In 2009, Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton gave us something in The Collector that was both sinister and comfortably conventional. It was the creation of a new horror boogeyman with a singular agenda and a vicious mean streak. It will be interesting to see what new avenues of torment and delightfully devilish machinations our boogeyman constructs. Genre dogma suggests an elevated level of gore and fantastical setups from this slasher sequel. Where some may interpret that as cause to avoid The Collection, I can’t help but be intrigued.
