    "If you like horror type movies you really will enjoy this one. The writer and director of Saw made this one so it had a similar style. I can't say it was a great movie but it was a fun 2 hours."

    "I am a horror film fanatic and the Saw series is one of my favorites. I have been having a hard time lately finding a good film to scratch my horror itch. A friend recommended the film The Collection and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it. If you are a horror nut like me I would give The Collection a watch. You won't be let down!"


Did you know that the runtime of all the Saw movies from Saw to Saw VII adds up to a total of 666 minutes? In popular culture, the number 666 is often associated with the devil or the antichrist. The main antagonist, John Kramer, who was known throughout the series as the Jigsaw Killer, was a dying man who lived by the philosophy that “those who don’t appreciate life do not deserve to live.” He tests people’s will to live by making them go through fatal and elaborate traps in order to convince them to value their life. Kramer died in the third installment of the franchise. It is a testament to his intelligence that he was able to plan traps in advance of his death – the Jigsaw Killer claimed victim after victim even after the death of his physical form.

The Saw franchise was recognized by Guinness as the most successful horror franchise in 2010. The first six Saw movies earned a total gross of $733,271,976, beating other horror film series like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. Considering that the first Saw movie was supposed to be a straight-to-video release, filmed in 18 days with a budget of only $1 million, the franchise’s success is proof of its greatness.

    "This is a classic "torture porn" film, which is a much better made film than SAW. The acting, story and production values are much higher, and the sense of purpose is more gripping. The events in this film could actually happen, making them scarier, while SAW strains credulity. Fans of SAW will love this film, and I suspect most will end up preferring it."

    "I have seen a few of the Saw movies. I enjoyed the puzzle part of the plot but easily figured it out. Also, I hated the gore. The plot of this movie sounds similar so i would probably not be a huge fan."

    "I don't find Misery to be like saw at all, while they are both great movies in their own right and deal with psychotic individuals I find Misery to be a suspenseful movie, and Saw to be more of a slasher movie. "

    "I love horror films. I think its the best genre of film making. I also love the Saw series of movies. Captivity was just what I needed. The genre is very risqué, but the plot was great. This movie in particular dealt with a top model being forced into a cage and the mental toll it takes on her."

    "Gag is in the same genre as Saw. A unique twist on the movie so it's not an exact knock off. Very thrilling if you're into the horror/thriller type movies. Worth a watch for sure."
