Plays like a collection of outtakes from some "Saw" script that never saw the light of day (or, heaven forbid, has yet to be made).

Felt a little bit dirty watching this ugly looking, stale bit of plotless torture porn.

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's not a classic, but I have a good feeling about The Collector as a new horror villain with a bit of mileage...

Some of the most fiercely inventive and twisted trap-based bloodletting we've had in ages.

Delivers gruesomeness but not a whole lot else.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

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.

Relentlessly bloody and just as relentlessly idiotic deathtrap thriller for the Saw crowd.

Shadows on the Wall

Another relentlessly violent rampage with no discernible point whatsoever.

June 30, 2010
A ludicrous, gratuitous torture porn with an idiotic ending. But within those boundaries it's absolutely at the top of its game.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

'Horror romp' would be an apt description of the 90 minute story, only with the original concept detailed as a burglar breaking into a serial killer's home, it's difficult not to think what might have been.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

This is a crass, silly and baffling slice of torture porn -- with the audience being tortured, chiefly with boredom.

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

It's a truly creepy concept which, inevitably, leaves room for a sequel.

People are cut, tongues meet pliers and at one point a cat gets sliced in half. Beyond that, there's very little here.

A nerve-fraying new take on the home-invasion horror.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Sick is the word.

The Collector must be the laziest horror film of the year - the camerawork stinks, the action's boring and the plot holes are so glaring they wouldn't get past a lobotomised goose.

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.
