What is the Saw movie franchise all about?
Saw movie franchise has given years of hair-raising, frightening experiences to the audiences, with the most intimidating storylines. The first Saw movie was released in 2004, where there is a Reverse Bear Trap. It is a clamp placed inside a person’s mouth, holding their jaws shut. To survive, the person must find a key hidden inside their cellmate’s stomach, who is still alive. If they fail, the clamp will open forcefully, causing their jaws to split apart.
In the same movie, a doctor named Dr. Lawrence Gordon manages to escape from being tied up by sawing off his foot in a very gruesome scene. The Saw movies have many other horrifying traps created by a character named Jigsaw, and each movie becomes scarier and more disgusting than the previous one. Despite the creepy content, these movies captivated the audiences.
Who is Jigsaw and what is his role in the Saw franchise?
The famous puppet master, John Kramer (Tobin Bell), also known as Jigsaw, is a psychopath with an intent to teach his victims the value of life. For this purpose, he puts them through a series of twisted and deadly games. His philosophy centers around making people appreciate life and face the consequences of their actions.
Jigsaw’s traps aren’t easy! Each trap is a mind game, that forces the victim to make gruesome choices to escape. These choices mostly involve sacrificing something of great value torturing oneself, or making morally challenging decisions.
Additionally, the entire series gives flashbacks of Jigsaw’s tragic past, revealing his struggles with terminal illness. His condition and experiences drive his obsession with life and death, leading him to believe he is providing his victims with an opportunity for redemption and personal growth.

What to expect from the deadly Saw X?
The next Saw movie, Saw X, appears to be set in the timeline between the first original Saw and Saw II movies. It brings back Tobin Bell as John Kramer/Jigsaw, which fans are excited about. The movie might go back to the style of the earlier Saw films, with a focus on realistic, character-driven, and clever storytelling. Here’s a summary of what we know about the film so far.
After the events of the first Saw movie, John goes to Mexico seeking a medical procedure that might save him. Sadly, he discovers it was a scam to cheat desperately ill people. Feeling betrayed, John becomes Jigsaw and decides to punish those who took advantage of the vulnerable. With the help of his apprentice Amanda, he sets up clever traps to teach them a deadly lesson.
What new traps is Jigsaw setting for his victims?
After John Kramer received fake cancer treatments in Mexico, he knew he didn’t have much time left to live. He told his real doctor that he had important work to do and was seen drawing trap designs in a notebook in the trailer. People are guessing and discussing what kind of traps will be in the movie, as traps are a big part of the Saw franchise. Some of the traps may resemble ones from previous movies, but the franchise has always tried to make each trap unique in some way.
The traps look similar to ones from previous movies. One of them involves a doctor who scammed John. She is tied to a machine with a rope holding her neck in place. There’s a wire in front of her throat, and she must do something to keep her head attached. Another doctor in the trailer is there with a device that looks like vice grips, and it has electrical wires in it. If he fails Jigsaw’s task, it seems like he might get electrocuted.
What does the trailer of Saw X reveal?
In the first Saw X trailer, we learn a lot about the new movie. John Kramer finds out he has cancer and goes to Mexico for experimental treatment. Sadly, the treatment turns out to be a scam, and he loses his money. As a result, John sets up new traps and, with the help of his assistant Amanda, abducts the people responsible for the scam. The games begin once again, and in the trailer, John says that this is not just about revenge, but also a way to teach these scam artists a painful lesson.
The trailer also shows quick-cut scenes of many traps, like a man using a drill bit to dig into his arm, a woman possibly trying to see her leg off with wire, an explosion, someone being lifted off the ground, and a thick liquid pouring on someone’s face.
