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

The Collector urban legend is really a catch-all legend for creepy hermetic neighbors that may be doing something horrifying inside their dungeon-like basements. The most common "Collector" legend is the neighbor who collects human body parts and proudly displays them in mason jars. In Russia, the Collector urban legend has a bright future because it played out in real life. Its new mascot is local Russian historian Anatoly Moskvin, who stole corpses from cemeteries in dozens of towns east of Moscow. According to police, he dug up at least 29 corpses and made dolls out of them-life-sized faceless female dolls with platinum blond wigs. See more »

This movie is by far one of the best horror movies I've seen, and I believe the best to actually hit theaters.
While there is a lot of violence and gore the movie relies on suspense and really making you feel the characters fear.
It has the creepy vibe that The Strangers gave off and the intelligence of the Saw movies. This is NOT your everyday, run of the mill slasher movie that is equal to 90 minutes of random blood splattering.
You actually think and this film makes sense, 90% of the time anyway. Most horror movies you watch and sit there thinking how stupid the protagonist is but in The Collector he actually acts as most people would in reality.
The best thing about this movie is the over all creepy feeling it gives you with its realistic plot.
It is without a doubt the creepiest, scariest horror movie of modern times.
