Watch The Collection Online : Before the movie, I had a minor conversation with the guy next to me, where we ended up trading Georgia city crime stories. His, things involving drawn guns and carjacking in Savannah; mine, the spate of fully random violence in neighborhoods around my former Atlanta residence, including the guy who tried to kidnap a woman by snatching Watch the Collection online her from her porch and stuffing her into his car trunk. That stuff is faceless, and scary, and weird. As a character, the Collector is faceless and weird, but not scary at all. The first 99% of the film features not one action that pegs him as anything other than a construct, and by the time we do get a little humanity out of the guy, it was far too late for me.Download The Collection Movie : That makes The Collection safe, and easy to watch as a piece of disposable entertainment. Indeed, that seems to be exactly the point, and that’s fine. I can’t ding the movie for the slight ambition, but I can for failing to craft more than one or two characters who really feel as if they belong in the film’s world. There’s one character who factors into a strange , a woman who has been held by the Collector for a while. She adds some of the most genuinely weird and creepy nuance to the story, but doesn’t have a lot of influence over the action in the long run.Watch The Collection Movie : The slasher spirit that made successes out of franchises such as Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street is still alive in many films, but Dunstan often treats the Collector like a killer in a giallo film rather than a slasher villain. So he sticks to the shadows, and is shot in fragmented style. We see hands, feet, the back of his head, and the occasional close-up of his beady, dead eyes. That’s meant to crate the illusion of menace, but for me it prevented the guy from ever cohering into something to be scared of. There’s an audience for that sort of lightweight horror/action, and five or ten minutes into The Collection you’ll probably know whether you’re part of it, or not.
