Director Marcus Dunstan’s 2009 film The Collector was a preposterous but efficient slasher flick in which Josh Stewart’s winningly mutt-faced ex-con, Arkin, attempted, without a whole lot of success, to save the family he was burglarizing from the murderous attentions of a masked psycho. The Collection, also from Dunstan, finds Arkin again facing off against the torture-obsessed maniac. This time he’s trying to rescue a damsel in distress from the killer’s demented clutches. Remarkably, the result manages to be both more preposterous and more efficient than its predecessor, with a couple of deaths occurring so swiftly they border on the subliminal. The good news (or the bad, depending on your level of tolerance for this kind of gore-drenched malarkey)? All the important slayings get shown again over the closing credits. B-
