See The Collector’s Terrifying Vision Realized On ‘The Collection’ International Poster!

Every great collector has a vision, and it will all be realized when The Collection, the sequel to Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton’s slasher The Collector, opens in theaters November 30th, 2012 (in what they’re calling the “real” Black Friday) from LD Entertainment. (We’re also hearing rumors that the film will World Premiere at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas this September!)

The excitement builds now as Bloody Disgusting got our grubby little fingers on the film’s incredible international one-sheet that assembles a frightening centerpiece to the Collector’s gallery. I can’t tell which half is more unnerving, but I’ll go with the skeleton legs…

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 thegruesome 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, stars Josh Stewart (The Dark Knight Rises), Emma Fitzpatrick (The Social Network), and Christopher McDonald (Requiem for a Dream).

Get ready for another gory blast from the minds of four Saw films, the Feast franchise and even Guillermo del Toro’s forthcoming Pacific Rim!

    I didn’t care for the first one, I thought it pushed too hard to try to create a new “iconic villain” but failed miserably in its attempt. The kills were pretty gruesome but most of the characters were so unlikable that the payoff was lackluster. I hope that this one is as good as this poster is and not as over the top as the original, which had some serious potential.

    • Grime

      I agree; it was pretty terrible. I’m really surprised they made another one.

    • EvilHead1981

      Dunstan and Melton have proven to me that if it’s now Saw related, they can’t write for shit. Saw, I think they do semi-well because they aren’t allowed to go batshit crazy, and are still confined to the series rules. When to get too much freedom, we get stuff like The Collector and Feast(and it’s sequels). And like you said, the characters in The Collector were EXTREMELY unlikable, to the very point you could care less about them surviving. There was no investment, as the gore felt rushed for the sake of sakes. It felt like a souless horror flick. Kinda like they got a pot and said, “Okay, let’s make a horror flick. Masked slasher? Toss it in! Pointless gore? Toss it in! Pointless nudity? Toss it in! Character likability? Who the hell wants that? Let’s leave ’em as dry as fuckin possible, because this isn’t a DRAMA, it’s a horror movie. Nobody wants likable characters!! They want throw-away, cardboard standees that drip blood. That’s the ticket!!”.

      I DO like the poster(always had a thing for morbid art), but I’m reluctant to give this guys another chance. I’ve come to the realization that, basically, these guys make movies that I don’t like. There’s Saw movies were only passable because they were still Saw movies(maybe moreso than Dunstan/Melton movies).

        EvilHead, i agree THE COLLECTOR was too much just about gore and so forth and most of the characters weren’t likable but Josh Stewart’s Arkin without a doubt was. he was one of the most interesting and likable anti-hero’s i’ve ever seen. i’m still wondering if they will tell us what happened to his family since he didn’t get back in time to pay off the loan sharks.

        • EvilHead1981

          Arkin WAS the only likable character, I agree. But him trying to save the family, IMO, was a hopeless cause, because they had the lemming death instinct. They were made to die, so it was always a hopeless cause.

          BTW, I kinda though the scene where he visited the loan shark felt off. It was like they ripped it off from a totally different movie altogether, like something out of the Fast and Furious movies or such.

          A personal thing I hated about The Collector was all those fuckin groan sounds and demon growls and screams you hear all over the place. You’d think the house was fuckin haunted or something because of all those displaced sound FX. Is Regan fuckin MacNeil locked in the upstairs bedroom or something? Why the FUCK are there monsters snarling and shit? Just didn’t make sense. There are screams when NOBODY’S DYING. That makes as much sense as a gopher farting the theme to Seinfeld.

          • djblack1313

            EvilHead, good points all. i admit i love it when you said, “Is Regan fuckin MacNeil locked in the upstairs bedroom or something?”!! lol.

  • FreddyKrueger13

    I love the first and I’m so excited for this! This poster is just beautiful!

  • djblack1313

    i 50/50 liked the first movie. i loved Josh Stewart and his Arkin. i’m actually looking forward to this movie. and any TEEN WOLF (the show) fans this movie has Allison’s mom in it (Mrs. Argent) and new werewolf Isaac!!

  • djblack1313

    oh and i love this poster! 2 awesome posters in 1 days (the TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D too).

  • lucie-with-a-gun

    the poster has some really lazy photoshopping.
    lol @ left wall background rust stains.

  • djblack1313

    it kinda reminds me of DEXTER and the Ice Truck killer deal.

  • flesheater24

    This poster is fucked. First one was rad. Wasn’t amazing but it was still cool

    • djblack1313

      flesheater, fucked in a good way? 🙂

  • ThunderDragoon

    Cool. 🙂

  • Between The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D poster and now The Collection… has been a good day in horror.

  • Blood-Sicles

    Awesome that it’s coming to Fantastic Fest. The first was better than I expected from the writers of Feast 2.

  • evenscarier

    I hope it’s good! I loved Arkin; it may not have produced an iconic villian, but what a hero!!

  • Evil_Flip

    I really liked the idea of the first one: a burglar invading a house where some even worse guy is at work. But the torture porn just took me completely out of it. I kinda get the genre but at this point (to me) it’s just lazy (horror)film-making. Don’t get me wrong I love gore, but these guys think scary and nasty is the same thing.

  • purplek

    I find it really hard to believe that I was the only person that really dug this movie. Oh well, fuck it I guess haha Lets all just give our money to 3D/remakes instead. It would appear I am incredibly wrong, but I thought it was one of the best horror films of its decade… People have assholes I guess haha

    • WalkingDeadGuy

      Just because some of us disliked ‘The Collector’ doesn’t mean we only give our “money to 3D/Remakes”.

    • EvilHead1981

      If only life was that simple. But sometimes, even though the MAJORITY of remakes/reboots suck, that doesn’t meant all original horror movies are great by default. There’s some really fuckin HORRIBLE original horror movies out there, dude. There’s not “this” or “that”. As I tend to say, if they come out with a great orignial movie OR remake/reboot, I could care less, just make it FUCKIN GOOOOOOOD. But they don’t, and that’s the sad world we live in. The gems are few and far between the piles of garbage.

    • FreddyKrueger13

      I liked the first, in fact I loved it its my favorite horror movie

  • marioncrane

    Maybe I’m in the minority but I thought The Collector was AWESOME. Super tense and oppressive. Yeah the gore was a little over the top but it was definitely scary, and you feel for Arkin, glad to see he made it to the second movie… 🙂

  • Lizard_Brain

    Actually quite like this poster… reminds me of something though :/ hmmm

    First film had it’s faults but showed promise. I’ll give it a go..

  • viking1983

    loved the first one shame it took almost 3 years to come out from when it was finished, just hope this sequel doesn’t end up as shitty and stupid as the saw franchise
