When Halloween comes around, movie goers face so many choices of thriller, horror, creepy and zombie movies that have more gore than scare. If you want an explosive, nerve grabbing, riveting horror film from start to finish, The Collection is it.

The Collection premiered on the opening night at the red carpet affair of the 12th Annual Screamfest® (October 12), LA Live Regal Cinemas (1000 West Olympic Blvd., LA, CA). Many of The Collection cast and crew were on hand for photos and interviews, including the film’s star Emma Fitzpatrick.

The Collection, is written by Ryan Rodriguez and directed by Marcus Dunstan (writer of Saw IV, V, VI, Saw 3D: The Final Chapter), who was also on the red carpet along with other Horror celebs like Actress Jessica Cameron, Silent Night (premiere Nov. 30th).

The Collection Synopsis

Arkin, played by Joseph Stewart, escapes with his life from the disturbing, sadistic grips of an entrapment party where he adds beautiful Elena (Emma Fitzpatrick (The Social Network ) to his “Collection.” Instead of recovering from the trauma, Arkin is suddenly abducted from the hospital by mercenaries hired by Elena’s wealthy father. Arkin is blackmailed to team up with the mercenaries and track down The Collector’s booby trapped warehouse and save Elena. Hang on to your popcorn, this Halloween thriller might make you spill it.

If you saw (no pun intended) the 2009 The Collector, also directed by Marcus Dunstan, you’re in for an even more crazy, loud, metal scraping, body crushing thriller that never seems to end.
