The Collection Film Trailer Review
I wasn't fortunate enough to watch the first film this second one picks off, but hey it is still not too late right? I'm a bit squirmish at times but I think I'll give the first one a try first since the same characters in the first film will be on this second gore-fest of a slasher horror flick.
So what can we make out of the trailer? Well, luckily that this new mass murderer is just like the "beloved" Jigsaw from the Saw series. He is ingenious and good at creating various deadly contractions. They can't fully show the gore in this film and that's the edge of these kinds of films... the shock value. But is there anything new that can shock the slasher horror film fans? Well that is what The Collection should at least pull off in a way. In order for it to become the next Saw franchise it has to offer something more and not to become like a drained out cow milked to the bones like what other producers did with their film series.
How about you guys, are you a fan of this kind of horror film? after seeing the trailer of The Collection will you even try it out? Have you seen the first one, what can you say about it? If not, then will this make you try to grab a copy of the 2009's The Collector? Share your thoughts about The Collection movie trailer in the comments section below:
