The Venus Fly Trap (Saw II)
THE VENUS FLY TRAP
(SAW II)

TRAP DESCRIPTION:
This trap was similar to an iron maiden device, but on a much smaller scale. The trap consisted of a harness, attached to the victim's chest, which was only removable if the key to the padlock was obtained. Attached to the harness was a contraption which consisted of two metal masks, opposite from each other and angled down from the victim's head.Each mask had several nails protruding inwards from the interior. The device was connected to a spring timer, and if it wasn't removed in time, the two masks would clamp together on the victim's head, in a similar fashion to that of a Venus Flytrap, and drive the nails through his skull. The victim of this trap was Michael Marks, a police informant. He woke up in an empty room, and found himself in the helmet. In order to remove the device, Michael was instructed that he would have to find the key to the harness, which he soon learned, from a video tape and some X-rays of his own skull, was hidden behind his right eye. Supplied with a scalpel, he attempted to surgically remove his eye, but found that he couldn't himself to do it, and threw the scalpel across the room in anger. The timer expired, and the masks snapped shut on his head, killing him.

JIGSAW'S TAPE INSTRUCTIONS:
"Hello, Michael. I want to play a game. So far in what could loosely be called your life, you've made a living watching others. Society would call you an informant, a rat, a snitch. I call you unworthy of the body you possess, of the life you've been given. Now we will see if you are willing to look inward, rather than outward, to give up on the one thing you rely on in order to go on living. The device around your neck is a death mask. The mask is on a spring timer. If you do not locate the key in time, the mask will close. Think of it like a Venus Flytrap. What you are looking at right now is your own body, not more than two hours ago. Don't worry, you're sound asleep and can't feel a thing. Taking into account that you are at a great disadvantage here, I am going to give you a hint as to where I've hidden the key. So listen carefully, the hint is this: it's right before your eyes. How much blood will you shed to stay alive, Michael? Live or die, make your choice."

For the last time this 2011 before JR lists the 25 Celebrities of the Year 2011 list, JR lists the 12 Most Powerful, Most Influential, Most Popular and Most Controversial Celebrities for the past month.

With Angel Locsin dropping off the list and Anne Curtis still at number two, Manny Pacquiao moves up to Rank #1 making his record for "Pinoy Celebrity with Most Peak Ranks at Number 1" stronger and more undefeatable. Manny Pacquiao became a trend lately after a lot of his fans are showing their support through social media for his upcoming fight against Juan Manuel Marquez. Very close is the Pinoy Queen of All Social Media - Anne Curtis. With a staggering 1.8 million Twitter followers, Anne Curtis is still the World's Most Followed Filipino. Individuals who remained in the list are Kiefer Ravena (#11),  Richard Gutierrez (#7), and Cristine Reyes (#4). Vice Ganda moves from #3 down to #12. His newest movie, Praybeyt Benjiman, did not hit a trend in the internet and the press. Newbies to the list are Nico Salva who earned the title of MVP in the recently concluded UAAP and Christian Bautista who is earning popularity from the tv series Kitchen Musicial. Two of this month's most notable drop-offs are Angel Locsin who was previously ranked #1 and AJ Perez who was listed in all of the previous Pinoy celebrity lists this 2011... With all these updates, let's see what's up with the Pinoy Celebrities list.
