Had the pleasure of seeing this a tad early at my local theater. I loved the 1st movie "The Collector" which is not very well known. That movie will keep you tense from beginning to end, its a bad A** little movie. This one does not fall to far from grace. I loved it. If you have not seen the first I suggest you go and rent it (The Collector) and watch it and then see this movie next. In my opinion you won't be sorry. The only negative I will say is it to me this movie its obvious that the "studios executives" had their influence in this movie. While the original movie the collector was special, tense, edge of your seat and did not constantly rely on gore and some cheap thrills, this movie at times lends itself that that "SAW" type of formula, in fact there are a couple of things it outright borrows from it. Still I can't fault it as I'm sure the producers wanted to make sure if they did a follow up movie they wanted a success, so I give The Collector 5 stars this movie 3.5, Go!

I was wondering why this particular film would be released this time of year. I liked the first part, The Collector. A decent slasher/horror film. And I was happy to see the hero of the first film returnning but this movie went way over the top in a good way. But I did wonder if it was up to par for releaseing now when we expect the best films to be coming out. Definately a good Holiday film for us horror fans--thank you evil Santa. If, like me, you're a big fan of horror films, you won't be disapointed with this sequel which is better than the first. However, if you haven't seen the first, watch it before you go if you can. This movie was just right in it's story, effects, characters. Very well put together. Graphically points out the danger of going to Raves with a strange doorman (loved him). It's a 5 out of 5 Stars grading it on the Horror/Slasher graph in my head. Fantastic new kind of twisty-twist ending. Go, horror fans. You'll enjoy it.

Acting is average. They try to make you feel connected to the characters but you just won't. Strong female lead who kicks *** is a plus. There weren't any stupid typical horror movie things like dropping keys/dead flashlights. The only one was the no cell phone signal but it didn't irritate me. Awesome death scenes. The club scene was definitely my favorite part. Everyone made smart decisions which I absolutely loved. Sucks that you don't get to see the killer but I'm a fan of the unknown. The death scenes were cool and Saw-esque but without that excruciating dread and squirming feeling. This movie hints all over the place to a sequel. They never really get into what exactly "the collection" is. And although in the beginning they say the killer does not discriminate with his victims, all you see are teens which is the only thing that really irked me about this movie. Not a lot of good horror movies coming out but I'd make time for this one.
