What is the Saw X age rating? When you think of Saw, you think of deviously-constructed death traps and you think of buckets and buckets of gore. That’s the sort of thing that tends to get a movie in trouble with the various ratings bodies.

The Saw X age rating hasn’t been officially confirmed, but we’d expect it to get an R rating in the USA and an 18 certificate in the UK due to its gory violence.

We’d be stunned if the franchise breaks the habit of a lifetime and waters the chaos down in order to get a PG-13. Certainly, the Saw X trailer seems plenty blood-thirsty.
