The Collector has a strong co-lead in Josh Stewart; empathy for this wayward character and a depth that some deftly-handled backstory provides is very welcome.

It takes the rotting corpse of torture-porn out of the abandoned warehouse and Slovakian ruins and dumps it smack dab in the middle of your safe and comfy home.

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

It has a noticeably 80s retro vibe, while the sheer inventiveness of the slayings paper over a very thin and familiar storyline.

Dunstan makes his directorial debut with this fast-paced, suspenseful horror that wastes no time on pointless exposition, but instead tosses plenty of genuinely tense moments into this primal fear-fest.

Cat lovers: this is not your film - a nasty fate awaits the household moggy. Alas, poor Tiddles.

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

Saw meets The Strangers as introduced by Rube Goldberg. Oh, and there's spiders.

A mean-spirited throwback to the nastiest, cruelest home-invasion movies of the '70s and '80s ... And I mean that in the best possible way:

It's just a good-ol-fashioned bloodbath. Rasputin could get behind that. And occasionally, I can too.

Amid all the blood and punishment [it] works the suspense chain along with a wrenching soundtrack and a gritty film stock that harkens back to the old horror flicks of the 70s

Dunstan directs his first feature with a good eye, but the material doesn't feel as realistic as the duo might have hoped.
