Is there anything more terrible than a psychopath who acts because of something they believe in? Jigsaw, the heinous serial murderer, the self-appointed custodian of moral standards, and the architect of the most depraved escape rooms known to man returns in Saw X (2023), the next edition in the Saw franchise, which has been a major success. God alone knows the particular torments inflicted on Jigsaw’s newest victims, whose punishments will be calibrated to correspond with the gravity of their ethical transgressions.
In the annals of cinematic torture, the Saw franchise holds a preeminent position thanks to its legacy of ever-increasing gore and bloodshed and its ingenious and inventive torture devices that are more horrific than those of its predecessors. James Wan, a legend in the field of horror filmmaking, directed the first Saw film, which debuted in 2004, and it was in this film that the “Reverse Bear Trap” first appeared. This device consisted of a clamp that was welded inside the victim’s mouth and clamped her jaws shut. If she cannot acquire the key to the device, concealed within the stomach of her fellow inmate who is still alive, the clamp is meant to spring open, separating her jaws. In the same film, oncologist and adulterer Dr. Lawrence Gordon (Cary Elwes), who escapes from his chains by slicing off his foot in what is perhaps one of the most notoriously violent moments in the franchise, is portrayed by Cary Elwes. Let’s not get into the rest of the horrifying things that Jigsaw has created over the years since it will make your stomach turn. To say more would be superfluous, but suffice it to say that each new installment in the series has brought a new level of disgustingness and terrifying potential while retaining the ability to captivate viewers.
Once Saw X is released on October 31st, we will finally know whether fans have enough or can’t get enough of the Saw franchise. Saw movies are known for having timelines overlapping, but the timeline of Saw X is set between the first Saw movie and the second Saw movie. This brings the exciting return of Tobin Bell as John Kramer/Jigsaw and the possibility of a return to the more plausible, character-driven, grounded-but-clever storytelling that defined the first Saw movies. Saw X is scheduled to be released in 2019.

What is the Release Date of Saw X?

Who is the Director of Saw X?

What is the Plot of Saw X?
Honestly? Not very much. Although we can theorize that the film might be in some way connected to the events that take place in the original novel, the plot points themselves are still being kept under wraps. The following are all Lionsgate has revealed about the film’s official logline thus far:
“The return of Tobin Bell to the franchise furthers Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures’ goal of a film that captures everything Saw fans love about the franchise while also keeping them guessing with all-new traps and a new mystery to solve.”
In the ninth installment of the Saw film series, which was released in 2021 and was titled Spiral: From the Book of Saw, there were many more complex death traps, which this time targeted law enforcement agents because they were corrupt police officers. However, not many tears were shed. Who exactly had committed the murder was the mystery to be solved. Even if he was featured in many more films as a flashback character, the notorious Jigsaw killer could not be responsible because he was killed in the third film. Another instance of a copy–cat murderer was brought to our attention.
Emerson, played by Max Minghella, exacted his vengeance on corrupt police officers who had murdered his father after the latter decided to testify against them. At the end of the movie, he is shown to have succeeded in escaping, while the detective investigating the case, Det. Zeke Banks (Chris Rock) is left screaming and distraught. Unfortunately, we do not have any information regarding the next step of the series, but after the New Year, we hope to get both additional information and a trailer.
