Movie Review: ““The Collection”

Published December 6, 2012

Hideous exercise in torture porn about a masked maniac (Randall Archer) who likes to kidnap people and practice dissection on them, both pre- and post-mortem. When his latest victim (Emma Fitzpatrick) disappears, the only survivor of his previous activities (Josh Stewart) joins forces with a team of mercenaries (led by Lee Tergesen) her wealthy father (Christopher McDonald) has hired to rescue her. Director Marcus Dunstan’s follow-up to his equally sadistic 2009 flick “The Collector” sows mild confusion and deep boredom in between harvesting body parts. Pervasive graphic and gory violence, including torture and dismemberment, some sexual humor, much rough and crude language, an obscene gesture. The Catholic News Service classification is O—morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R—restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
