If you look closely at the police arresting Arkin in the hospital, one of them is horror director John Gulager who has collaborated with Marcus Dunstan on other films. See more »

Arkin (Josh Stewart), the survivor from THE COLLECTOR, is forced into the warehouse of the killer by a group of professional hunters so that they can rescue a girl (Emma Fitzpatrick) who has been kidnapped. The group soon find themselves in a deadly game that has them entertaining one rigged room after another. THE COLLECTION is a sequel to the 2009 film that I'm not sure anyone was really asking for. I thought THE COLLECTOR was an entertaining, if flawed, movie that managed to have a few good things going for it. THE COLLECTION is certainly very flawed and has a bit of "been there, done that" but at the same time it's still a little better than most of the horror films from this year. As usual, director Marcus Dunstan offers viewers plenty of violence and gore. If you're wanting a gore feast then this here will certainly keep you happy as bodies are ripped to shreds in a variety of ways including a rather clever way to start the picture. I'm not going to give away what happens in the club but it was pretty wild and certainly memorable. I also think that the two lead characters are pretty good and they at least make you like them and want to see them work their way through this deadly maze. Both Stewart and Fitzpatrick offer up fine performances and help keep the film moving. The biggest problem with the film is that there's zero tension. This here is really too bad because had there been some sort of tension or drama then the film would have worked so much better. Since we're on this cat and mouse ride, the lack of any tension just makes everything feel rather routine and the deja vu from the first film is certainly here. Still, gore fans should enjoy the picture and it's cruel ways to destroy the human body.
