Kevin from ‘Home Alone’ Grew Up to Be the Killer from ‘Saw’

Let us examine the facts!

There is this crazy theory doing rounds about Kevin McCallister being the Jigsaw. Home Alone films by 20th Century Fox were a major blockbuster of the 90s. In the film, Kevin gets left behind while his family goes on a vacation. Two burglars take note of the fact and try to break into the house. Kevin gives them a tour of hell with his cunning defense art. But this creative skill later evolves into a murderous instinct as per a few.

Jigsaw, on the other hand, is a crooked killer who resorts to killing people as a distraction from his imminent death. Jigsaw’s name is John Kramer. He has a peculiar way of murdering his victims. The captive must play the games they are surrounded with to stay alive. He kills them if they lose.

So where is the comparison here? Let us break it down for you

Kevin does not show any signs of abnormality as a child. Granted he only harms the bandits in defense. But the fact that he enjoys watching them suffer cannot be neglected. Jigsaw’s motive is to generate newfound respect for life in the minds of his victims but he too enjoys torturing them. Would it be totally nuts to assume that Kevin lost his grip on sanity when he heard the news of his illness and brought back the sadist mentality in a more violent way?

Both Kevin and Jigsaw use similar crafts to hurt their victims. Kevin’s speciality is building elaborate traps while Jigsaw makes up complicated games. Some of Jigsaw’s games have an uncanny resemblance to Kevin’s work of art.

Not to mention the blue eyes and blonde hair and oh, the mysteriously similar jawline they share. If we assume Kevin moved to the east coast after experiencing the events of home alone and grew up there, it all adds up. He possibly assumed a new identity of John Kramer and the rest is history.

The release timing of the two movies may not favour this theory since Kevin is just a kid in home alone films and he could only grow up to be a teenager by the time saw released in theatres. But Jigsaw is a fully grown man.  Nevertheless, James Wan, the maker of Saw fully supports this theory. That could mean something.

Only if the math of the release dates could add up, we would have every possible explanation to believe that Kevin did grow up into Jigsaw.
