Directed by Marcus Dunstan
A burglar breaks into a home that a twisted serial killer has booby-trapped. First Arkin finds himself mistaken for the killer, then he becomes the target of the titular psycho, whose M.O. is killing all but one of his victims and then kidnapping the surviving party. Will Arkin end up a living victim or a dead one? Or will he turn the tables on the collector? Originally intended as a prequel to SAW, this relentlessly vicious home invasion tale will please fans of harder-edged torture flicks and psycho thrillers like Shudder faves ANAMORPH, ANGST, and CHOOSE.

Loved nearly every moment of it. Stylish and awesome visuals that close in on the cat and mouse game played between "The Collector" and Josh Stewart's anti-heroic thief, Arkin. Great kills and traps. It was a good decision that they didn't make this the Saw prequel because the characteristics shown by the Collector are extremely different compared to Jigsaw. The sequel, The Collection, wasn't that bad and it could've been a bit better but it is a fun watch. The Collected (The Collector 3) should get made, I guess since everyone still wants more. I feel that the ending to The Collection was good enough to end things off.
Surprisingly nice to see a somewhat original take on the slasher genre. Great movie!
At least now we know what Kevin McCallister did when he great up.
Hats off, that was impressive.
