The Collection

Critics Consensus

The Collection offers more grisly thrills and twisted humor than its predecessor; in other words, fun for genre fans, but unpleasant for anyone else.

Movie Info

When Elena's (Emma Fitzpatrick) friends take her to a secret party at an undisclosed location, she never imagined she would become the latest victim of The Collector, a psychopathic killer. The Collector kidnaps and transports her to an abandoned hotel he's transformed into his own private maze of torture and death. Upon learning of his daughter's disappearance, Elena's wealthy father (Christopher McDonald) hires a group of mercenaries to retrieve her from the vicious grips of The Collector. These mercenaries coerce Arkin (Josh Stewart), the only man to have escaped the wrath of this heinous monster, to lead them through the gruesome labyrinth. Now, Arkin finds himself fighting for his own life in order to save Elena. -- (C) Official Site

    Interesting film but way more violent that it needs to be. This film holds nothing back and is pretty fucked up and pretty disturbing to watch.

    The twisted minds behind the Saw series and The Collector are at it again. An ultra-stylish, bloody and heart-pounding edge of your seat thriller. It's loaded with more deaths and more insane ways to die, it's a horror fans dream come true. A sadistic mad-house of thrills and chills from start to finish.

    I don't mind gore. If gore is not your thing, though, do NOT watch this. This movie has lots. Very entertaining, and a good follow-up to the first one. It actually is better....and this one, as opposed to the first one, had a kick-ass ending! Makes all the difference in the world to me...

    The Collection is a supremely disappointing follow-up to its promising predecessor, The Collector. Wherein The Collector offered legitimate scares, had an excellent sense of tension, and was largely well executed, The Collection seemingly makes a parody of that. The film starts absurd from the first scene, with a comically clichéd set up, and an increasingly absurd plot. The Collector's mechanisms are elaborate yet idiotic. His lair is an abandoned hotel seemingly in the middle of the city, populated with vagrants. The devices he utilizes seem to be a rip-off of the later Saw sequels, but with even less thought. In short, there is no element of realism to be found anywhere in the film in any way, shape, or form. The actors are mostly bad, left to inhibit characters that are vacant of any substance, in a film devoid of wit, charm, or, especially, intelligence. It's not "so bad it's good", its "so bad its bad". 1.5/5 Stars
