The Collector is back as he continues
his killing spree. Arkin, a thief from the first film THE COLLECTOR, manages
to escape from the trunk (he was trapped in) at the latest crime scene which is a secret underground party and he is forced
to rescue Elena, the kidnapped daughter of a rich guy. He leads the rescue team
of mercenaries into the Collector’s lair of traps and collected people.
Elena tries to escape as Arkin and the rescue team fight to survive against the Collector because they are in his lair
where he has the advantage.
THE COLELCTION is the sequel to the exciting
horror movie THE COLLECTOR. Both films are nail biting and gruesome with a villain
who doesn’t speak a word when he has that mask on. The only way you know
the collector is through his actions and the creations (and traps) he leaves behind.
Arkin is an unlikely hero you want to survive and rescue the victims of the Collector while the Collector is the coolest
bad guy you want to hate since Pinhead and Michael Myers. Elena is a tough girl
with a disability (she has a hearing aid as the result of a car accident as a
child) while Lucello is another tough guy you want to root for.

Three alternate scenes (Getting To
Know Dre, Picking His Disguise, 8MM) with the final alternate scenes acting like a twisted epilogue to the film.
A DIRECTOR’S VISION
MAKE-UP AND EFFECTS OF THE COLLECTION
SPECIAL EFFECTS OF THE COLLECTION mostly
focuses on the gruesome special effects work seen in the opening minutes and how it was created.
STUNTS OF THE COLLECTIONS takes a behind-the-scenes
look at the stunts and shows pre-viz work of the scenes that require stunt work.
Theatrical trailer and a digital copy of
the movie are the other extras on the disc.
FINAL ANALYSIS: THE COLLECTION is a horror movie that doesn’t let go and doesn’t wear out its welcome. It is a worthy sequel to THE COLLECTOR. Too
bad they couldn’t have the 8MM alternate scene as an epilogue included with the film itself.
