Twisted Trailer For The Collection

No comments: Links to this post

We love our Horror films at Cinehouse but unfortunately past few years it's suffered from 'seen it all before' films with too many similar films been dished out. The serial killer sub genre is probably one of those genres that suffers greatly however we do tend to come across the odd film like 2009 The Collector that even satisfies even the hardened critics and tonight the twisted trailer for the follow up film The Collection.

The film comes from the directors of the latter Saw films Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton whose experience from those films do seem to inspire the maze torture our leatherface Kendo Nagasaki wannabe killer has for his victims. The Collection follows the story of  Elena (Emma Fitzpatrick) a young woman who is abducted by a psychopathic killer taken to a Hotel come torture maze. Her wealthy father (Christopher McDonald) hires a team of mercenaries lead by the only person to escape the killer Arkin (Josh Stewart) to guide them through the maze and rescue Elena.

This looks twisted, crazy but fun in a sadistic way and has 'games' even Jigsaw would be jealous off. I've never seen The Collector but those I know who have seen it enjoyed it and has become a minor cult hit but the old cliché will The Collection suffer from the dreaded Sequel hell? No word on the UK release date however if your on the other side of the Atlantic and heading to Fantastic Fest this weekend you can catch the world premier or wait until 30th November for The U.S release.

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).
