Just a pointless exercise in sadism.

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.

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.

Just buckets of the same old boring gore.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

Absent any real suspense or characters, its sole purpose is inventive gore, and I guess it deserves credit for achieving the low goal it set for itself.

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.

Dunstan mistakes unpleasantness for fear, reveling in gore for its own sake and destroying any anticipation or suspense in the bargain.

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.

An energetic but utterly weightless exercise in slice-and-dice cinema.

The whole thing is a fairly yawn-a-rific affair until the vengeful prologue establishes a wicked role reversal, hinting at the better movie that filmmakers more interested in storytelling would have made.

One cannot deny that Marcus Dunstan's completely illogical mess of a horror film certainly never bores. It's too bafflingly stupid to be truly boring.

The suspense-free, deeply unpleasant The Collection pummels and bloodies numerous base aspects of competent filmmaking and worthwhile moviegoing.

...the film turn into just another "Saw" sequel (minus the flimsy moralizing)...

There's a bad movie every week, but it takes a special one to make you start anticipating the decline of Western civilization.

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