The Collection offers a few surprises, nothing short of miraculous for a genre so bereft of originality

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.

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.

While I'm not entirely sure that it makes much sense, I had a great time with its ultraviolent concoction of b-movie frippery.

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.

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

Genre aficionados are likely to revel in every crunched bone, gratuitous decapitation and slow-motion iron-maiden impaling.

Feels like old-fashioned fun.

Splatter quickie achieves the aims of Grand Guignol: to provoke gasps, flinches, or laughs, take your pick.

Remarkably, the result manages to be both more preposterous and more efficient than its predecessor, with a couple of deaths occurring so swiftly they border on the subliminal.

Slant Magazine

Whereas the later Saw films were hampered by bloated backstory, various ostentatious agendas, and self-satisfied sadism, The Collection feels utterly unburdened by anything but its lean, fleet-footed plot.

For those who are on board, it's a more absurd yet equally efficient bit of grisly fun; for those who never were, don't expect this one to change your mind regarding mindless bloodshed.

Slick, wickedly funny, and brazenly over-the-top.

The Collection [is] a punchy piece in the pantheon of sequels.

[Marcus]Dunstan and Patrick Melton have effectively made a sequel that expands on their dark and twisted world in a gleefully gory way.

Chiller TV

The rare horror sequel that doesn't demand loyalty to its predecessor, The Collection actively avoids genre clichés for an effectively creepy post-torture thriller.

The creators of The Collector go with an Aliens framework for Part 2, and it's not like they're coy about it.

Full Review Source: FEARnet | Original Score: 3/5

Walter Chaw
Film Freak Central

A cheap, loose remake of Aliens that substitutes rampaging hordes of xenomorphs with a gimp-masked kung-fu master.

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.
