a great looking film sings the same old tune
9 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just saw COLLECTOR a few days ago, at the Washington DC Independent Film Festival. It was featured in the evening horror session, which, if you ask me, has some of the best short films of the entire festival.

The late Brad Renfro is terrific in this film, conveying paranoia and a level of nervousness I have not seen lately. His performance is truly great. The other actor was okay, but maybe that's because I've seen other actors play the devil before, and more effectively.

The film itself is great looking, with some of the best cinematography of any short film. However, the twist at the end is very old and unoriginal, and left me wondering why anyone would even bother trying to pull it off in the year 2008. I mean, after the SIXTH SENSE and THE OTHERS, is there really much of a thrill to be had in a story where the main character discovers that he's dead? An okay film with great cinematography and terrific performance.
