Jigsaw is making a killing.
Saw X has already made its mark as one of the best entries in the long-running horror franchise, as it impressed both critics and fans in its opening weekend.
The film–which posted an 87 percent Rotten Tomatoes score and a B CinemaScore–finished second in the domestic box office race in its debut, earning a cool $18 million from 3,300 theaters, according to a report on Deadline.
Saw X–directed by Kevin Greutert from a screenplay by Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger–finds John Kramer (Tobin Bell reprising his iconic role) as he tries an experimental procedure that may cure his cancer. Unfortunately, that is not to be–as the “cure” is exposed as a cruel hoax.
And so, Kramer resorts to sterner measures–devising “devious, deranged and ingenious traps” for his tormentors. Of course he does.
The cast is rounded out by Shawnee Smith (as Amanda Young)–along with Renata Vaca, Paulette Hernandez, Joshua Okamoto, Octavio Hinojosa, Synnove Macody Lund, Steven Brand and Michael Beach.
