The chilling screams from the latest horror film, Saw X, were so intense that concerned neighbors actually called the police.
In an interview with NME, SAW X director Kevin Greutert recounted an incident during the editing process.
Steven Forn, the film’s first assistant editor, was working on the sound design for a particularly gruesome scene known as the “eye vacuum trap” at his North Hollywood office.
This prompted a response from the Los Angeles police after neighbors reported possible danger.
There was a knock at the door. We have the doorbell camera video of the police walking up, Forn answering the door and the police saying,
The neighbors have been calling and saying someone’s being tortured to death in here.'”
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!”
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 realized what was happening!” – the 58-year-old director added.
Saw X, which was released a few days ago has since received high praise and took the top spot in the horror franchise, which first began in 2004
