To go along with the three clips we’ve already posted and the leaked blood-soaked YouTube clips, come another two looks at Freestyle Releasing’s slasher film The Collector (review) that arrives in theaters everywhere this Friday. Directed by Marcus Dunstan from a script he co-wrote with partner Patrick Melton, the film was pitched as a prequel to Saw and carries many of the characteristics from Lionsgate’s franchise. Fans of Jigsaw MUST see this on 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.
