I’m a huge fan of Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton’s ‘The Collector’ film. It was a horror movie that was completely original (for the most part, it WAS written by SAW writers) and it left me wanting to know answers at the end of the film. Who was the Collector? Why did he put people in boxes? Where does get such soul-less eyes!? Hopefully a portion of these questions will be answered in the upcoming sequel The Collection. Check out the trailer below!
Here’s a synopsis.
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).
Somehow the making of this movie has eluded me and The Collection is coming out November 30th to theaters. Perfect for Thanksgiving!
