#125: The Collector, 2009.
This is a very Saw-esque horror film; a man who intends to rob a family, is forced to face a murderer known as the collector. The house is riddled with torturous and murderous booby traps and the robber then has to decide whether to leave or try to save the family. In my opinion, this sort of horror film is a bit of a cop out; struggling to find a new way of scaring people, film makers have instead resorted to pointless torture and violence to disgust the audience.
But in fairness the film wasn’t too bad; I mean the concept was a bit more original than the last Saw film was. Whilst I still don’t approve of this sort of horror, I didn’t hate it. However, I hold a bit of contempt for the ending of the film; one of those when you think the hero has escaped, the murderer returns to get him anyway sort of things.
In short: Another sadistic horror film on the same lines as the Saw films, with some ingenious ways of killing, but a poor and irritating ending.
