The studio is brimming with excitement about the upcoming installment of the infamous Saw franchise, which is set to hit theaters on September 29, moving up from its previous release date of October 27. Saw X promises an untold chapter in the haunting saga of Jigsaw, played by Tobin Bell, and is sure to keep audiences on the edge of their seats with its twisted traps and visceral thrills. Let’s take a closer look at what to expect from Saw X and how it stacks up against other fall horror releases.

Saw X – A Gripping Sequel with John Kramer’s Return

Lionsgate’s Saw X will bring back the chilling character of John Kramer, portrayed by Tobin Bell, in what is being described as the untold chapter of Jigsaw’s final games. In the twisted narrative, situated between the occurrences of Saw I and II, the movie centers around a suffering and desperate individual named John, who ventures on a perilous and groundbreaking medical odyssey to Mexico in pursuit of a remedy for his cancer. However, his hopes are shattered when he discovers that the entire operation is a scam to exploit the vulnerable. Returning to his gruesome work, the infamous serial killer seeks revenge on the con artists, unleashing his signature visceral and ingenious traps.

The Minds Behind Saw X

Kevin Greutert takes the director’s seat for Saw X, skillfully guiding the terrifying narrative. The screenplay is penned by Peter Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg, ensuring a chilling continuation of the Saw legacy. Mark Burg and Oren Koules are producing the film, keeping the spirit of the franchise alive and thriving. With a strong creative team behind the scenes, the film is poised to deliver a thrilling and bloodcurdling experience for fans and newcomers alike.

Saw’s Box Office Dominance

The Saw franchise has been a massive box office success, collectively amassing over $1 billion in global ticket sales. The films’ popularity and enduring appeal have solidified their place as one of the most iconic horror series in cinematic history. With such an impressive track record, the anticipation for Saw X’s release is soaring, promising to keep the legacy alive and continue the franchise’s reign of terror on the big screen.

Competition in the Horror Realm

Saw X’s earlier release date strategically positions it as a formidable contender in the fall horror lineup. While New Line’s The Nun 2 is set to hit theaters after Labor Day weekend, Saw X will arrive just ahead of other big horror releases like Universal/Blumhouse/Morgan Creek’s Exorcist: The Believer on October 13 and Uni/Blumhouse’s Five Nights at Freddy’s, which will have a day-and-date release on Peacock on October 27. The clash of these horror giants is bound to create an electrifying atmosphere, catering to horror fans’ insatiable appetite for scares and adrenaline.
