I have not seen this movie but from my experience this movie was high quality and very fun to watch!
I love scary films and I always go to see these films on the big screen. My friends kind of hate my obsession because most of scary films are no good but sometimes i stumble upon a gem and then it becomes totally worth it. I would not call this film a gem but it was quite enjoyable and i think it was worth seeing it on the big screen. The film was very entertaining and truly scary which is a big plus in my book. I do have to say that it is not a very smart film and there are many illogical details but if you overlook that, you will have a good time. The film is definitely never boring and I was on the edge of my seat throughout the whole film. Overall, if you are a fan of horror films I recommend seeing this one in the theaters, it was fun to watch it.
This is a horror film about a psychopathic killer who kidnaps his victims and keeps them in an abandon hotel which he turned into his own private maze of torture. I did not like this film and I do not think it is worth seeing in the theaters. The film was murky, boring and unoriginal and i wish i did not waste my money and time on it. I have to say that I am not a horror film fan so i guess i am biased but i think even horror fans will not enjoy watching this film. The film was completely illogical and incredibly stupid, i felt offended by it because the makers of this film obviously have no respect for their audience. Overall, if you like scary films i suggest you find a different one because this film was absolutely no good.
Okay, yeah, I admit that this is probably not the best time of the year to release gory slasher movies, but it's still a pretty awesome flick - and hey it's still November, so tell the haters to stop hatin' on this awesome slasher story. There's a girl, see, who gets invited to an ultra exclusive party which she thinks is like totes cool. Well, guess what, fellas: WRONG! She's actually been lured there to be killed by a serial killer known to the public at large as only THE COLLECTOR. Only one person has ever escaped his clutches, and that's the guy played by Josh Stewart who is brought in to try and help get the girl out. Of course, it could mean the end of his life too and he might not escape the second time, so the stakes are iiterally double life or double death. I loved the suspense and hope they make a series out of this one like they did for Saw. It's totally freaky and freakin amazing!
So, let me just put it this way: this is NO "Deer Hunter". This movie is straight up crazy torture fantasy for sickos who like to watch the young, innocent, and worthless get tortured and killed. I would never, ever let my kids watch this! I went to see it with one of my friends who likes gory movies and who is also a big fan of the Saw series. I only liked the first Saw, but I heard this one was written and directed by one of the Saw writers so I thought it might be able to redeem itself. Um: WRONG! The story is so predictable and not at all what I was hoping for - I wanted more thriller and less bloody filler. This is about some dumb rich daddy's girl who gets kidnapped from a party and ends up in the clutches of a psycho called the Collector. To get her out, her father hires some "clan" of extractors who find the only guy who has ever been able to escape the collector. It's so routine it's not even worth guessing. Cringe and yawn!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year . . . for Christmas torture porn movies, that is. “Sleigh bells” and “nutcrackers” take on an entirely new meaning when the season is hijacked by a psychopath who likes to collect skulls and body parts. The man in the red suit is wearing blood. Literally.
I’ve never been a fan of movies like Saw which are basically a series of scenes in which a psychopath serial killer invents as many ways to kill his victims as possible (feminists, I hear you: why are the serial killers never women?!). The Collection tries to one-up this age-old formula (it’s from Saw writers Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton) but in the end it is about as serviceable as one can expect from a duo most famous for movies about deranged lunatics forcing their victims to play sadistic games before they kill them off.
(Side note: I imagine this is how Donald Trump fantasizes about the poor and his many objects of fomented Twitter rage. But that’s another story – and sadly one we’ll probably never get to see on screen… Another side note: can we just kill him already?)
As it is also directed by Dunstan in his debut effort, the plot is fairly straightforward: a young woman named Elena (Emma Fitzpatrick) is kidnapped from a party at a secret location by a psychopath killer known only as The Collector. Her father, who is loaded like Daddy Warbucks, recruits the only man known to have escaped The Collector: Arkin (Josh Stewart), who reluctantly agrees to go back in and face his would-be killer one final time.
It doesn’t take much imagining to figure out how things work out, but suffice is to say there will be a sequel. If they can make six Saw movies, they can surely make a sequel to this one.
