Let me start by saying that although this movie has the same writers and director as the first movie, this movie is way better.  We’re glad we gave it another chance.

The Collector is a pussy as usual and stronger than ever.  We still had to watch several dogs die and the killer’s motive is still unclear.  But this all ends well, unlike the first movie.

The traps were good again.  There’s a lovely script, an excellent cast, exceptional special effects and we even really dug the story.  The opening was memorable.  The ending was a blast.  It was just so so much better than the original.

If you’ve watched the original, watch this one too, no matter what you thought of it.  If you haven’t watched the original, you can totally just jump into this one.  It’s not like you have to have seen the first movie.

My score: 73.  DJ’s score: 58.
