Malcolm Neale? I remember that case. His wife was murdered five years ago. A home invasion. Perp slit her throat. They made him watch.
— Logan[src]

Malcolm Neale is a fictional character from the Saw franchise as well as a minor character in Jigsaw.


Early Life

Malcolm Neale was a depraved gambler. Due to his frequent bets he ended up owing someone money but never paid his debt. Therefore the person to whom Malcolm owed money killed his wife in front of him at home. Malcolm was later arrested but was helped by Detective Brad Halloran to not be sent to prison for his gambling. (Jigsaw)


Malcolm abducted by Logan Nelson

Ten years after a game created by Jigsaw, one of the test subjects in said game - Logan Nelson - decided to recreate it using criminals that were previously aided by Halloran. Malcolm and two others were chosen and abducted by Logan. (Jigsaw)


Malcolm and the other two prisoners awoke in an industrial room after their game is started by Edgar Munsen. They are pulled towards a wall of circular saws by chains around their necks. The other two prisoner pass their test by cutting themselves on the blades, but Malcolm fails. He is then mutilated by the saws and fatally half-decapitated. (Jigsaw)


After his death, Logan cuts a jigsaw piece from his neck and attaches a flash drive with the phrase "and then there were four" written on it, as a reference to the original game. Logan then hangs his body off a bridge in a park, where it is discovered the next morning. The corpse is taken to the morgue where Logan and Eleanor perform an autopsy on it. To cover up his involvement, Logan injects John Kramer's blood underneath Malcolm's fingernails to make it appear as though he is behind the new murders. (Jigsaw)


Not much can be said about Malcolm Neale's personality due to his short screen time, other than the fact that he was a depraved gambler.


  • Malcolm Neale was named after screenwriter Pete Goldfinger's late brother-in-law who passed away about the time when Jigsaw was filmed.
