Circ saws on film
A spin through some of the tool’s more startling scenes
With the arrival of fall, thoughts turn to Halloween and the macabre. Here are a few films that have scenes with circular saws or their blades.

Saw III (2006)
Something is wrong when forgiveness is followed by a circ saw to the throat.
Before Schwarzenegger became governor of California, he played a character who could heave circ-saw blades like deadly Frisbees.
A sentient pulse of electricity starts a circ saw and uses the spinning blade to launch a bolt at a man’s head. Oh, come on!
