How far can black humor go before it crosses the line into from mere tastelessness into abject inhumanity? And does the fact that I enjoyed immensely this gruesomely mesmerizing film mean I've crossed that line?

An interesting peek inside a world few people even realize, or want to realize, exists.

As distasteful as it is compulsively watchable.

Their ghoulishness is so repugnant it's fascinating.

Ultimately, The Collectors surrenders to the same fascination it documents -- gawking in wonder, if not approval.

The movie has no soul. Watching it is like observing a macabre dog and pony show.

Ultimately [Hobbs's] film doesn't shed much light on the motives that drive Allen, Staton and, by extension, others like them.

It's all very fascinating, but one thing is missing: Hobbs never attempts to probe the minds of Staton ... and Allen to find out what is behind their morbid obsession.

Clumsily managed and trivialized.
