While the Saw franchise has expanded considerably since its inception in 2004, the film series' reception has steadily declined over its nine instalments. Ironically, the ninth film was aptly titled Spiral. However, with its tenth instalment, Saw X, the franchise appears to have finally regained its footing, delivering a compelling and lore-friendly narrative that has revitalised the series.
It tells a story about John Kramer, who is hoping for a miraculous cure, and travels to Mexico for a risky and experimental medical procedure, only to discover the entire operation is a scam to defraud the most vulnerable. Armed with a newfound purpose, the infamous serial killer uses deranged and ingenious traps to turn the tables on the con artists.
