QUICK TAKE:
Horror: A serial killer keeps one victim from each of his killing sprees, but picks the wrong one this time when the young woman's wealthy father hires a team of mercenaries to rescue her.
PLOT:
The Collector (RANDALL ARCHER), a serial killer who slaughters large numbers of people at one time but keeps one victim alive to bring back to his lair, is back on the hunt. This time around, he has rigged an entire nightclub with booby traps that slice and dice dozens of young revelers when sprung. The lone survivor is Elena (EMMA FITZPATRICK), who actually triggered The Collector's traps when she found Arkin (JOSH STEWART), the lone survivor from the first film, trapped in one of the killer's boxes.

The Collector picks the wrong victim in Elena in that she is the daughter of a millionaire named Peters (CHRISTOPHER McDONALD). Peters decides to sidestep the police altogether and assign his own mercenary security team to track down The Collector and rescue his girl. The team is led by Lucello (LEE TERGESEN), a longtime employee who looks on Elena as family. The other members are a band of weapons experts and hired guns with such names as Paz, Lin, and Wally (SHANNON KANE, BRANDON MOLALE, and ANDRE ROYO, respectively).

Using Arkin as a guide, Lucello and his team storm a rundown, abandoned hotel on the outskirts of the city, but quickly become trapped themselves and subject to The Collector's traps. They also find a collection of scarred and brainwashed victims in near zombie-like states who they have to wade through to get to Elena. Among them is Abby (ERIN WAY), who is secretly on the side of The Collector and puts everyone's lives in further jeopardy.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
