This unasked-for sequel to 2009’s excellent The Collector dumped all over every good thing about its predecessor. It guts a great premise of all its intelligence and emotional drive, replacing it with disposable and idiotic protagonists that I wanted to see killed, near-zombies, and a mouth-breathing villain who huffs around an abandoned hotel rigged with booby-traps that are only slightly less horrific than this abysmal shamble of a movie. I thought the creative team had been replaced between films but no, same guys. Now I just feel like they got lucky with the first one. Considering their track record is loaded with latter-series Saw films, I’m sure my grade here is affected as much by the pain in my heart as it is what artistic merit this film lacks. The ONLY thing approaching a saving grace in this film is the last three minutes, but they’re not so cool that they actually save anything. You had a good thing guys, and you blew it. Somebody shows these hacks Hitchcock.

THIS IS A REALLY GOOD MOVIE. IF YOU ARE SICK AND TIRED OF SEEING THE PARANORMAL MOVIES, THIS IS FOR YOU. ESPECIALLY, IF YOU LIKE THE SAW MOVIES. THIS MOVIE IS BETTER THAN THE FIRST ONE. IT HAS ACTION, SUSPENSE, GORE AND HORROR. TO BE HONEST, IT DOES NOT HAVE MUCH OF A PLOT BUT IT IS A DIFFERENT KIND OF HORROR MOVIE. ITS A SHAME THAT IT DIDN'T DO THAT WE IN THE BOX OFFICE SINCE ITS A GOOD MOVIE. IF YOU DON'T LIKE GORE, THIS IS NOT FOR YOU. I WOULD RECOMMEND SEEING THE 1ST ONE TO FOLLOW UP. PLUS, ITS GOT A GREAT ENDING TO IT. IT WILL LEAVE YOU SURPRISED. IT DOES NOT HAVE BIG STARS IN THIS. I MEAN ITS GOT THE GIRL FROM HARRY POTTER AND JOSH STEWART BUT NOBODY BIG. THIS MOVIE IS NOT FOR KIDS. GO SEE IT.

I AM A REAL HORROR FANATIC, THE COLLECTION IS SOMETHING NEW AND FRESH. NOT SOMETHING REPEATED OR SO CALLED REMAKE. IT'S DIFFERENT AND AWESOME. NON-STOP FROM BEGGING TO END. GO'S GREAT WITH PART ONE. A MUST SEE.

If you liked the first one (The Collector) like I did then you will definately enjoy this movie. It is more gruesome than the last one, in my opinion, but kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I will definately be buying this when it comes out on Blu-ray.

So many times you go to see an horror movie and leave disappointed. This will not disappoint. Better than the first and I thought the first one was great movie.
