The Scott Tibbs Documentary is a pseudo-documentary set in the Saw franchise, taking place during and shortly after the events of Saw II. The documentary focuses on Scott Tibbs, a character first mentioned in the first Saw film, who decides to film a documentary about the Jigsaw Killer. It was included in the bonus material of the DVD of Saw II.


After the disappearance of Adam Stanheight, his best friend, frontman of rock band Wrath of the Gods, Scott Tibbs comes to the conclusion that he is most likely dead and suspects the serial killer Jigsaw. In order to find out more about the killer and his motives, he and his friends decide to film a documentary about him. Shortly after they start shooting, Scott is called by one of his friends and goes to the abandoned Wilson Steel Plant. Apparently, the Metropolitan Police Department had been able to capture Jigsaw. However, the latter had managed to escape and had taken a hostage, Detective Eric Matthews.

The way Jigsaw tricked the police impresses Scott to the point where he slowly develops an obsession with the killer, which encourages him to continue his research. Upon doing so, he finds out that Jigsaw is actually John Kramer, a man who decided to test other peoples' will to live by putting them in deadly traps after he had been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. To learn more about him, Scott manages to arrange interviews with a detective and a doctor. However, due to his intrusive, almost psychotic behavior, everyone refuses to give him the information he wants.

Eventually, Scott learns that Eric Matthews' son, Daniel Matthews, had been a victim of Jigsaw himself but had been released by the killer. Pretending to be his cousin, Scott goes to the hospital and tries to get an interview with Daniel. Unfortunately for him, he is interrupted by a guard who expels him from the hospital. His failings make Scott even angrier and worsen his mental state even more. Therefore, he eventually makes a fatal decision and plans to test himself in order to prove that the Jigsaw Killer is right with the things he does.

Shortly afterwards, he and his friends build a trap on their own. In order to survive, Scott has to shove his hands into a shredder, freeing them from their restraints. However, when the timer starts to count down, Scott's friends take the camera and leave the room. Scott panics and angrily yells at them. Before the timer finally goes off, his friends close the door, leading to his fate remaining unknown.

The Scott Tibbs Documentary was entirely filmed as a found footage film, using the so-called "shaky camera" technique, where parts or the entirety of a film is filmed with a hand camera. This technique is often used for pseudo-documentaries, especially in the horror genre, to give the movie a more realistic style. Throughout the film, Leigh Whannell and Shawnee Smith both have a cameo appearance, reprising their roles as Adam Stanheight and Amanda Young from the first film. However, the documentary itself is non-canon to the events shown in the movies themselves.
