Do you think you could SURVIVE a Saw movie? It seems like a logical question to have after witnessing the horror Jigsaw brings to people who are, arguably, just like us. Well Theorists, your buddy MatPat is here to help you do just that. This is not your average "how to beat every trap in Saw" kind of video. I am going to teach you the TRUE way to not die in a Saw movie. That's a good deed worthy of keeping me off Jigsaw's radar, right? Right?!

  • Noooooooooooooooooooo

  • I see. I never watched any of the movies. I don't think I'd ever want to. 😰 Once again, you're using cheap Animations as usual.

  • The pendulum trap was setup by the PHONY Jigsaw....

  • one lady got burned alive bc her husband lied, and she found out like 3 seconds before being cooked

  • Dear Matpat, I hope this finds you in good health How come Barry Allen wears a special suit so his clothes don't fly off but when he carries someone to safety their clothes are perfectly fine

  • listen the most unrealistic part of saw is the players having a will to live that powerful

  • Saw is like the TVA

  • Tbh Captain America could probably just hold the reverse bear trap open with his super strength and take it off or destroy it.

  • The funny thing is , if you watch Mad Max 1, the entire idea for saw is in the ending scene when max hand cuff a criminal to a burn car, leaves him a saw and tells him " you got 10 mins till the car blows, you can try to cut the chain but it wont work...." thus the criminal only option was to either cut off his foot meaning he would die regardless of the option...

  • im agiragfefe

  • God now that I think about it, this jigsaw guy is horribly corrupt

  • me: *watching this video* jigsaw: No no

  • Wait one of the victims was chosen because they were suicidal? Man that’s not horror, that’s just sad. What terrible way to bring depression and suicide to the public eye.

  • To be fair if you're in the environment and suspense and quick death, logic goes out the window and if you had logic it'd be easier to escape.

  • Where'd the into music go?

  • this video was pointless from the beginging because he would NEVER use the same trap twice

  • Like or hate the Saw franchise, a lot of the mechanisms used as traps ACTUALLY functioned. Also, the first time a character dies on camera being crushed between two walls. Also, the first Saw is an actual masterpiece. No one can change my mind

  • 4:23 It just gave me Gordon Ramsey vibes

  • Is saw/jigsaw real??? #iman8yroldwhogotscared

  • 5:34 well, looks like mostly everyone will die for being in a 1.5 year lock down (depressed)

  • Number VIII Dont make a video about surviving saw

  • Is Kevin from home alone the kid version of the jigsaw killer

  • Jigsaw just wants to play a board game or a video game with you

  • Congratulations on 10millon sub

  • i would talk to saw and have a full on therapy session with him. like i never seen the series cause i'm a wimp, but i loooove talking. and i'm going to study therapy, either way

  • Saw would put me in a trap because of the fidget spinner I shoplifted 3 years ago

  • Ok who else got jump-scared by Shrek at 1:19

  • Just don't get jigsaws attention

  • I just realized your character’s image in this episode was wearing Absolute Pixel mercy. Nice 👍

  • Purple guy “Dang this guy is good!”

  • People who saw saw Ryan George reference?😂😂

  • What if we do the same to him, IF HE APPRICIATE LIFE THEN *PROVE IT* he needs a lot lessons

  • Day 2 of asking for a 21 Pilots Film Theory episode

  • You should just take normal pills

  • Also, I like the sea of thieves-red dead hoodie

  • done ive been subbed sir UwU

  • Anyone: **breathes** Jigsaw and his pig mask cult: *Allow us to introduce ourselves*

  • The one way I would survive saw is by not being a jerk

  • 12:26 Speedrunning Saw with a Flat screen tv.

  • Better idea move far from america

  • Well ima die cause I’m in a tattletale group at school😰😱

  • Is that a Sea of thieves shirt I see on survivy patty?

  • Stay alseep 😂


  • 7:03 when he said do it got cut out and an ad was played jigsaw was probably like no you don’t get to live

  • I love spiral but I hate the ending

  • Too many saws

  • I saw a saw saw sawing sauce.

  • You know I "saw" that coming

  • Just subbed to Shudder to check out Creepshow. First episode: STARRING TOBIN BELL And Gus Fring from Breaking Bad - this is great!

  • Easy Be the cameraman

  • tell me that matpat did not just call Jodie Whittaker a bad doctor

  • Can you become jigsaws aprentice to not be selected?

  • I saw saw and got traumatized by the saw because it was sawing

  • Day 1 of asking for a 21 Pilots Film Theory episode

  • Sea of thieves shirt?

    • I love sea of thieves


  • Jesus Loves all of you guys



  • i have own tactics but this is cool too ! :D

  • i love this horor !!!!!!! i love horor movies !!!

  • Mat pat could u make a video on how evil Bart Simpson really is

  • My grandpas/grandmas last name is Kramer..

  • 5:32 Emely be like: Aw come on now

  • Nah, ill just wait impatiently for the trap to set off

  • I clicked on the scary hashtag and I was not disappointed

  • Mat pat :how do you avoid death,well Random ad: program beyond exceptional Me:......................well I'm screwed 🙃

  • ... wow i hit the subscribe button and now i am unsubscribed ... what should i do now!?


  • Yo hold up I just caught that doctor who joke... you right, matt smith was the best, everyone after him sucked

  • it's amazing how people who want to die but don't want to die in a scary situation

  • how did the dude that was locked away cheat the entire point of his games was for them to survive so why did the dude get punished for being so grateful to live that he found another way to survive. i only heard the cheat thing from somebody else so he was punished.

  • Anyone going to point out that he is wearing a sea of thieves hoodie at 3:24

  • The fact that film theory is currently at 9.99 million subs hurts my perfectionist self

  • Mat pat being a heathers fan is the crossover I didn’t know I needed

  • How to survive saw traps… Don’t get picked in the first place… How to not get picked in the first place… Just don’t live in America, at least statistically

  • Cinema Summary : m y j o b.

  • “HACK the game in advance.” Hehehehe *hack*

  • He need to do the new conjuring


  • 12:50 *Generous Donors*

  • Why would make a 15 and a half minute video just to show us how to survive a non existent character's diabolical traps? Unless of course...

  • Person: *Exists** Saw: _"So, you've chosen death..."_

  • I haven’t even watched the movie

  • You know I wouldn't be surprised if there was a secret dark storyline hidden across videos from all matpat's channels

  • Italiani mette like al commento

  • Is this child friendly ?

  • Hi

  • Imagine Deadpool in saw 😂

  • Lobber lava fucin punz

  • Imagine a Saw movie, where every serial killer is there. Who do you think would win the games?

  • The omniscient viscose splenomegaly unite because accountant unknowingly improve throughout a cooing pants. pumped, righteous potato

  • Why are the saw rotten tomatoes that bad? They are good movies

  • “How to survive saw” Just live in a different country

  • I think that you should do a Film Theory about the death of the late singer Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes of TLC.

  • Maybe that’s what happed to Mrs. Afton
