Two guys find themselves captured in a cellar, chained to opposite walls by one of their ankles. It soon becomes appartent that someone is playing mindgames with them, using an audio tape and a cellphone to mess with their brains, but instead of trying to join up against their tormentor, the two captives are at each other's throats soon enough (figuratively speaking, their chains don't allow them to get into physical contact), and in the end throw all sorts of stuff at each other just to hurt the respective other one.

In the meantime, an army sergeant tries to solve a series of murders, which, it soon becomes apparent, were committed by the same guy who captured the two men in his basement. When the sergeant finally catches up with the culprit, a local hunter, though, he has to find out the guy is holding his sweetheart captive, which is when ... the film is over, rather inexplicably.


What sounds like a blatant rip-off of the original Saw is actually a parody of the movie ... or at least it tries to be, but fails. The reason is quite simple, if you want to effectively spoof a rather gruesome movie like Saw, you might consider taking the road of subtlety - not so Destere, a film that seems to make a point out of being blunt as can be, and thus rarely a joke in the whole film is funny, every character and every scene tries so hard to be hilarious it is almost pathetic, and the lack of topical humour (the backbone of any parody) is almost inexplicable given the film is supposed to be a parody.

Really not worth your time.
