First trailer for Saw X has dropped and people are absolutely terrified

First trailer for Saw X has dropped and people are absolutely terrified

It looks terrifying!

A new trailer has dropped for the latest installment in the Saw franchise, Saw X.

Since it first hit cinema screens in 2004, Saw has become one of the most widely known horror franchises in the world. Jigsaw's deadly traps and moral conundrums have delighted and horrified audiences for nearly twenty years.

Now, the latest in the series has been announced, entitled Saw X. And people all seem to be saying the same thing after the title dropped.

In Saw X, this time it's personal, as the serial killer John Kramer seeks out treatment for his terminal cancer. Eventually, he happens upon an experimental treatment in Mexico.

A montage shows all of the people who are involved in the treatment. I have a sneaking suspicion that things may not end well here.

Sure enough, the trailer shows that Kramer's cancer was not cured at all by the team, and that he was in fact duped. Well, that's not going to end well for them.

It seems that the signature traps and dilemmas are now taking on a medical flavour, with the doctors no doubt forced to make choices which are agonising both morally, and physically.

But what is it that people are saying about the film?

Jigsaw is back.

Given the title, Saw X, many people are joking that Twitter (Sorry, 'X') CEO Elon Musk has released a new Saw film in what would be a surprising move.

Fortunately, that is not the case. It's actually the tenth movie in the franchise. Gosh, have they really made ten of these films?

Saw became famous for its extremely gory and unpleasant scenes. It follows the doings of the 'Jigsaw' killer, who typically tortures his victims for some perceived moral fault they possess or slight they have committed.

Certain scenes have become iconic in horror, such as in the first one where someone had to cut their own limb off to escape.

That doesn't look comfy.

Another memorable one saw someone having to jump into a pit filled with hypodermic needles to retrieve a key.

The franchise has long been criticised over its explicit and extreme violence, which sparked a whole wave of similarly gory and grotesque movies.

The iconic killer Kramer was actually killed off way back in Saw III, with subsequent films exploring his character through flashbacks. So it's unclear exactly at what point in the timeline the latest movie will take place.

Whenever it happens, it's certain to be as gory and splattery as the franchise has become known for.
