Spooky season is right around the corner and to start things off, Saw X will hit theaters on Friday. The Saw franchise has become an iconic horror series with 10 feature films and various other forms of media. The first film was released in 2004 and became a hit due to its gore, suspense, and twisted concept.
Created by Australian filmmakers James Wan and Leigh Whannell, the series primarily follows John “Jigsaw” Kramer (Tobin Bell), a serial killer who doesn’t directly kill his victims, but instead places them in torture traps that he calls “games” or “tests” to see if they have the will to live. Throughout the series, Kramer inspires a number of copycats. The series is noted for its use of flashbacks to explore the motives of Kramer, his accomplices, and the would-be copycats.
Bell has appeared in the majority of the franchise except for the previous installment, Spiral: From the Book of Saw, which is a spin-off from the first eight films. Spiral focused more on the horror thriller aspect than the typical traps that fans have grown to love from the franchise. Chris Rock took the helm as the star of the film with Samuel L. Jackson joining him as the most notable actor.
Critically, the series has had mixed reviews, but fans have shown up to the box office to see what devious Jigsaw traps they’ll think of next. Financially, the first nine films of the franchise were shot on a combined budget of approximately $97 million and have seen a combined worldwide return of over $1 billion. Even with the titular character dying in previous films, fans cannot get enough of Bell’s performance, which is why he’s back with a vengeance in Saw X.
Cutting the cord doesn’t have to be as difficult as cutting off a body part in one of Jigsaw’s sadistic traps and you don’t have to spend a fortune to catch up on the Saw films. You can find out how to watch the first nine Saw movies on your favorite streaming services, below.
