I haven’t really been following Marcus Dunstan’s “The Collector”, another one of those horror movies about a brilliant killer who gets off terrorizing and killing people, and the poor schlubs who get in their way and end up dead as a result. The film is from the same people currently giving you the latest installments of the “Saw” franchise, so right away, you know the killer ain’t getting knocked off at the end of this one, and if the Red Band trailer below is any indication, there will be one of those “killer pops out of nowhere to finish the job” endings. Hey, it’s not like I’ve seen the movie or read the script or anything, but come on, isn’t that how these franchise-wannabe horror flicks always end?
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.
Starring Madeline Zima, Andrea Roth, Daniella Alonso, Robert Wisdom, Josh Stewart, Michael Reilly Burke, Gregory Alan Williams, Juan Fernández, Haley Pullos, and Diane Goldner. Directed by Marcus Dunstan (“Feast”).
