“It was our desire to make a film that feels more like the early Saw movies.” Lionsgate has debuted a new behind-the-scenes featurette for Saw X, the next sequel in the seemingly never-ending Saw franchise of gruesome, gory, horror movies. The first trailer arrived during the summer, and the film is ready to open in theaters very soon – just in time for spooky season. Set between the events of Saw I + II, Jigsaw travels to Mexico in hopes of trying an experimental procedure that may cure him. He later discovers that it was all just a hoax, leading him to arrange another elaborately grotesque series of fatal games for the scammers. 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 with deranged, and ingenious, traps. In addition to Bell, this also stars Shawnee Smith, Synnøve Macody Lund, Steven Brand, Michael Beach, & Renata Vaca. This new video has director Kevin Greutert and producers Mark Burg & Oren Koules talking about how they wanted this to be a “for the fans” movie taking us all back to the first few Saw flicks. Let’s hope this turns out good.
Here’s the official “Legacy” featurette for Kevin Greutert’s Saw X, direct from Lionsgate’s YouTube:

John Kramer (Tobin Bell) is back. The most disturbing installment of the Saw horror franchise explores the yet 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, also known as Saw 10, is directed by American editor / filmmaker Kevin Greutert, director of the films Saw VI, Saw 3D, Jessabelle, Visions, and Jackals previously, plus a few shorts and tons of editing work. The screenplay is written by Josh Stolberg & Pete Goldfinger (both writers of Sorority Row, Piranha 3D, Jigsaw, Crawlspace, Kappa Kappa Die, Spiral). Produced by Mark Burg and Oren Koules. Lionsgate will debut Greutert’s Saw X in theaters nationwide starting on September 29th, 2023 this fall. Full trailer here. Ready to watch this?
