Like gore, gut wrenching horror and lots, lots lots of blood? Well if you don’t but you know someone who does, then The Collection could be the perfect gift…

From the writers of Saw IV, V, VI and 3D comes the thrilling sequel to The Collector that works just as well as a standalone film. Tense, terrifying and packed full of action The Collection will have you on the edge of your seat – or hiding behind it!

Here’s what you can expect from the film….

When Elena (Emma Fitzpatrick) is talked into attending an underground warehouse party with her friends, she finds herself caught in a nightmarishCollection_110215_8948.jpgtrap where the revelers are mowed, sliced and crushed to death by a macabre series of contraptions operated by a masked psychopath. When the grisly massacre is over, Elena is the only survivor. But before she can escape, she is locked in a trunk and transported to an unknown location.

Fortunately for Elena, one man— Arkin (Josh Stewart) —knows exactly where she’s headed, having just escaped from there with his life and sanity barely intact. Going back is the last thing on Arkin’s mind, but Elena’s wealthy father (Christopher McDonald) hires a crack team of mercenaries to force Arkin to lead them to the killer’s lair. But even these hardened warriors are not prepared for what they encounter: an abandoned hotel-turned-torture-chamber, rigged with deadly traps and filled with mangled corpses. Can Arkin and the team get to Elena before she too becomes part of his gruesome “collection”?

Fans of the Saw films will not be disappointed, remember this isn’t one for date night, but it does look like jolly good gory fun! Its yours to own (if you dare) on the 29th April, so put it on your horror wish lists right now!

If you still need more convincing then here’s what some other horror fans thought of the film…

“An unapologetic celebration of splatter cinema.” – screenrant.com

“A slick, wickedly funny, and brazenly over-the-top sequel that does justice to the budding franchise.” – filmschoolrejects.com

“The production design, cinematography, make-up effects (practical effects here, no CG nonsense) and music are all surprisingly superb.” – JoBlo

“Rarely does a sequel live up to its predecessor, but the director/writing team of Dunstan and Patrick have crafted a well thought out, tense film, more than worthy of 2009’s The Collector.” – 8/10 – Starburstmagazine.com

ScreengeekUK invite me to help round off the year in film!

22 Dec

What a year in film it’s been, and what a way to end it. Seven brilliant film critics joined up this week to run through the best and the worst of the year that is 2012. Really pleased and privileged to be a part of this fantastic line up, you can hear me talk about why the Avengers Assemble wasn’t quite 5* perfect in my opinion, and oh the shame, as I name Anna Karenina as one of my worst films of the year.

So huge thanks to the brilliant team at ScreenGeekUK for setting up this wonderful meeting and recording, and thanks to everyone who contributed to make it a very memorable year in film.
