If you enjoy torture-porn flicks then you will like this and know what to expect. Horror movie fans might find themselves alienated do to the lack of any sort of scares and a focus gruesome and bloody kills. That being said the movie is still highly watchable, it just has some issues that keep it from being considered a great movie. Just like its predecessor "The Collection" is basically just one intense game of cat and mouse. It's entertaining enough to keep you watching, but lacks any sort of meaningful plot. For instance we get to see the killer do all sorts of sick and twisted things, but we never get any sort of reasoning as to why he does what he does. This clearly shows that the focus is on the blood and gore, but it would have been nice to know what made the killer tick, and what pushed him over the edge. Still if you go into this just expecting to see some gruesome deaths and wont mind a lackluster plot then "The Collection" might entertain. Just keep in mind that it's not the greatest flick out there. Expand

    The Saw similarities make it nothing new, (it was intended to be a Saw prequel, so, come on) but this film works by keeping the suspense going and making a genuinely creepy character out of the Collector that makes you want to keep watching.

    meh I was definatly hoping for this movie to be better thn it was yet it wasn't a total disappointment. It didn't live up to the original in that it had a few unintentionally cheesy moments but it still upped the gore level.

    This movie was different. If you are expecting a Saw type movie, you will be disappointed. It does, however, bring that well thought out feeling that you got from the Saw movies. It is just that the believabliltiy factor is a zero. From hundreds of deaths and kidnappings, you would figure the police might just consider getting involved. You would think that the one guy who gets awayThis movie was different. If you are expecting a Saw type movie, you will be disappointed. It does, however, bring that well thought out feeling that you got from the Saw movies. It is just that the believabliltiy factor is a zero. From hundreds of deaths and kidnappings, you would figure the police might just consider getting involved. You would think that the one guy who gets away wouldn't be so easily convinced to go back to the hell hole from which he escaped, but he does. It is at that point where the movie becomes a cliche' horror movie where you see people die one by one until the villian gets his in the end, only to create the possibility for more sequels in the future. Rent this if Redbox is all out of real movies and you will be entertained, but I wouldn't put this at the top of the list. Collapse

    An exercise in pure sadism, The Collection moves at a clip that leaps over plot holes in its race to elicit fright.

    The Collection doesn't have much to recommend it beyond a first-reel bloodbath rivaling "Blade" and "Death Ship."

    The movie's a smorgasbord of horror, and, ironically, that takes the teeth out of it. We're not really in this villain's world, because we don't know what his world is, or what he is, or what he's trying to even do. It's like a nightmare designed by someone who's heard a lot about nightmares but has never actually had one.
