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.

Melton and Dunstan have created little more than a hollow shell for an empty box.

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

More than anything, the sequel feels like an excuse for Dunstan and his effects team to see how creative they can be in the bloody killing of people using pointy metal objects.

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

It's never boring. Dumb, gross, gratuitous, and overly familiar, sure. But never boring.

A murkily directed bore "dealing" with the subject of serial killers and revenge ...

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.

This sequel to 2009's The Collector features enough gratuitous carnage to satisfy hardcore horror fans, if few others.

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

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.
