The infamous Jigsaw makes a comeback in Saw X, the tenth chapter of the Saw saga, with the film placed chronologically between Saw and Saw II. In this chapter, Jigsaw embarks on a quest for a solution to his lethal cancer in Mexico, only to stumble upon a deceitful scheme. The forthcoming film could shed more light on Amanda’s character and her shift towards evil. Fans can engage with Jigsaw’s terrifying games by dialing a phone number for updates.

Are you set for another round of terror? Jigsaw sure is, and this September, he is set to revisit our screens with his dreadful escapades in Saw X, the tenth sequel from Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures’ Saw series. The upcoming film offers a time leap, delving once again into John Kramer’s search for a cure, situated between the original Saw and Saw II. Lionsgate sparked intrigue with a sneak peek of Tobin Bell reprising his role as the notorious serial killer before dropping the first trailer ahead of the movie’s launch on September 29.

Saw X follows the chronological order after the introductory game that exhibited Jigsaw’s gruesome tactics. Kramer has since progressed from the notorious bathroom trap, relentlessly fighting his incurable cancer. Against all odds, Kramer clings onto the remote possibility that a cure exists somewhere. Thus, he embarks on a journey to Mexico in search of a potentially life-saving, albeit hazardous and experimental procedure. However, upon arrival, he discovers the operation is a deceitful scam exploiting the most vulnerable individuals. Consequently, Kramer’s focus swiftly shifts as he orchestrates his next wave of distorted and deadly retribution.

The Saw series commenced in 2004, introduced by Cary Elwes and Leigh Whannell who were the first in the long list of Jigsaw’s victims. Whannell’s character, Adam, did not last long, although he reprised his role in a scene illustrating his fate. Elwes also made a comeback, leading one of the franchise’s biggest plot twists. Moreover, Shawnee Smith is predicted to return as Amanda Young in Saw X, a character known for her surprising twists—including becoming Kramer’s protege. As the forthcoming film precedes Saw II, audiences might gain further insight into Amanda’s descent into villainy.
