Kevin Greutert: ‘Saw X’ Will Be “The Most Epic” Entry Yet

Let the games begin.

Saw X–the tenth installment in the horror franchise–slashes its way into theaters next month, and fans are in for a long and “epic” treat this time around, according to director Kevin Greutert.

The Twisted Pictures feature–hitting the big screen Sept. 29–is “the most epic and–this might sound scary–I think it’s the longest Saw movie,” Greutert told fans at the recent Midsummer Scream 2023 convention.

“We don’t waste,” the director continued. “When we’re editing a Saw movie, we don’t waste time. So, the fact that it’s long is a testament to just how well done it is.

Greutert added that this next film is not as complex as earlier entries. “This is a much more straightforward story,” he said. “But in a really good way. And because the timeline is between Saw and Saw II, we’re not bending ourselves into weird contortions to include Tobin Bell’s character.”

Saw X–which features the return of Tobin Bell’s John Kramer–is described as “the untold chapter of Jigsaw’s final games.”

Written by Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger, the film follows Kramer as he goes to Mexico for an experimental procedure that may cure his cancer–but one that turns out to a horrible scam.

And so, predictably, the vengeful serial killer turns the tables on the con artists–“using devious, deranged and ingenious traps.”

Rounding out the cast are Shawnee Smith (as Amanda Young)–along with Renata Vaca, Paulette Hernandez, Joshua Okamoto, Octavio Hinojosa, Synnove Macody Lund, Steven Brand and Michael Beach.

The original 2004 Saw–directed by James Wan from a screenplay by Leigh Whannell–stars Cary Elwes, Danny Glover, Monica Potter and Bell. In the movie, the Jigsaw Killer tests his victims’ wills to survive by subjecting them to his own brand of deadly games.
