Interview: Saw X director and producers discuss the latest entry

We sit down with producers Mark Burg, Oren Koules, director Kevin Greutert, and production designer Anthony Stabley to talk all things Saw X.

There are some times that you really just have to pinch yourself to make sure you’re not dreaming, and I had one of those moments as I stepped onto the infamous bathroom set of Saw. Set up at the Saw Experience in Las Vegas, it was a pleasure to get to talk all things Saw in a place straight out of that universe. While we obviously couldn’t get into spoilers (though believe me, I wanted to) producers Mark Burg, Oren Koules, director Kevin Greutert and production designer Anthony Stabley were an absolute pleasure to chat with. We went over some of the traps of the film as well as just how great it was to see John and Amanda up on film together again. Our review drops tonight, but we did post a quick reaction yesterday – check it out here. And yes, there were some very slight sequel talks so if you’re a fan of the series, you’ll want to check out this conversation.

Saw X plot: John Kramer (Tobin Bell) is back in SAW X, the most intriguing, unexpected, and chilling installment of the global horror franchise. Exploring the untold chapter of John / Jigsaw’s most personal game, the film is set between the events of Saw I and II. A sick and desperate John travels to Mexico for a risky and experimental medical procedure, which he hopes will be a miracle cure for his cancer. But he discovers the operation is a scam to defraud the most vulnerable. Armed with a newfound purpose, John returns to his unique work, turning the tables on the con artists in his signature visceral way, through terrifying and ingenious traps. Or, as John tells it, he helps people overcome their inner obstacles and make positive changes in their lives.

SAW X IS IN THEATERS ON SEPTEMBER 29TH, 2023.
