The Collector

From the writers of Saw IV through to Saw VII comes this ruthless, torture-porn horror flick with the tagline: "He always takes one".

For handyman and ex-con Arkin (Josh Stewart), a job fixing up a quiet home with it's family occupants on vacation is an 'opportunity'. Inside the house is a safe, and inside the safe is a gem – his only hope for repaying a debt to his ex-wife and keeping what’s left of his family intact. Unfortunately for Arkin, inside the house is also a box containing the latest addition to a collection catalogued in blood, bones and tears. As the seconds tick down to midnight, Arkin becomes a reluctant hero – trying to save the family he came to rob who are trapped by a masked 'Collector' in a maze of lethal invention.

Ah, torture porn. Filling the gap in the horror market since whenever it was that Japanese horror films ceased being relevant. This entry into the sub-genre is a pretty much a textbook example of the style, its perceived strengths and more frequently its glaring flaws.

With both feet planted firmly on the sticky accelerator of the torture-porn vehicle, The Collector is a surprisingly stylish and confident high-concept thriller.

A ludicrous, gratuitous torture porn with an idiotic ending. But within those boundaries it’s absolutely at the top of its game.

Offers agony in a vacuum, a villain without a motive and a hero with more personal problems than lines of dialogue.

Either you go for this sort of extreme, senseless gore or you don't. With its plot and lead performance, The Collector is, at least, an unusual specimen.

In the absence of a sturdy, plausible foundation on which to hook all those grisly bits, the film, originally a Dimension release, tends to play out more like a protracted "Saw" outtake reel.

A nerve-fraying new take on the home-invasion horror.

Unless you're a big fan of the genre, The Collector is something you endure rather than enjoy.
