Get A Last-Minute Sneak Peek At The Collection With Five SICK New Clips! Watch Here To Find Out How Arkin Makes His Bloody Escape From The Collector

OK,  it’s not quite midnight yet over here on the West coast, but The Collection finally opens in theaters on 11/30!  The studio released some new clips that were pretty impressive (and violent) including one that needed age-verification due to the gore… and in the clips, things are just getting started. See how Arkin manages to escape The Collector‘s fucked-up captivity …and how he figured out a way to find his way back  (blood is also involved). I embedded them here, in chronological order… check them out below!

Turns out I couldn’t include the Red Band clip because it required age verification (though I found some things I really did not need to see by using the search term “the collection tarantulas clip” …some of them made the tarantulas actually used in the movie look like fucking ladybugs). Click here to watch the very NSFW clip – that Emma Fitzpatrick (Elena) is one brave actress.  Did you notice ‘The Collector’ isn’t wearing his mask?

OK, you can’t see much, but he’s not wearing it. Someone had to point it out to me, because I was way more concerned with the tarantulas. Gah!

Plus, you do NOT want to miss this Red Band featurette called “The Gore Factor,” which lives up to its fucking name! Over 200 people are eviscerated in the club scene (I’m in), and they go into some of the practical FX used. Here’s the link to the trailer, which also has a poster comparison, and if you want to read the Fangoria review I re-blogged, click here. Enjoy. And don’t forget…

Gorehounds Unite – See Sick New Featurette From “The Collection” (2012) – The Gore Factor! NSFW

Uh…WOW. Dammit, who am I going to get to see this with me? My husband saw the first Saw  movie with me and was so unhappy I felt bad, and ended up going to future matinees by myself (Saw 3  and Saw 6  ) and was lucky enough to see Saw- The Final Chapter 3D  in the theater with a friend. There were exactly two other people there and we all had a blast acting like we were in our own living rooms when it came to reacting to each trap (thanks again, Dave Barrow–you’re a good friend, and I had a blast).

I was thinking I could wait, but this got me all revved up – mainly because director/screenwriter Marcus Dunstan seems extremely enthusiastic, and… well… you’ll see.

HOAH! 55 gallons of blood in the opening Thresher Rave Club Massacre? I’m surprised that’s all they used. But better yet? They use (as I read in this early review) practical gore effects whenever possible. Dammit, I’d see a midnight showing Thursday night if I wasn’t scared to go to midnight openings now after the tragedy in Colorado in July (not to mention all the copycats they stopped just in time planning to do their own thing in their city). Maybe I can sell it by combining it with Christmas shopping, or something…

Heard the first five minutes are out there somewhere, I’ll look for it to pass on to you! In the meantime, here’s the official site for The Collection, opening on November 30 (“The REAL Black Friday!”  ), and the link to the You Tube channel where I found a version of this I could embed. So far, this is the best video on the channel yet, though! Here’s my post with the original trailer, which includes the semi-censored original poster art.


And the official plot synopsis, if you haven’t read it yet, is as follows:

When Elena’s (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 (McDonald) hires a group of mercenaries to retrieve her from the vicious grips of The Collector. These mercenaries coerce Arkin (Stewart), the only man to have escaped the wrath of this heinous monster, to lead them through the gruesome 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, is a suspense horror film with nonstop thrills at every turn, starring Josh Stewart (The Dark Knight Rises), Emma Fitzpatrick (The Social Network), and Christopher McDonald (Requiem for a Dream).

I need to get holiday stuff done by the end of the month, so now that I think of it, maybe the time WILL fly by…

With 55 gallons of blood, doesn’t look like they’re going for a slow burn. Can’t wait for the practical FX!
