Saw X: Everything You Need to Know


  • Saw X is the latest installment in the iconic Saw franchise, serving as a prequel to Saw II, and features both returning and new cast members.
  • The film’s success is credited to the producers’ decision to give fans exactly what they wanted, including beloved characters like Billy the Puppet and John Kramer.
  • With its nostalgic elements, focus on Kramer, and intriguing post-credits scene, Saw X hints at a continuation of the franchise, with an eleventh film already confirmed for 2024.

Released in theaters on September 29, 2023, Saw X is the newest addition to the horror franchise, serving as a prequel to Saw II. The film brings back Tobin Bell as John Kramer, along with Shawnee Smith and Costas Mandylor reprising their roles as Amanda Young and Detective Hoffman, respectively. Additionally, Saw X introduces new cast members including Synnøve Macody Lund, Steven Brand, Renata Vaca, Joshua Okamoto, Octavio Hinojosa, and Paulette Hernandez.

This latest installment has already achieved significant success at the global box office and has garnered positive reviews from both critics and audiences. While Saw X is directed by Kevin Greutert, it is worth mentioning that Darren Lynn Bousman, the director of Saw II, Saw III, Saw IV, and the Chris Rock-led spinoff Spiral: From the Book of Saw, shared his thoughts on the producers’ approach to the film during an interview with Screen Rant. Here is what he had to say:

Darren Lynn Bousman: They did something very smart, which was they gave fans what they wanted. Not what they thought they wanted—what the fans were demanding. The fans know what they like. They like Billy, they like John Kramer, they like Amanda, and they like Costas Mandylor. That’s what they want to see. I think Saw X was a love letter from the producers to the fans. “Hey, everything that you wanted to see, here it is.”

How Future Movies Can Build On Saw X’s Success

As Bousman mentioned, the success of Saw X can be attributed to its return to the franchise’s roots and its commitment to listening to long-time fans. One of the most recognizable aspects of the Saw films is Billy the Puppet, with his eerie appearance and tricycle creating a uniquely unsettling image. In Saw X, Billy is prominently featured as he personally confronts Jigsaw’s new victims, deviating from the usual pre-recorded video messages.

In addition, Amanda Young became a fan-favorite character in the first three Saw films, particularly due to her unexpected response to the reverse bear trap. Although it would be expected for her to resent Kramer for his cruel methods, Amanda idolizes him for helping her overcome her struggles. The bond between Amanda and Kramer is explored in Saw III, but Saw X further delves into their relationship, emphasizing Kramer’s paternal love for his protégée. Furthermore, the post-credits scene offers an exciting team-up between Kramer and Detective Hoffman, who has been working undercover for Jigsaw since the early films, pleasing fans in yet another way.

By incorporating nostalgic elements, assembling a talented cast, and centering the story on John Kramer, Saw X fulfills the desires of dedicated viewers. Lionsgate has already confirmed the release of an eleventh film, scheduled for September 27, 2024. The success of Saw XI will likely hinge on its placement within the franchise’s timeline, as Saw X indisputably establishes Kramer as the heart and soul of the series. While it could serve as another prequel, there is also the possibility of exploring the franchise’s storyline long after Kramer’s demise.

Saw X is the tenth installment in the long-running Saw franchise, featuring Tobin Bell reprising his role as the iconic Jigsaw. The story takes place between the events of the first two Saw movies and follows John Kramer as he travels to Mexico for an experimental medical procedure to treat his cancer. Upon discovering that the “doctors” are actually con artists, Kramer resorts to his infamous traps to teach them a deadly lesson.
