Welcome to the 54th episode of The Cinefessions Podcast! This week, Branden, Ashe, and Marc continue the Complete Saw Series arc with a review of Saw V from 2008. There is also an update on the progress of their #CSSC5 challenges.
You can purchase the complete Blu-ray set from Amazon for $11.99 (dropped $3 since the start of this arc!), or the DVD set for $7.50! This is the easiest and cheapest way to follow along on this 7-episode arc. We highly recommend you watch the films before you listen to the podcast as there will be spoilers.
Note, again, that these episodes are filled with major spoilers, and we highly recommend that you watch the films before listening to the show if you do not want the films spoiled for you. These podcasts also contain adult language and adult content.

Branden has been a film fan since he was young, roaming the halls of Blockbuster Video, trying to find the grossest, scariest looking VHS covers to rent and watch alone in the basement. It wasn’t until recently, though, that Branden started seeking out the classics of cinema, and began to develop his true passion for the art form. Branden approaches each film with the unique perspective of having studied the art from the inside, having both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in acting. He has been a film critic since 2010, and has previously written for Inside Pulse Movies, We Love Cult, and Diehard Gamefan. His biggest achievement as a film critic, to date, has been founding Cinefessions and turning it from a personal blog to a true film website, housing hundreds of film and television reviews, and dozens of podcasts.
