Set between the first two Saw movies, Saw X follows John Kramer (Tobin Bell) as he desperately seeks a cure for his terminal cancer. With little to no options left, Kramer embarks on a trip to Mexico where he hopes an experimental procedure can offer the cure he’s long been waiting for. However, following his procedure, Kramer realizes the entire operation is a scam that preys on the most vulnerable. So, as Kramer tends to do, he goes back into Jigsaw mode, exacting his twisted vengeance on those responsible for the entire operation. He even enlists the help of his apprentice Amanda Young (Shawnee Smith).
Saw X was directed by Kevin Greutert from a screenplay by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg. Oren Koules and Mark Burg produced. Additional cast includes Synnøve Macody Lund, Steven Brand, Renata Vaca, and Michael Beach.
Saw X is playing now in theaters. Tickets and showtimes are available here.
