How Saw X Different From Previous Parts Of Saw
Focus on John Kramer
One of the biggest differences in Saw X is that it focuses more on John Kramer, the original Jigsaw Killer. Kramer was thought to be dead after Saw III, but he made a surprise return in Saw IV. In Saw X, Kramer is said to be more involved in the action than ever before.
More personal traps
Another difference in Saw X is that the traps are more personal than in previous films. The traps are designed to target the specific transgressions of the victims, making them feel more like a twisted form of justice than just random torture.
Saw X is also set in a new location: Mexico. This is a departure from previous Saw films, which were all set in the United States. The new setting is said to give the film a fresh feel and allow for new types of traps.
Saw X has a mostly new cast, with only a few returning characters. This is likely due to the fact that many of the characters from previous Saw films have been killed off.
The new cast includes Shawnee Smith, reprising her role as Amanda Young from the first few Saw films, as well as Tobin Bell, who returns as John Kramer.
Overall, Saw X looks to be a different kind of Saw film. With its focus on John Kramer, more personal traps, new setting, and new cast, Saw X is sure to surprise and entertain fans of the franchise.
