Police called to the Saw X editing suite after neighbour thought someone was being tortured to death
| Last updated
Anyone who has watched any of the Saw movies will know that they are gory and filled with horrifying moments.
There are so many disgusting 'games' contained in each movie and the victims certainly don't go through it quietly.
But imagine if you didn't know that your next door neighbour was watching the film.
You'd probably get worried that something terrible was happening on the other side of the wall and you might call the cops.
Well, that's exactly what happened to the editor who was working on Saw X.
First Assistant Editor Steve Forn was in the middle of chopping through one particularly gruesome scene when authorities knocked on his door to see if everything was okay.
Director Kevin Greutert recalled the hilarious story to NME.
"We have the doorbell [camera] video of the police walking up, [Forn answering the door] and the police saying, ‘The neighbours [have been] calling and saying someone’s being tortured to death in here," he explained.
“And he was like, ‘Actually, I’m just working on a movie… You can come in and see it if you want?’ The cops started laughing! They said, ‘We want to but, you know, you’re all right'.
"It must have been a pretty realistic performance!”
Greutert added: “It’s a pretty funny story… Plus Steve is such a mild mannered guy. I can only imagine the look on his face when he realised what was happening!”
Forn was working on the scene that has become one of the biggest adverts for the tenth film.
You might have seen posters of a guy hooked up to a machine with tubes coming out of his eyes.
The bloke has to 'break his fingers one by one or risk his eye balls getting sucked out by vaccum tubes'.
There's another 'game' where someone has to perform brain surgery on themselves before the timer runs out.
The film is is set between the events of Saw and Saw II and sees John Kramer travel to Mexico to get an experimental cancer treatment.
However, he discovers it was all just a scam to get his money.
"Armed with a newfound purpose, John returns to his work, turning the tables on the con artists in his signature visceral way through a series of ingenious and terrifying traps," the synopsis says.
The film has been rated R because it contains drug use, language, grisly bloody violence, and torture.
So, pretty much everything you have come to expect from a Saw film.
