The Collector

de Marcus Dunstan



Its website’s restricted access should already give us a good clue as to what The Collector has in store for us, as much as or more than discovering the track record of the people responsible for it, the screenwriters of the three parts of the zany Feast saga and the last three of the incombustible Saw. For better or for worse, Saw was a pioneer of torture porn and Marcus Dunstan has had time to improve the formula and debut as a filmmaker with an ingenious carrousel of outrages starring a masked man with a curious hobby and a house full of deadly traps. A thief has just snuck into it and if there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that it’s not going to be easy for him to get out.
