Really a good horror film needs to accomplish a few key tasks to be considered a success. One, it needs to draw the viewer in. Two, it needs to keep the viewer engaged (tense & on the edge of their seat). Three, it needs to make you at least to some degree care about the victims. Finally, it should be memorable with memorable & interesting characters & plot twists. I feel this film truly has all of the above down to a science.
In The Collection, the psychopath killer is interesting & the contraptions he uses to trap, mutilated and/or kill his captives are certainly engaging. Viewers will find themselves engrossed in a epically gory thrill ride that's as stylishly fun as it is a dark escape. Not a moment of filler here, every scene has it's place here and none are wasteful. This film is riveting, thrilling and thought provoking. What would you do if you and a friend or even a stranger were caught in a life or death situation? Would you be a hero trying to save the other person or a coward and just try & save yourself?
