SAW X trailer – Tobin Bell is back as Jigsaw for the sequel/prequel set partly in Mexico

In this day and age where everything that was old is now new again, horror is thriving. The HALLOWEEN franchise was rebooted with a new sequel trilogy, and THE EXORCIST has new sequels on the way. While the SAW franchise wasn’t exactly dead, with same universe sequels like SPIRAL and JIGSAW, Lionsgate has decided to officially bring the series back the way the fans want with SAW X, even showing us the return of John Kramer (Tobin Bell). The story in SAW X is actually a prequel that takes place between SAW I and SAW III, and involves Kramer going to Mexico for an experimental procedure to remove his cancerous tumor… only it turns out the doctors are fakes, and the whole operation was a lie. Not wise to screw over John, as these folks are about the find out. In addition to Tobin Bell, this latest installment also stars Synnøve Macody Lund, Steven Brand, Michael Beach, and Renata Vaca… and we see a very brief glimpse of Shawnee Smith back as Amanda, which would make sense for the time period as she would have been working for John then. Directed by Kevin Greutert, this entry is written by Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger. Take a look at the trailer and tell us your thoughts in the comments.

John Kramer (Tobin Bell) is back. The most disturbing installment of the SAW franchise yet explores the untold chapter of Jigsaw’s most personal game. Set between the events of SAW I and II, a sick and desperate John travels to Mexico for a risky and experimental medical procedure in hopes of a miracle cure for his cancer – only to discover the entire operation is a scam to defraud the most vulnerable. Armed with a newfound purpose, the infamous serial killer returns to his work, turning the tables on the con artists in his signature visceral way through devious, deranged, and ingenious traps.

SAW X opens September 29, 2023
