Gruesome to the max. Not recommended, but obviously the director has a modicum of talent. Paul Chambers, CNN.

...a gritty and downright brutal horror-movie endeavor...

By shaving the plot and motivation to almost nothing, director Marcus Dunstan is pretty much fessing up his understanding that all anybody was ever interested in in the Saw films is the torture porn.

Watching The Collector becomes an experience not so much of dread as big virtual ouches.

If you didn't already know The Collector was written by two Saw franchise hacks, and directed by one of them, it would soon become as obvious as a fish hook to the face.

How I clamor for a contemporary horror film that understands that extreme gore does not equal genuine scariness.

Once things get rolling it's actually decent. But the first 25 minutes are flat and boring. Can't quite recommend it.

This ultra-sadistic, efficiently single-minded Grand Guignol endurance test plays like something cooked up by a clever 14-year-old devotee of Bloody-Disgusting.com.

I was somewhat startled to discover that it actually has a few intriguing qualities amidst the blood and guts.

A sub-Saw knockoff that manages to be brutal yet monotonous, not to mention monstrously unpleasant.

This is the sort of cheap bilking that separates completists from masochists; the brief suffering onscreen is nothing compared with the agony scary-movie buffs will feel after being so thoroughly cheated.

Exactly the movie you'd expect from a couple of guys whose main claim to fame is having written the last couple Saw movies.

One trap leaves a woman impaled on a movie screen, producing an image that succinctly if literally sums up a genre's cynicism.

A simple, basic, fast-paced horror thriller that wastes nary a frame on unnecessary set-up, languid exposition, or pointless subplots.

There's some torture, a lot of blood, some deaths, the usual routine, but without any suspense or ingenuity.
