Tobin Bell’s John Kramer has had a rough go at life in the Saw universe. First, his wife loses her child to drug addicts he was trying to save, then he gets cancer, and then a doctor irresponsibly switches his X-rays, and now in Saw X, he gets scammed trying to get an experimental surgery in Mexico. Bummer.
But if you had to choose anyone to teach you the value of life and that actions have consequences, there’s no better man than the original Jigsaw Killer himself, who returns for the franchise’s tenth installment. Saw X is technically the eighth mainline Saw film having been preceded by a soft reboot (Jigsaw) and a fever dream spinoff led by Chris Rock.
Disregarding the spiraling continuity of these films, Saw X will be set in between Saw and Saw II, making it TWICE now that John Kramer has been scammed trying to get experimental surgery in a foreign country. Bell, who is in his 80s, looks to be in true form with this one, reminding fans why they loved these films in the first place.
Saw X will hit theaters on September 29.
