Saw X editor had police called on him after neighbors heard someone being tortured to death

They were terrified by the eerie noises

The infamous Saw franchise has gone down in cinematic history as one of the gnarliest horrors out there.

From laser collars to the spine-shuddering 'Bone Marrow' trap - I'm sure we're all very much so aware of the incredibly gruesome torture scenes peppered throughout each movie.

However, what many die-hard horror fans out there may not know is that things got so intense during filming one time that Saw X editor’s neighbors called the police on him after hearing eerie noises of someone being tortured to death coming from his office in North Hollywood.

Check out the trailer here:

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

"John Kramer is back," Lionsgate Movies teases.

"The most disturbing instalment of the Saw franchise yet explores the untold chapter of Jigsaw’s most personal game," it went on.

"Set between the events of Saw I and II, a sick and desperate John travels to Mexico for a risky and experimental medical procedure in hopes of a miracle cure for his cancer – only to discover the entire operation is a scam to defraud the most vulnerable."

The official synopsis continues: "Armed with a newfound purpose, the infamous serial killer returns to his work, turning the tables on the con artists in his signature visceral way through devious, deranged, and ingenious traps."

Horror lovers all over the globe have been left on the edge of their seats, with many eager to feast their eyes on yet another addition to the gory thriller franchise, and finally hear Jigsaw deliver his iconic yet stomach-churning line: "It's time to play a game."

Saw X has been hailed the 'most disturbing instalment' of the Saw franchise.


Now, since the movie finally hit theatres in the States yesterday (29 September), it has come to light that the editor of Saw X nearly got into some issues with the law when neighbors began fearing for the worst over volume levels.

Director Kevin Greutert told NME that First Assistant Editor, Steve Forn, had been finishing up sorting the sound design for a particularly bloody scene at his North Hollywood office.

The scene involves an 'eye vacuum trap', which sees the character forced to escape or else risking completely losing his sight.

Unsurprisingly, there's a whole lot of screaming and some hardcore sound effects throughout the ordeal.

"There was a knock at the door," Greutert recalled. "We have the doorbell [camera] video of the police walking up, [Forn answering the door] and the police saying, 'The neighbors [have been] calling and saying someone’s being tortured to death in here'.

The 'eye vacuum' torture trap.

"And he was like, 'Actually, I’m just working on a movie…You can come in and see it if you want?'"

The director then revealed: "The cops started laughing!

"They said, 'We want to but, you know, you’re all right.'"

"It must have been a pretty realistic performance!" Greutert continued. "It’s a pretty funny story…Plus Steve is such a mild mannered guy.

"I can only imagine the look on his face when he realized what was happening!"

Kudos to the actors there I guess.

Saw X released in cinemas on 29 September in the US, and will hit theaters just in time for spooky season 27 October in the UK.
