Saw X puts villain John Kramer (Tobin Bell) front and center, which poses some unexpected risks to the horror franchise. The original Saw is the definition of an unexpected success, with the film being shot on a small budget and intended to go straight to video. Director James Wan's debut was so visceral and intense that it not only overcame its meager origin, it launched a long-lasting series and inspired a whole new horror subgenre. Of course, had Saw been designed with sequels in mind, producers probably wouldn't have made their lead villain Jigsaw/John Kramer terminally ill.
