Saw X will take the stage trend after the credits when the latest installment of the popular horror franchise is released in theaters on September 29.
Although the Saw series traditionally did not include scenes after the credits, the next film will use additional screen time to give fans an idea of the future of the franchise. Despite the history happening between Saw and Saw II, where fans are well aware of what will happen next, there is still a lot to prepare. At the end of the movie, stay until the end of the credits, producer Mark Burg told cinepop. Because there’s a scene where we bring back [characters] from previous movies that will make you very, very happy.
Although Berg did not provide any other details about this scene after the credits, he hinted that Amanda Young (Shawnee Smith) was an integral part of the bonus episodes. Amanda has already been confirmed for Saw X, but according to Burg, the post-credits scene will create a big storyline for her. If this movie works, you’ll definitely see more of Amanda, Burg added.
Amanda Young’s Developing role in the Saw franchise
Amanda is the hidden tertiary antagonist of Saw and the secondary antagonist of Saw II and Saw III. She first appears as a minor character in the 2004 film and is the only known survivor of the Saw killer (John Kramer), a man who kidnaps people and puts them in death traps.
In Saw II, Amanda returns as a Jigsaw student, and her role is to check on Inspector Eric Matthews. She drugs him and imprisons him in a house full of traps, setting the stage for his deeper involvement in subsequent Peel films. Throughout the franchise, Amanda’s psyche deteriorates as she begins to interrogate John and his motives as a puzzle.
Although “Saw X” should last almost 2 hours, director Kevin Groitert says that the story will not be delayed, because the extra time will depend only on the script and will not give the audience the impression that the film was deliberately stretched. I hope that even though the movie is almost 2 hours long, it doesn’t seem bloated or worthless. You know, because it was like an impression of the footage we shot,” the director explained.
Saw X is described as the scariest movie of the franchise, which explores an unreleased chapter of Jigsaw’s most personal game. Stricken with an illness and in desperate need of medication, John travels to Mexico for a risky medical procedure. However, he soon realizes that the whole operation is a deceptive ploy aimed at the most vulnerable.
