Saw V and the Dangerous Soup

Postby VaCcAr0 » April 16th, 2018, 1:54 am

So I was watching an episode of Are You Afraid of the Dark? called "The Tale of the Dangerous Soup" and I noticed some similarities between this episode and Saw V.

You can see the episode for yourself here. But in summary, there is this chef who makes a very delicious soup for $100 a bowl. The secret ingredient is fear. He puts people in a room and a demon statue comes out and turns into whatever the victim is afraid of (kind of like a boggart in Harry Potter or like Pennywise the Dancing Clown). He puts a loud waitress in the room and next thing we know, we see a pendulum blade swinging down (like Seth Baxter's trap). Then the hostess of the restaurant goes in there and she is claustrophobic so the walls start closing in on her. This is just like what happened to Peter Strahm at the end of Saw V.

So this episode has similarities to both the first and the last traps we see in Saw V. Now the next time I watch Saw V I will be thinking back to this episode. Hoffman is like Dr. Vink while Seth and Strahm are the waitress and hostess respectively.
Perhaps by the time they started making Saw V they started running out of ideas so they borrowed a couple from this episode.

That sounds like nightmare fuel. That had better be some damned magical soup!
