This is one of those cat and mouse game type horror films, which makes for some suspense, but, after a while, becomes tedious. The Collector ain't a bad movie, on the contrary, fans of bloody torture while adore this flick. But the character development is very thin and I would really have liked to know, with more details, the killer's motivation, although this may be explained later in the sequel. This movie is a lot like Saw, in fact it was written by the same people, so you can be sure it's gonna be a very gory flick, with over the top kills, which is it. But it's a descent horror movie and I also recommend it for gore hounds !!

An indie horror series that is extremely underrated. The first film I really liked as it has genuine terror in a cat and mouse plot setting. The gore is also pretty sweet and you can tell it had a Saw influence. The one downfall is the acting from some of the actors and actresses is subpar but it's still a great watch

Awesome movie, creepy, great acting! There was torture and gore but that made the movie even scarier. I was in the edge of my seat for most of the movie!

The Collector has a compelling premise (burglar breaks into a serial killer's home) that quickly devolves into standard torture porn fare.

"He always takes one"

Sangre, tripas y violencia que no tienen una historia creíble para apoyar todo el gore. No sólo asquerosa sino sin ninguna motivación y el villano es debil porque ni siquiera da miedo. Escena fortuita donde se muestran senos innecesariamente. No tiene ninguna cualidad redimible.

A breath of fresh air in the recently stagnant slasher horror sub-genre. The Collector brings in a new psychopath with a new gimmick and it is well worth your time.

The collector is a typically frustrating horror film, focusing on needless gore and creating deaths from stupidity rather than ingenuity. It plays with ideas that break the follow, and has character play out scenes unrealistically and predictably. In its silliness, it is a bore and an effort to watch.

Really exhibits the worst tropes of the slasher-horror genre, but it does have a few pros: Josh Stewart is easy to empathize with in the lead roll. The soundtrack kicks ass. While the camerawork is mediocre for the most part, it has some occasionally outstanding moments.

Though it does feature some inventive kills and a creepy villain, The collector relies too heavily on blood baths and begging comparisons to better torture porns, particularly Saw (this was actually going to be a prequel at first hand).

It took me a couple of viewings to appreciate this. I don't care for the Saw franchise, which this was intended to be part of. This is more atmospheric and features an intriguing main character that is a formidable match for the titular villain.

Could it be that others are finally learning from the makers of Korean horror? This would suggest so. This is one of the nastiest horrors I've seen in the English language. This isn't particularly scary but it is disturbing. Nice one mr director.

This movie was just wickedly cruel and I loved it for that.

Not a bad little horror flick - almost made the 8/10 but not quite. Billed as a potential prequel to the Saw series, this movie demonstrates why with its relentless use of torture like booby traps. The scene is all set up very nicely with a young criminal intent on stealing from the family he is working for, only to find that someone is intruding within the house at the same time. The latter burglar however, is looking to take something far more valuable than a previous gemstone, as he wants the wilting body of one of the households victims. Contrary to a burglars normal emotions, the young (more humane) villain then takes it upon himself to try and save the family from this more psychopathic invader, only to see his efforts in vain as the bodies fall victim to several of the innovative death traps laid about the house. You can really see how this was potentially linked in with the Saw franchise, but not enough focus was on the killing machines mentality for me. Saw is about an intelligent yet deluded mastermind, whereas little is established with regards to the identity of this assailant and he appears to kill for killings sake, and for sport, as opposed to the 'tests' that Jigsaw establishes. I guess it's a tad disappointing that the ending doesn't go as far as to explain who the murderer was, and why he was planning such drastic measures, but I'm always up for a sequel if that's what it was heading towards. This was much better than I had predicted, and is staking a claim to be one of the more credible horrors of late, yet I do feel it was a good decision to keep it separate from the Saw franchise, as it is missing a touch of intellectual class that those movies add.
