The writers intended the movie to be a Saw prequel, but the idea was declined. See more »
(at around 21 mins) When Arkin first breaks into the house, he uses lock pick tools. The straight flat one he inserts in the bottom and the jagged one on top. However the jagged edges are pointing downward and would not be able to click the tumblers. See more »
I have seen all the big summer blockbusters and I have to say they were good some even great but I've grown a little old on all the CGI. The Collector yes it does take away from SAW and HOSTLE but in its on way is worth a viewing. Yes the story has many plot holes and it leaves you guessing on why and how but if your a big gore and horror fan then this is the movie to see. It holds nothing back in form of gore and torture. Cheaply done and yet very well executed. No big name actors or big budget effects. In my opinion its what has been missing this summer. I would like the second part as in SAW 2 to answer all of the questions that this movie left us guessing. I look forward to seeing The Collector character again!
