saw VI, Saw: The Final Chapter, and (most likely) eventually Saw X
Similarly, Starz has a more immediate output deal with Lionsgate films, meaning Saw X will probably find its first streaming home on Starz before heading over to Peacock. Starz is also home to seven of the existing saw films. The only difference is the cost. Currently, Starz is offering a $5/month for your first month. That gives you just enough time to watch all seven Saw films in its library. Unfortunately, after your first month, the cost will jump to $9.99/month, making it less attractive for long-term viewing.
Films included: Saw, Saw II, Saw III, Saw IV, Saw V, Saw VI, Saw: The Final Chapter, eventually Saw X
Best for Jigsaw: Amazon Prime Video
The eighth film in the Saw franchise, Jigsaw, is currently only available to stream on Amazon Prime Video or MGM+. It can’t ever be easy, can it? Amazon Prime Video was also home to six other Saw films, but as of Nov. 1, they’re no longer available for streaming. Fortunately, both Prime Video and MGM+ offer free trials, so you can sign up, stream Jigsaw, then cancel before incurring any charges. Prime Video offers a 30-day free trial (if you haven’t been a customer in the last 12 months) before charging $14.99/month for Prime or $8.99/month for Prime Video only. MGM+ offers a seven-day free trial before you’ll have to pay $5.99/month. In either case, be sure to cancel before your trial ends if you don’t want to pay full price.
Films included: Jigsaw
Best for Spiral: From the Book of Saw (2021): Hulu
Regardless of how you feel about Chris Rock’s Spiral: From the Book of Saw, it’s still considered part of the Saw franchise as the ninth installment. The 2021 horror flick is currently only available to watch on Hulu. The good news is Hulu offers a free 30-day trial to new and returning users, which gives you enough time to tune into Spiral and cancel before being charged the $7.99 monthly fee.
Films included: Spiral: From the Book of Saw
Other ways to watch the Saw movies online
If you only want to watch individual films in the franchise or just can’t fathom signing up for another streamer, you can also rent or purchase the films directly from digital retailers like Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV+, Vudu, and more. Generally, it costs $3.99 to rent each film and $5.99 to purchase a digital copy in UHD or 4K (if available), but Amazon Prime Video has each film available at a discounted rate if you’re a Prime member. Pro tip: Saw and Spiral are currently available to rent for free (at the time of writing) for Prime members.
Note: rentals give you 30 days to watch and 48 hours after you start the film.
