Check Out a New Trailer From THE COLLECTION
Hello ladies and gentlemen, Muldoon here with a movie I'll hopefully be catching in a few days at Fantastic Fest. I'm a horror junky, so when this trailer from SAW guys Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton popped up on an email.. well let's just say I dig what I see and think some of you fine folks might just think the same. The flck hits theaters November 30th and screens at Fantastic Fest this next week
When Elena's (Emma Fitzpatrick) friends take her to a secret party at an undisclosed location, she never imagined she would become the latest victim of The Collector, a psychopathic killer. The Collector kidnaps and transports her to an abandoned hotel he's transformed into his own private maze of torture and death. Upon learning of his daughter's disappearance, Elena's wealthy father (Christopher McDonald) hires a group of mercenaries to retrieve her from the vicious grips of The Collector. These mercenaries coerce Arkin (Josh Stewart), the only man to have escaped the wrath of this heinous monster, to lead them through the gruesome labyrinth. Now, Arkin finds himself fighting for his own life in order to save Elena. "The Collection," directed by Marcus Dunstan and written by Dunstan and Patrick Melton, is a suspense horror film with nonstop thrills at every turn, starring Josh Stewart (The Dark Knight Rises), Emma Fitzpatrick (The Social Network), and Christopher McDonald (Requiem for a Dream).
So what are your thoughts? Did this trailer for THE COLLECTOR sequel do anything for you?

Rented Cabin in the Woods last night and by god that was a breath of fresh air. I can't stand watching these Friday the 13th/Halloween/Nightmare/etc. ripoffs anymore. I wish there was more fresh horror out there with some variety instead of this crap. Yes, I'm guessing here, but Horror is a genre with a high C/D ratio (crap to decent).
Sept. 20, 2012, 12:44 p.m. CST
These movies are all stupid, but I'll se every one of them. I can't remember much about the first one, but I seem to remember it was a decently good time.
Sept. 20, 2012, 12:46 p.m. CST
Yes, there's lots of the recycled crap. But I like those too. However, seeing something fresh is always a welcome. But I'll never get tired of these dumbass movies, and I don't know why. I just can't stop watching them.
Sept. 20, 2012, 12:46 p.m. CST
I was probably one of the few people who actually saw The Collector in theaters and really enjoyed it for the most part.
I'll probably see this as well.
Sept. 20, 2012, 12:47 p.m. CST
Was all that spoiled the the last one. Looks like Saw has a new blah blah blah

The rest of it was seemingly splatter-by-numbers, albeit in larger quantities than usual (the dance club-cum-thresher was at least unique), but seeing that name pop up onscreen just took me right the hell out of it all.

I have been waiting patiently for this movie ... the first one was terrific!

As you can tell from my moniker, I prefer movies with inhuman monsters in them. I just love the design and thought that goes into them. Sadly, with the advent of CGI, it seems that creativity has gone out the window so we get unlimited numbers of "worm things" and "tentacle things" and "werewolf things" but it's been so long since I've seen any really cool monsters. Cabin had some, and that's probably why I adore it and why I keep turning my back on the rest of the genre. I used to like series like Tales from the Crypt and Masters of Horror, but it all just seems so pointless. So few really original ideas out there, and I'm long past where I can enjoy Halloween-type films with the omniscient and unkillable evil enemy. (Though I'd LOVE to see a film based upon the zombie family from Cabin! Man those were some awesome designs!) Ah well. Maybe, like Roger Murtaugh, I'm too old for this shit.

I am probably one of the few who know that The collector is played by that Colombian wannabe Michael Bolton looking drug cartel enforcer from Crocodile Dundee 2.

So we can maintain the usual boy/girl ratio of a slasher film.

Two friends saw Chris McDonald once. Friend one says, "Hey man, you're a cool actor." When McDonald became prickly (a simple "thanks" would have sufficed), my other friend squares up with the finger pistols, yells "Shooooootaaaahhhhhhhh" and then erupts

Everyone in the lobby turns and looks. Shooter mutters some pejoratives and flees.

I imagine the killer has this running commentary in his head as people wander through his silly little maze: ''You thought it was a couch but now it's got NAILS! You thought it was a kitchen table but now it's got NAILS! You thought it was your shoes but now they've got NAILS! You thought...''
Sept. 20, 2012, 1:54 p.m. CST
Or... wait, I guess the first one sounded even more like Home Alone, with the thief. I guess people probably made this joke already. Ignore me.

Glad u posted this so the world knows now! God bless you. You should explain more of your life in these talk backs.
Sept. 20, 2012, 2:19 p.m. CST
So watching this seems like a waste of time for me.
Sept. 20, 2012, 2:38 p.m. CST
I actually enjoyed the first one, so I'll give this one a shot.
Sept. 20, 2012, 3:02 p.m. CST
Fucking hilarious, good on you. I was just thinking that all these movies look like a cross between the old Mousetrap board game plus whatever nails and knives people can drum up from Home Depot. You thought it was just a roll of toilet paper but now it's got NAILS!!! Ha ha.

