In the film from director Kevin Greutert — who was also behind the camera for Saw VI and Saw: The Final Chapter — Kramer (Tobin Bell) undergoes a miracle cure for his terminal cancer in Mexico.

His gruesome revenge plan is set in motion when he realises the cure is a scam, enlisting the help of his victim-turned-aide Amanda Young (Shawnee Smith, reprising her role from previous instalments).

Unlike its predecessors, Saw X has opened to mostly positive reviews, becoming the only certified 'fresh' film in the franchise on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, where it currently sits at a critic score of 80%.

For comparison, James Wan's first Saw, the highest-rated in the franchise prior to X, only earned 50%, while Greutert's The Final Chapter is the lowest-rated with a score of 9%.

Saw X is in cinemas now and is available to buy or rent in the US from Prime Video, iTunes and more. A UK digital release date has yet to be confirmed.
