Desperate to repay his debt to his ex-wife, an ex-con plots a heist at his new employer's country home, unaware that a second criminal has also targeted the property, and rigged it with a series of deadly traps.
After kidnapping and brutally assaulting two young women, a gang unknowingly finds refuge at a vacation home belonging to the parents of one of the victims: a mother and father who devise an increasingly gruesome series of revenge tactics.
When the Chase family moves to an isolated house in the middle of nowhere in Detroit, Arkin is hired to fix the windows and the doors. Later he meets his daughter and his wife that has a debt with dangerous sharks and needs money, but his week payment is not enough to pay her debts. Arkin plots to heist the safe of Michael Chase during the night to raise the necessary money. However, when he arrives in the house, he finds that a sadistic criminal has imprisoned the family and planted traps everywhere. Arkin seeks a way out of the deadly house to save his life. Written by

One of the best thriller/horror movies in the past 5 years
The people who have given this movie low scores truly don't appreciate a good movie of this kind. Movies this good are few and far between. The story is unique and keeps you interested throughout. The cinematography is creative and often very clever. The acting is top-notch, especially in the main character. You can totally sense and feel the panic and horror he feels.
The Collector drips with a tense atmosphere, but also manages to disturb with its graphic and violent scenes. Fans of the genre - do NOT listen to the morons who gave this movie a low score. Watch it, and you will NOT be disappointed.
Yours truly, A true horror fan.
