The tenth sequel of the chilling horror series, Saw X, depicts a frightening device enveloping someone’s eyes, potentially indicating a new trap. The poster hints at the possibility of the forthcoming movie showcasing Jigsaw’s complex metaphors and direct connections with eyes in his elaborate traps. Saw X unveils an unexplored facet of John Kramer’s life as he confronts terminal cancer and plunges back into his terrifying role as Jigsaw.
Jigsaw is all set for another round of horrific justice. This September, Saw X, the tenth film in the enduring horror saga, arrives in theaters, marking the return of Tobin Bell to his memorable role as John Kramer. During the San Diego Comic-Con, Lionsgate unveiled the initial image of Bell resuming his role. Now, audiences get another peek into the upcoming movie as the studio rolls out a fresh poster — one that’s not easy on the eyes.
The fresh poster alludes to a potential trap in Saw X. It shows an individual with a particularly horrifying device shrouding their eyes, with a pair of lengthy tubes protruding from each one. In alignment with the film’s logo, the tubes cross to shape an “X”. If this turns out to be one of Jigsaw’s traps, whoever becomes the victim will undoubtedly face a terrifying ordeal. Furthermore, it suggests that the crime committed by this person will perhaps have a literal link with eyes, or fall under Jigsaw’s intricate metaphors — or even both. The poster also carries a tagline stating, “Witness the return of Jigsaw.”
Positioned between the inaugural two Saw films, Saw X unearths a hidden chapter from John Kramer’s existence. As previously highlighted in the series, Kramer has been grappling with terminal cancer for a while, with little to no hope of survival. However, he doesn’t surrender easily. Kramer travels to Mexico to participate in a precarious experimental procedure, hoping for a miracle cure. While there, he finds out that the operation is nothing more than a fraud exploiting the most desperate individuals. Driven by his intense sense of justice (though a rather horrifying one), Kramer reemerges as the notorious Jigsaw.
