‘Saw X’ Introduces New Game with Jigsaw in Latest Promotion

Pop culture event


The much-anticipated tenth edition of the Saw franchise, Saw X, is on its way, featuring the return of the iconic John Kramer character, portrayed by Tobin Bell. In a unique marketing stunt, fans are now invited to call a number advertised on the official Saw Twitter account, where they will be treated to a 40-second phone call from the notorious Jigsaw killer. Set as a prequel that unfolds between the original Saw and its sequel, Saw X explores Jigsaw’s quest for a miraculous cancer cure and his vengeance on scam artists.

As anticipation builds for Saw X, the next chapter in the Saw franchise, fans are given a thrilling opportunity to interact with the infamous Jigsaw killer – John Kramer, brought back to life by Tobin Bell. Bell’s return marks his first appearance in the series since 2017’s ‘Jigsaw.’ The new film will serve as a prequel set between the events of the first Saw released in 2004 and its sequel from 2005.

The Saw franchise’s official Twitter account has shared the phone number, currently managed by the franchise’s eerily charismatic puppet mascot, Billy. The question arises – “Are you ready to play a game?” Courageous fans can engage in a brief phone call with the notorious serial killer, followed by a text stating “I want to play a game.” Fortunately, accepting this eerie challenge won’t result in abduction by any pig mask-clad henchmen or being ensnared in one of Jigsaw’s lethal traps. Instead, callers will be treated to a preview of Jigsaw in the forthcoming film.

Even though Bell’s character met his demise in Saw III, the malevolent genius had set enough snares and successors to fuel four more films. The games didn’t end with 2010’s Saw 3D, as fans enjoyed the sequel/prequel Jigsaw in 2017, followed by the 2021 spin-off Spiral, which featured Chris Rock confronting a Jigsaw-inspired killer. Now, Saw X promises a return to the series’ origins with a revivified Jigsaw, prepped to challenge more unsuspecting victims. The plot of the upcoming movie is summarized as follows:

“Experience the hidden chapter of Jigsaw’s ultimate games. Positioned between Saw I and II, a sick and desperate John embarks on a risky journey to Mexico, seeking an experimental medical procedure as a last hope to cure his cancer. He discovers the entire operation is a scheme to exploit the helpless, prompting the renowned serial killer to resume his vocation, dealing with the fraudsters in his distinctive, horrific style through intricate, insane traps.”

Saw X’s directorial reins are held by Kevin Greutert, who has previously directed Saw V and Saw VII. The script was penned by Peter Goldfinger, a seasoned Saw contributor who has worked on the past two films. Alongside Bell, the star-studded cast includes Michael Beach, Renata Vaca, Synnove Macody Lund, Steven Brand, Paulette Hernandez, Joshua Okamoto, and Octavio Hinojosa. Series veteran Shawnee Smith also makes a comeback as Amanda Young, a former victim of Jigsaw who turned into a devoted accomplice.

Saw X will make its theatrical debut on September 29.
