Plot Summary:
"Arkin escapes with his life from the vicious grips of "The Collector" during an entrapment party where he adds beautiful Elena 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."

This sequel went straight to DVD in the UK which was a shame as it’s one of the best horror films I’ve seen in quite some time.

Picking up where the original left off, the titular baddie still has Arkin locked in a box - but he also has his sights set on a new victim, a young woman named Elena. During an awesome set-piece at an exclusive party, Elena sets Arkin free but is captured. Arkin is then forced into helping an elite team free Elena from the confines of a booby trapped warehouse.

I really enjoyed this. It was much slicker than its predecessor, ultimately serving as a perfect example of how to write a screenplay. There’s no fat on these bones – Dunstan & Melton have now perfected their craft (slaving away on Saw sequels) ensuring that the audience are taken on a lightening quick thrill ride.

The scene is set, the characters are introduced and we get on with the story. There’s no mucking around and the film doesn’t outstay its welcome.

I liked the cast, the story, the setting, the set pieces, the soundtrack – I loved every minute of it. I was only sad that it was over so quickly.

OVERALL SUMMARY
This film seems to have divided fan opinion (they either love it or hate it) but I loved it! It was easily better than half of the saw sequels for starters.
