SAW X Trailer Sets Jigsaw Against Scammers in a Torturous Game

The game that literally no one wants to play is back once again. The Saw franchise will grow again with Saw X, a film that will continue the story of John Kramer. Tobin Bell’s creepy stare and Billy the Puppet, the creepier Jigsaw clown puppet, are both etched into many horror fans’ minds. Just when we thought we were free from watching the relentless torture of people, Saw X drops a trailer that shows John’s newfound and very personal mission.

This clip hearkens back to the early days of the franchise, including the return of Amanda. She’s unlike many final girls because, well, she becomes the killer’s ruthless apprentice. Some fans may be wondering what the hell is going on in the Saw X trailer. Well, Saw X is actually a direct sequel to Saw, even though it is the tenth film in the franchise.

Here’s a Saw X synopsis to help you better understand what’s going on with the timeline and in the above trailer. 

John Kramer (Tobin Bell) is back. The most chilling 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, John returns to his work, turning the tables on the con artists in his signature visceral way through a series of ingenious and terrifying traps. 

This synopsis and trailer for Saw X are quite interesting. Like John, I truly despise a scammer, especially when they take advantage of vulnerable people. But, unlike John, I don’t believe that torture traps are the right way to stop their schemes. Perhaps there’s something in between that doesn’t involve murder. But alas, he is psychotic, so that’s the only option for him. Saw X will hit theaters on September 29, which is just in time for the season of thrills and chills.
