Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Just a pointless exercise in sadism."
‑ Nicole Herrington, New York Times
"Melton and Dunstan have created little more than a hollow shell for an empty box."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"The Collection offers a few surprises, nothing short of miraculous for a genre so bereft of originality"
‑ James Luxford, The National
"Much splattery nonsense ensues -- some of it rather unpleasantly sadistic, and none of it particularly clever."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Not scary but rather is just a disgusting exercise in gore, dismemberment and bloodletting."
‑ Jackie K. Cooper,
"People in Hollywood need to work and surely "The Collection" created a lot of jobs, but there must be a better way."
‑ Adam Graham, Detroit News
"There's a bad movie every week, but it takes a special one to make you start anticipating the decline of Western civilization."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"A cheap, loose remake of Aliens that substitutes rampaging hordes of xenomorphs with a gimp-masked kung-fu master."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Most of the rampant gore effects are too sloppy to be interesting..."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"Just buckets of the same old boring gore."
‑ Brett Michel, Boston Phoenix
"Dull and repetitive, even by the standards of an already repetitive genre."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"More than anything, the sequel feels like an excuse for Dunstan and his effects team to see how creative they can be in the bloody killing of people using pointy metal objects."
‑ , Associated Press
"If your diet requires you to ingest a certain amount of cinematic blood and mayhem every week, this will meet those needs, like a vitamin. Otherwise it's for collectors only."
‑ Eric D. Snider,
"An exercise in pure sadism, The Collection moves at a clip that leaps over plot holes in its race to elicit fright. No weighty psychology or physical logic freights this enterprise."
‑ Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
"Comes off as a disappointment, failing to live up to its sequel potential by advancing the conflict and expanding murderous appetites in an exciting, imaginative manner."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
