Originally set-up and financed by Dimension Films, "The Collector" was dropped by the cash-strapped studio after they didn't have the funds to release the film. Lidell Entertainment snatched up the rights from Dimension and gave the film a brief, but successful, theatrical run in 2009. See more »

i stumbled upon this movie when i was reading about "the Poughkeepsie Tapes". The rating was just better than average at IMDb but the synopsis of the story seemed interesting enough to give it a shot. And what an adrenaline shot this turned out to be! Arkin cases a house to commit an easy robbery as the house owners are going on a two week trip. he has to clear some old debts for his wife who has loan sharks looking for her. the fun or rather unprecedented thrill and violence start when he steps into the house and finds that there are traps all over the house planted by a sadist. the traps are innovative and the methods of killing people are ingenuous. The gore quotient is pretty high in some scenes so this is definitely not for the squeamish at hear. the dialogs are minimal and the tempo is maintained by the director by the help of kick ass music. The acting is competent. the movie made on a budget of 6 million earned 7 million at the box office and also led to a sequel "the collection" which i plan to check out soon. going to bed with the pleasure that only comes with finding something really good in the most unexpected of places. give this a try. i can guarantee that you will be at the edge of your seat for the better part of 80 minutes. superior stuff.
