The Collector (2009)
The worst movie I have ever seen
This movie was by far one of the most horrendous I've ever seen. The plot was barely existent, the characters so extremely cliché, the antagonist looks so ridiculously stupid and has insane strength, the plot holes reveal themselves every 5 minutes, and the abysmal ending that I knew was coming when they finally escaped the house. The stupidity of the protagonist and all the other characters also.
My review will contain spoilers, but trust me this movie should only be ever be watched by the most evilest people in the world So we have an ex con with a newly found attitude, who plans to break into a house that he's currently working inside of when the family plan to go on holiday, so he can pay off his girlfriends debt so ykno, shes not murdered.
First plot hole. Which family tells their workers that they are going on holiday, knowing the house will be abandoned? Nevermind that, lets ignore it for now.
Upon arriving at the scene, when going to work on the safe the protagonist hears footsteps, and finds the house booby trapped.
Lets ignore the fact that the protagonist never seen any traps while making his way to the safe, another plot hole. But lets also concentrate on how the antagonist managed to set up so many traps in such little amount of time.
It then becomes a 60 minute fest of the protagonist trying to help the family survive, escape, and having encounters with the killer multiple times.
Acid that corrodes anything it touches, yet doesn't corrode the wood its on? The killer no hearing the hero of the story creeping about? The killer being intelligent enough to set up all of these traps, yet continuously steps on a floorboard giving any people who might be alluding him some indication of where he is? The killer having enough strength to throw anyone around, despite being a small guy that you see at the start of the movie. The hero having many attempts to kill him, but decides to run off.
The killer getting caught in one of his own traps, a chandelier with about 5-6 nicely sized knifes, yet the killer manages to get up fine, thows it off of him without cutting himself, and if anything, is even more badass.
I'll stop there, if I listed EVERY fault I'd be here typing for another hour or so, thats about under half of them.
I mean, there is stretching beyond believable, and then there's really just taking the mick. This movie goes beyond everything I've ever seen. I enjoy horror and some gore as much as anyone, but what I can't stand is 2d characters that have an iq identical to their age, no plothole or reasons why the killings are happening, and being expected to believe this is realistic.
The sad irony is Freddy Kreuger is far more easier to swallow and believable as to what could happen in todays world, than this movie expects you to swallow, yet this movie is supposed to be based on real life, its that bad.
I suggest avoiding this movie like the plague, unless you just want to watch mindless killings happening, in which case I suggest you get help if seeing blood by someone being stabbed is what you consider good. Movies have to have some sort of character depth, realism (even in surrealistic horrors you have this), story line and above all no glaring plot holes that make it very hard to enjoy when trying to enjoy the movie.
Awful, awful, awful, awful, awful.
