I watched the first 3 or 4 Saws but gave it up after that. I kinda want to watch this one, but if anyone has seen it, do I need to have watched the last couple of movies to understand it? Which one(s) would I probably need to rewatch to get a refresher on what's going on?

List of saw movies:

Saw
Saw II
Saw III
Saw IV
Saw V
Saw VI
Saw 3D
Jigsaw
Spiral

I just read the plot on Wikipedia and I don’t think you need to watch any of them. Although you could also watch any of them if you prefer and I think you would be just as entertained. They’re all basically the same stories with slight variations.

It was my understanding this would be more like a detective crime reboot. If so I would be interested. Provided it doesn't suck.

You didn’t need to watch any of the previous ones to follow this one.

It was horrible though.

Watched it. Garbage tier. Same formula as previous Saw movies, and it was bad for a Saw movie, so I think everyone can do the math here. Horrible acting all around, you can se the twist coming from 10 miles away. Stay away.
