The horror franchise Saw is created by Australian filmmakers James Wan and Leigh Whannell. It consists of nine feature films and additional media. The first eight films revolve around the fictional serial killer John “Jigsaw” Kramer, while the ninth movie revolves around a copycat killer while still keeping continuity with the previous films. With the announcement of a 10th film in the Saw franchise, the internet is divided as some fans are in favour of another Saw movie while some others are against it.
Internet divided with the official release date of the 10th Saw film
The untitled Saw film will be the tenth instalment in the Saw franchise and will be directed by Kevin Greutert. He previously directed Saw VI (2009) and Saw: The Final Chapter (2010). He served as the editor for the first five instalments of the franchise and Jigsaw (2017).
For now, Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures are keeping the plot and characters under wraps at this time but have promised that the film will “capture their hearts — and other body parts — with all-new twisted, ingenious traps and a new mystery to solve.”
Franchise producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules said that they are working on what the fans have always been asking and are planning to bring the same for them.
“We have been listening to what the fans have been asking for and are hard at work planning a movie that Saw aficionados and horror fans alike will love”.
They further say:
“And part of that is giving the reins to Kevin Greutert, director of Saw VI, which is still one of the fans’ favourites in the entire series. More details will be revealed soon.”

The film series as a whole has received mostly mixed to negative reviews, but it is still one of the highest-grossing horror film franchises of all time.
With another film in the franchise on the way, the fans have both negative and positive approaches to the announcement.

If they can improve on what Spiral started, then I’ll be willing to check it out. If not, then I’ll pass

I’m a Saw fan, so I’ll be rooting for it and seeing opening night, but I am tempering my expectations after the last 2-3 films. Hopefully once more info comes out that boost my anticipation levels
