New Poster For ‘The Collection’ Echoes the Original
2009′s ‘The Collector’ rests comfortably in the upper echelon of ‘Saw’ rip-offs, due in no small part to writers Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, longtime veterans of Lionsgate’s flagship horror series. With that series stalled out after seven films, the duo have returned to their other “masked man builds traps and kills people” franchise with ‘The Collection,’ which has a brand new poster.
Horror fans will undoubtedly get deja vu from this one sheet, which deliberately echoes the design of the first film. The titular villain seen from behind, strapping on his creepy leather mask and surely thinking about all kinds of creatively horrible things to do to people. Since this is a franchise that is destined to run for eight films or more, expect to see this motif repeated for the next decade or so. When part eight (‘The Collection-er-ing’) rolls around, it would not surprise us at all if we’re looking at the back of this guy’s head while he stands on board a spaceship. After all, he’d be following in the steps of ‘Friday the 13th,’ ‘Hellraiser’ and ‘Leprechaun.’
‘The Collection’ opens on November 30, just in time for Christmas. Bring the kids!
