Saw X is the 10th movie in the Saw Franchise. The longest running Gorno series finds a way to continue the series and its by coming back to the beginning. This movie is going to serve as a prequel to Saw II and will directly follow the events of the first movie. As we recall, Saw II had a time skip, and this film aims to fill the plot holes left by that time jump. Tobin Bell and Shawnee Smith will reprise their roles as Jigsaw and Amanda Young/The Pig.
Their characters have both died already, so this midquel fills in the missing chapter that showcases Amanda’s rise as the Pig. The only way to revive deceased characters is through remaking or rebooting. Therefore, they opted for a Midquel – a prequel that takes place between two movies. At the age of 54, Shawnee Smith still looks young for her years, enabling her to reprise Amanda without the issue of aging.
With Saw becoming an influential horror movie, several ultra violent splatter films followed suit. Moreover, Amanda Young made an appearance as a killer in the Dead by Daylight video game.
