The eyes have it. In just two weeks, Saw X hits theaters, the 10th installment of the horror franchise. The upcoming addition brings the focus back to series’ core character, John Kramer, as he seeks out treatment and exacts some twisted justice along the way. As the countdown continues, Lionsgate is giving audiences another taste of what’s to come in a newly released clip.
The clip offers another look at a new trap heading to the franchise. While nothing too stomach churning occurs in the clip, it’s certain to make your eyes and hands tingle. The clip shows one of Jigsaw’s latest victims strapped into a chair with a mask connected to long tubes covering his eyes — the very same one featured on the first poster for the movie. However, it’s not just his eyes at risk. It’s his fingers, too. When Jigsaw’s tape recording plays, viewers learn the man is a custodian for the hospital, likely the one that scammed Kramer and others. As the clip continues, it shows the general mechanics of the trap, but the jury’s still out on whether this victim will make it out relatively intact.
Saw X jumps back in time, set between Saw and Saw II. John Kramer (Tobin Bell) lives again, but the clock is rapidly ticking as he attempts to battle terminal cancer. Refusing to give in and desperate for a miracle cure, Kramer heads across the border to Mexico, where one hospital has an experimental procedure that may yet be exactly what Kramer seeks. However, Kramer soon realizes that the procedure is a scam designed to take advantage of the most vulnerable. So, he jumps back into action once more, unleashing his Jigsaw persona — and with the help of his apprentice Amanda Young (Shawnee Smith).
