Ok the plot for this film is a bit dumb. A handy man has been working in a family's home he plans on stealing a very precious diamond from. On the day the family leave for their vacation he returns to the house a few hours later in the evening only to find a masked maniac is torturing the family and has laced the house with traps. just one of the traps he has set would take the amount of time he has had to set up. Basically if you want realism look elsewhere. I personally don't get too hung up on realism in this kind of film so I thoroughly enjoyed it. The maniac is quite menacing and also posesses some awesome knife throwing skills. The look of the movie is very stylish and a lot of the effects are great and quite gory. They seem to use more practical FX than CGI which is refreshing to see. The film held my attention all the way through. Well worth a watch.

'The Collector' is a horror film that released theatrically in 2009 to positive reviews. The moderate box-office success of the feature has caused the makers to plan a sequel. The makers are also the writers of the films 'Saw IV', 'Saw V' & 'Saw VI'. This feature was originally titled 'The Midnight Man' and the script was originally intended to be a 'Saw' prequel but that was all scrapped.

The movie tells the story of Arkin (Josh Stewart) who breaks into his employers house to steal something to pay off a debt. On entering the house, he gets more than he bargained for in the form of an evil serial killer who is already inside tourturing the occupiers and setting up deadly booby traps.

The feature starts off a bit slow but thats the calm before the storm. It then progresses at a furious pace in an atmospheric setting. The movie finally climaxes with a twist.

The movie contains an original story, hightened tension, nail-biting suspense, an exciting cat-and-mouse game, plenty of frights and unexpected traps. Add gory violence to the equation and you've got a top-notch horror.

The flaw is that the characters are not defined well, preventing the audience from connecting with them. It's essential for the audience to connect as the fate of the characters, whatever it may be, becomes more effective.

Josh Stewart is an unlikely hero, however produces a career best performance. The show stealer is the serial killer, The Collector (Juan Fernández) who really makes the movie work. His eery presence combined with his terrifying mask and body mannerisms, was enough to give me the shivers. He is sadistic and a potential horror icon.

The direction provided by Marcus Dunstan who is also the writer of the film is inch perfect.

Format: DVD
Arkin (Josh Stewart) who looks too much like Sean Penn is an ex-con, handy man, second story man, and a safe cracker who loves his 8 year old daughter. His ex-wife needs money ASAP so he opts to rob a place he has been casing as the family has gone away on this dark and stormy night...but wait! There is someone else in the house and Arkin is locked in as he realizes the family never left and are part of an elaborate torture.

Arkin finds out the hard way that the whole house is rigged with debilitating traps and trip wires, something that would make Caulley McCulkin green with envy.

Lots of blood. Good suspense. Good use of soundtrack. If you liked "Saw", then see this.

F-bomb, sex, nudity (Madeline Zima + strip club) torture

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The Collector.
Region 2.
Ratio: 16:9 - 1.78:1.
Cert:18.
Running time 87 minutes.

Trivia.
1)The writers intended the movie to be a Saw prequel, but the idea was declined.
2)Andrea Roth Appeared in the,Robocop Tv series as Diana Powers/Neurobrain.

Plot Synopsis.
The Collector targets an old couple, killing one while stuffing the other in a red trunk & adding him/her to his collection.

When the Chase family moves to an isolated house in the middle of nowhere in Detroit, Arkin is hired to fix the windows & the doors, Later he meets his daughter & his estranged wife that has a debt with dangerous sharks & needs money, but his week payment is not enough to pay her debts.

Arkin plots to heist the safe of Michael Chase during the night to raise the necessary money for his wife, However, when he arrives at the house, he finds that a sadistic criminal known as The Collector has imprisoned the Chase family & has planted traps all over the house, Arkin has a choice either seek a way out of the deadly house & save his own life or attempt to rescue the Chase family from the Collectors deadly traps.

Timelord Thoughts.
This is a decently made B movie horror film that certainly delivers chills & nerve shredding tension & while the use of deadly traps is hardly original this film uses the serial killer theme of a masked psychopath named the Collector who embarks on torturing a family.
