Then object is referred to the data, concept, and event. The signification is referred to the interpretation and the meaning. There are seven traps and seven torture devices in Saw 1.As a result of semiotics analysis there is one element which has same meaning in every torture device, which is the survival instinct of Jigsaw‟s victims.

It cannot be separated from the tortures happened in the past and the history of the tortures. The writer also relates the torture devices in Saw 1 to the history of tortures, Crhristian, and Islamic perspectives. Keys word: Saw1, Semiotics, Torture, Integration
