Review of Sleeperkid’s WorldA COLLECTOR’S STORY 20 – 22 Mins

monroeWe fade in on an unconscious Monroe, AKA: an innocent girl with latent super-powers kidnapped by The Collector for a display of strength.  Unfortunately for Monroe, the only way for her powers to manifest is after pain and fear of death.  In walk two female thugs (Jessie Belle and Torey Payne), hired to simply beat the holy heck out of the young victim!  What follows is exactly that, as both baddies take glee in destroying Monroe via a variety of brutal tactics and finishers. After a thorough thrashing, the bad girls decide it’s to end it for Monroe.  They point two handguns at the young girl’s head as Monroe begs for them to stop…to leave her alone.  She whimpers as they count down.  Her eyes shut in fear…then suddenly open, her pupils red as blood.   Her fear is gone, and the girl sitting on ground is no longer Monroe.  Whoever this new creature is, she has some serious power.  Torey and Jessie find themselves unable to move their bodies as Monroe forces them to knock each other out with their own guns! This new heroine smiles as she forces her torturers to wake up, choking them and slamming them into each other using her mind.  The thugs fall unconscious yet again as Monroe stands against a wall and closes her eyes.  She enters Jessie’s mind and forces her to knock her partner out with a piledriver…even though Jessie is completely unconscious the whole time!   She then forces Torey’s sleeping body to do the same to Jessie as her grin widens.  She commands Torey to go into a deep sleep and goes in for the kill. Monroe forces both criminals to their knees and unleashes a pair of PSYCHIC BLADES.  Jessie and Torey whimper and beg for mercy, but that ship has sailed.  Monroe plunges the blades into the back of the girls’ necks, destroying their nervous system with a single blow.  The thugs collapse to the ground, convulsing, moments before Monroe disintegrates them with a single touch. Monroe’s eyes open a few seconds later and she’s back to normal…and terrified.  She knows what she’s done and has no idea what compelled her to do it.  She tries to escape but the room fills with a sleeping gas that puts her out in seconds. The Collector, it appears, has added yet another heroine to his ever-expanding roster.

Not too far off the “Right where I found her” idea, Monroe is put through a hell of a beating, which is the majority of the video and my favorite section, but unlike Luna vs Anabelle, when things turn around, there is still quite a show to be seen. But first, Monroe’s powers has to be activated, which is a really fun idea and is done very well. Jessie and Torey really put Monroe through a hell of a beating, with nice pro style moves and plenty of great trash talking. As we have all become very used to, Monroe yet again delivers an excellent jobber performance. Once enough has been done to active Monroe’s powers, she dominates Jessie and Torey without even laying a hand on them, using only her mind. I am quite a fan of super powers and SKW always does a great job making the look great. The coup de grâce is a definite highlight as the super powered Monroe with a little help of some excellent special FX, brings and end to the former dominate team and better yet, Monroe, once she powers are deactivated, is KO’d and collected. Some really great ideas, and a great cast of performers did a wonderful job bring it all to life.

Overall Score: 9.5/10
