Saw X: Trailer Talk

‘Saw X’ is set between ‘Saw’ and ‘Saw II’ where John Kramer a.k.a. The Jigsaw Killer (Tobin Bell) travels to Mexico City in a desperate attempt to cure his cancer. But, upon learning that the experimental operation is a scam to target the vulnerable, he sets up a new gruesome game. 

Not only is ‘Saw’ the highest earning horror film franchise ever, it’s also my favourite film franchise. After enjoying ‘Spiral: From The Book of Saw’, I was disappointed to learn that the latest entry wouldn’t follow this film and, instead, go backwards in the timeline with some returning cast members. But, despite my scepticism, the franchise always finds a way to pull me back in. 



My main worry with ‘Saw X’ was whether there was actually a story to be told. And, while I still have the same concern, there are a few details that are worth noting that makes this entry stand out from the others. 

The first one is, of course, the traps. And these ones look the most gruesome out of the entire franchise! The two notable ones being a trap involving tubes connected to someone’s eyes and another victim being strapped into a chair, where they’ll have to perform brain surgery on themselves! But they all carry a theme of imitating surgery and that’s because the victims here are the scam doctors that tricked John Kramer. 

So, this also looks like it’ll be more of a personal story. Because of the concept, the victims involved here are personal to John Kramer so the film might be from his perspective, which is a first in the franchise. Plus, Shawnee Smith returns as apprentice Amanda Young! Due to ‘Saw X’ being set in between the first and second films, it’s assumed that this entry will finally focus on her journey into becoming Jigsaw’s apprentice.  

While I am sceptical due to the entry’s place in the timeline, I am also a huge fan of the ‘Saw’ franchise, so I’m excited for it. It seems like a more personal story as the film might come from the perspective of John Kramer himself. The traps all look unique and gruesome, and this will see the return of Amanda Young. While I would’ve liked a sequel to ‘Spiral’, it looks like the latest entry is returning to its gritty, grimy roots that the franchise is known for.
