Twisted Pictures is an American production company. Founded in 2004, it has produced every installment in the Saw series.


Following the box-office success of the first Saw film in 2004, Twisted Pictures was founded by the film's producers Mark Burg, Oren Koules and Gregg Hoffman as a subsidiary company of Evolution Entertainment. This led to a nine-picture distribution deal with Lions Gate Entertainment. For four years, Carl Mazzocone was the president of the company.

In June 2007, Twisted Pictures formed a joint venue with RKO Pictures to remake four films out of RKO library. These remakes included Five Come Back, I Walked with a Zombie, The Body Snatcher and Bedlam. In October 2009, Twisted Pictures successfully made a deal with Bob Kuhn and Kim Henkel, the rights-holders of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, after discussions with Platinum Dunes fell apart.

On June 28, 2012 Twisted Pictures opened a new television division called Twisted Television. Its first production was a television adaptation of Anger Management, a slapstick comedy film from 2003.
