The Collection offers a few surprises, nothing short of miraculous for a genre so bereft of originality
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

A cheap, loose remake of Aliens that substitutes rampaging hordes of xenomorphs with a gimp-masked kung-fu master.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

If your diet requires you to ingest a certain amount of cinematic blood and mayhem every week, this will meet those needs, like a vitamin. Otherwise it's for collectors only.

Much splattery nonsense ensues -- some of it rather unpleasantly sadistic, and none of it particularly clever.

Most of the rampant gore effects are too sloppy to be interesting...

An exercise in pure sadism, The Collection moves at a clip that leaps over plot holes in its race to elicit fright. No weighty psychology or physical logic freights this enterprise.

Not scary but rather is just a disgusting exercise in gore, dismemberment and bloodletting.

Just buckets of the same old boring gore.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

Comes off as a disappointment, failing to live up to its sequel potential by advancing the conflict and expanding murderous appetites in an exciting, imaginative manner.

The Collection is one of those horror films that really makes you sound like a deranged psychopath for recommending, but demands to be spread like a mind-controlling plague.

things quickly reach a level of silliness that fits more in a comedy or spoof than an actual horror film
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

The Collection is not going to win over gore film skeptics - and that's not necessarily a bad thing. It's an unapologetic celebration of splatter cinema.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

The Collection never hits audiences in the stomach with any immediate sense of danger, and the dialogue and most of the performances feel entirely too campy for the movie to actually be taken seriously. Maybe that is the point, but I don't think so.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

Just a pointless exercise in sadism.

People in Hollywood need to work and surely "The Collection" created a lot of jobs, but there must be a better way.

Dull and repetitive, even by the standards of an already repetitive genre.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

The Collection is brainless, inconsistent, and full of holes. It does offer a ton of gore, but there is absolutely nothing else to enjoy here other than that.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/10

While I'm not entirely sure that it makes much sense, I had a great time with its ultraviolent concoction of b-movie frippery.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

Not for the squeamish and is definitely for those that can handle a lot of sick and twisted violence. Recommended for true torture porn fans.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

A rare sequel that ably tops the original in just about every department.
