The lead time wasn’t really there, so hopefully all of us horror sites have given you enough awareness of The Collector to go see it in theaters this weekend. In addition to adding our review, beyond the break you’ll find three clips, the red-band trailer and blood band trailer (age-gated) from Marcus Dunstan’s film that he co-wrote with Patrick Melton. The film was pitched as a prequel to Saw and became it’s own beast thanks to Dimension Films. Freestyle Releasing will put the film in theaters this Friday.
The slasher follows the story of handyman and ex-con Arkin, who aims to repay a debt to his ex-wife by robbing his new employer’s country home. Unfortunately for Arkin, a far worse enemy has already laid claim to the property – and the family. As the seconds tick down to midnight, Arkin becomes a reluctant hero trapped by a masked “Collector” in a maze of lethal invention – the Spanish Inquisition as imagined by Rube Goldberg – while trying to rescue the very family he came to rob.
