The Collector ~ Movie Review (spoiler)

I have always been a huge fan of horror, not usually super gruesome but horror. Nightmare on Elm street, Halloween. I haven't seen too many good horror movies lately. Could be a combination of being too busy and also that there are not many out there anymore. The last good one I saw was Last house on the Left.

Last night hubby came home from work with a movie in hand and said "Want to cuddle down and watch this together?" so of course I said "yes" since I jump at all opportunities to spend time together.

After watching this I said to hubby "I really need to review this". haha first thing that comes to my mind most of the time in the last year is I need to review this. Good or Bad. I like to share with you my opinion.

If you want to see this movie then please don't read any further as my review will spoil the movie.

A little bit about the movie: This is from IMDB

"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 Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil "


I didn't read the back of the movie case so watching this movie I had no idea what it was about. The teaser came and went, then the intro credits appeared. The movie started with a guy (who we found out was Arkin) fixing doors and windows in the huge house where a family with a little girl and teenage girl lived. Then storyline or what little of it showed Arkin meeting his daughter and wife in a bowling alley, where I assumed his wife works. His wife was waiting for Arkin to give her money so she could pay loan sharks. Arkin's pay wasn't enough so he left to go talk to a guy he has been working with (a thief) to get the burglary done tonight before midnight.

The burglary was to happen in the house we were introduced to Arkin in the beginning. Arkin then finds himself in the house with a crazy killer who has boggey trapped the house with animal traps, knives, acid on floors etc. This is maybe 15-20 minutes into the film. Now the rest of the film is Arkin trying to get out while looking for the little girl. The family cat is stuck in the acid and gets ripped in half when Arkin trys to get it out. This movie was a total gruesome torture movie something like Saw, pin in the ear when trying the phone, fish hooks from the ceiling. There really wasn't a storyline just a maze of gruesome torture. The movie looked like it was going to finish happy but then the ambulance carrying Arkin was hit by something, turns out it was the killer in his van and Arkin was taken in a box by the killer.

There you have it, the whole movie. The ending leaves it open for a sequel but I don't think I will be wasting time to watch it.
