Does the Saw series take place in New Jersey?

Postby evanmav » November 20th, 2017, 6:02 am

I was thinking about this for the longest time....where does the series take place? I believe people thought possibly Detroit and then one time they were auctioning off props from the film and it was a NJ license plate, but that was hardly confirmation.

Then Jigsaw I feel like kinda confirms it because in the movie the game takes place on Jill's farm in Pennsylvania, but you can see during one of the scenes that the license plates are in the front of the car, Pennsylvania does not require license plates in the front, NJ and NY do. Plus in the flashback scene of Ryan I swear the license plate looks just like a NJ one.

Is there any confirmation of this, or am I just going crazy? I just think it would be cool if it took place in NJ cause I'm from there.

I always assumed the series took place north east. This movie pretty much confirmed it. But if like them to not specify. As it may just be a "gotham" or "metroilos" type city in America like in the DC movies

I heard that Keith said "Then Logan moved to Seatle"?

I always thought they kept it vague on purpose. Where's Springfield and all that.
So far I have met:: Costas Mandylor, Tobin Bell, Julie Benz, J. LaRose, Darren Lynn Bousman, Michael Emerson, Danny Glover

I always figured it to be Los Angeles, as Adam's ID on the website for the first Saw listed it as his residence. Screenshots of it might still exist somewhere.

I don't really think we can take a prop at face value either, though. There are casefiles from the Hannibal television series that give Lecter's birthdate as 1944. Not to mention the same ID card also gets Adam's height wrong and puts him in his late 30s, which Leigh clearly wasn't.

Personally, I do think it takes place on the east coast as well, but can't say where for sure.

I think Hoffman's car plate says New Jersey, if you watch Saw 5. I have to see it again, but I'm pretty sure some people may confirm that.