There's only so much torture porn I can take. So I'm guessing we have some twist at the end that leads into the next. It can't be anymore convulted or confusing as the way the Saw Franchises ending up going. Hated those movies. The first was the only decent one.
Sept. 20, 2012, 4:23 p.m. CST
The Collector guy just grimly watching from the rafters above. And then the screaming poor sucker on the toilet is swinging his legs around madly, and sets off some kind of tripwire so that the toilet seat clamps closed on his ass like a bear trap. Collector guy still just stands there. A job well done.
Sept. 20, 2012, 4:46 p.m. CST
I'm sorry but that just looked hilarious. Hell it looked like they practically had to almost go to a 2nd line on the screen.
Sept. 20, 2012, 4:53 p.m. CST
At least we'll always have this parody from this crappy sub-genre. http://youtu.be/3Y8WK1Mw0lU
Sept. 20, 2012, 5:12 p.m. CST
wait for this time next year we will have seen several blatant Cabin in the Woods rip offs. I bet you a ca-zillion bucks.
Sept. 20, 2012, 5:37 p.m. CST
Needs more porn.
Sept. 20, 2012, 7:09 p.m. CST
I'm able to suspend belief and common sense with the best of em but....he booby trapped the club and it filled up with people and all this shit went unnoticed until the club was at full capacity and then all this shit just starts going off at once? Blow me. At least in the first one, as outrageously implausible as it was, it was a house that he rigged up. He had a ton of time and he was totally alone so it was acceptable. It was totally unbelievable and way too much, but accetable as far as suspenson of belief is concerned. Plus the first one had the boobies of Mia from Californication in it, but she died and those are pretty incomparable boobies. Does anyone realize that Mia from Californication with her boobies and Punching and Fucking stolen book was the little girl in The Nanny, that terrible, terrible sitcom that some of you were as unfortunate as I was in having a wife who for some fucking reason found Fran Drescher watchable. Well...she was watchable in Hollywood Knights cuz she showed HER boobies, but nothing other than that. Anyway, riggin the club? Come on.
Sept. 20, 2012, 7:35 p.m. CST
You're awesome - This movie blows.
Sept. 20, 2012, 11:17 p.m. CST
is this a sequel? or are you referring to the first saw movie? /confused

Haven't seen it, or any of those roman numeral saw movies, so i have no further comment.

It had some nice shots but otherwise was nothing new and full of plotholes. Light on actual tension, as well. Very forgettable. Martyrs had a lot of issues as well, especially with tone, but at least it was memorable.
Sept. 21, 2012, 2:58 a.m. CST
Look at the bullshit coming out in the horror genre recently. The Collector is bad ass and I more than welcome a series of films devoted to this character to rank him in the horror hall of fame next to the slashers of the 80's. I know what I'm gonna be this Halloween that's for sure. :)
Sept. 21, 2012, 3:22 a.m. CST
quite good, IMO. People being snarky about something just because it looks to be in the same vein as the latter Saw films and knock-offs are as bad as people that flock to SEE it just because it does haha. Trailer looks cool, will definitely see this and I haven't been able to stand much in the way of the genre since the original Saw. And I thought Cabin In The Woods was/is pretty over-rated. Sure it's...different, but still in a pretty obvious way and maybe my expectations were too high after waiting so long, and after the hype/good reviews when it finally released, but to me it felt very minor and could've done so much more with its premise than it did; the subverting of horror tropes went no further at all than the taglines on the original posters. And *SPOILERS for CITW* all those monsters to choose from and the main characters only ever have to deal with zombies? and the characters were dispatched so quickly and summarily...I dunno, to me it felt almost like a very good TV pilot or something (and im NOT saying that cos whedon wrote it, fuck you haha)
Sept. 21, 2012, 4:57 a.m. CST
What's next, 'The Collected'? 'The Collectables'? 'The Collectioner'? And will it have extra nails? And will there be a variety in the types of nails employed? Each one of these things needs to up the nail count of its predecessor. Guy's rigged up a house and a nightclub so far? Maybe the third one can have him booby-trap an apartment block. Or a hotel. Or even a really large DIY store? Just imagine, you think you're picking up some regular nails... WRONG! Booby-trapped nails, motherfucker! Nails booby-trapped with nails!
Sept. 21, 2012, 6:53 a.m. CST
you made me laugh so I won't say fuck you for posting that right after my comment defending the movie ;P but i WILL say, dude you're thinking too small! He gotta rig a whole CITY, yo. lol come on, at least it hasn't been done before! I dunno about the title but I'm happy to go with "The Collectables" :P
Sept. 21, 2012, 8:36 a.m. CST
I'm stepping onto the martian surface ... Ow!!! who puts these fucking nails here?!
Sept. 21, 2012, 8:56 a.m. CST
What is it inside of some moviegoers that allows them to feel pleasure at watching people tortured and murdered? I understand the cleverness involved in the Rube Goldberg-type mechanisms and all that, but this stuff.. all of this Hostel and Saw and on and on and on.. I mean.. why? If you are an actual FAN of this stuff.. if you are someone who feels a happy anticipation that yet another one of these types of movies is coming out.. WHY? What is inside you, that the response to this stuff is PLEASURE?
Sept. 21, 2012, 1:22 p.m. CST
I found it interesting that none of the marketing mentions this is a sequel to The Collector. Probably because it did so poorly in theaters, but then that begs the question, why make a sequel at all? I caught Collector in theaters; as someone said, a few plotholes, a few poorly fleshed-out characters, but really great premise. I'm very interested to see what happened to Arkin after the ending of the first movie. Good to see the same actor is back playing him, too.
Sept. 21, 2012, 4:31 p.m. CST
I am NO fan of these kinds of movies....but Arkin is the perfect chick hero. A thief who escapes the Collector yet decides to go back in the house to save the child? Swoon much? Can't wait for more !
Sept. 21, 2012, 5:42 p.m. CST
@big_daddy_nero - This isn't torture porn, it fits into a smaller but better subgenre of horror that is more about the violence than the torture.
I put it next to High Tension, Inside, The Devil's Rejects, Martyrs, and maybe even Red State as fitting into a violent sub-genre than just plain horror. Also, enough with the fucking "nails" reference already. It's fucking lame and ain't as clever as you seem to think it is. If you actually saw the first film you'd see that nails never played a big part in his traps.
