"Torture porn" sequel packed with bloody, gory deathtraps.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that The Collection (sequel to The Collector) is a "torture porn" movie made by veterans of the notorious Saw series. Though it's perhaps not quite as sadistic as other entries in the genre, there's definitely no shortage of grisly violence -- for example, a scene in which an entire club of dancing young people is mown down by a giant rotating blade. There's tons of blood (spraying and spurting included) and severed limbs and heads. A young woman is kidnapped, guns are fired, and a dog is (seemingly) stabbed and decapitated. A topless woman is briefly shown, and there are some other mildly sexual situations. "F--k" is used several times, as are other salty words. The previous film was something of a sleeper, so only hardcore horror fans are likely to be interested.

Not anything like the original and has an ending that makes me rethink my love of the main character Arkin, and the twisted love for the Collector himself.
