"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.

This movie is strictly geared towards fans of horror movies who love blood and watching people die in crazy awesome ways. Kind of like the "Final Destination" series, only with a real bad guy. This is a sequel to "The Collector" and picks up right after that one. Here The Collector kidnaps a girl and takes her to hotel that he has transformed into a maze of just crazy torture devices and death traps. When the cops, along with his last victim that got away, come to rescue her they have a lot of fun in that building to put it nicely. The death scenes are great, and it even features one of the best mass death scenes in a night club ever. But, there is little plot, and the actors that actually star in this aren't that good. But then again, that's not why you would watch this movie. Better than the original, and leaves it open to a third movie, which I'm sure will get made. Check it out if you like horror movies, but if you don't or are squeamish, then stay away at all costs.
