The Saw movies, often labelled as torture porn, portray victims suffering due to their past sins. The unique aspect of the series, emphasized by the character John Kramer (Jigsaw), is that victims have a choice, reflecting the audience’s choice to watch these violent films for entertainment. Though the series seemed to lose its creative spark with Spiral (2021), the 10th instalment, Saw X, attempts to revive it. In this film, the terminally ill Kramer seeks an experimental treatment in Mexico but learns it’s a scam. Seeking revenge, or rather teaching lessons, he puts individuals through gruesome tests. Saw X focuses more on dialogue and less on torture, which may not appeal to all fans. The film offers moral ambiguity and tense scenarios, with the ill Kramer central to the plot, making the audience reflect on choices and morality.
