The Collector

 (2009)

The Collector Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

Handyman and ex-con Arkin 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 Inquisition as imagined by Rube Goldberg - while trying to rescue the very family he came to rob.

For more about The Collector and the The Collector Blu-ray release, see the The Collector Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Josh Stewart, Madeline Zima, Andrea Roth, Daniella Alonso, Juan Fernández, Diane Ayala Goldner
Director: Marcus Dunstan

The Collector Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Collector's AVC encoded 1080p 2.35:1 image is dark, grimy and grainy, and I'm quite sure that's exactly how director Dunstan wanted it. The Blu-ray looks rather spectacular if you take the post processed images into account. The opening, quasi-hallucinogenic scenes, with pumped contrast and bizarre colors, pop very nicely. The beautiful location shots during the day also boast impressive detail and really sharp clarity. Once we get to the main act, things turn decidedly darker, though black levels are good and contrast remains strong. What may bother some people, especially in the treated shots where it shows more noticeably, is the omnipresent grain. Some of the scenes bathed in green light bring the grain to the forefront in amounts that almost approximate digital noise, but I personally found the effect quite in keeping with the film's unsettling ethos. While this overpowering grain gives at least the illusion of softness some of the time, there's really very sharp detail throughout the film.


The Collector Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

For all the qualms I personally have about The Collector as a film, no one can fault its stupendous sonic design, which arrives on Blu-ray in one of the most robust DTS-HD MA 5.1 mixes in recent memory. From the first moments of the film, where beautifully immersive sylvan crickets are undercut by the ominous rumble of LFE, you know you're in for a rollicking good time with this soundtrack. There's virtually no scene that doesn't include some really fun pan effects as various people are impaled on objects or blades come careening out of nowhere to do their nasty business. The soundtrack is full of source cues, some with spooky Goth pop tunes, but a lot of it with a thumping, bass heavy techno feel that perfectly mirrors the claustrophobic horror of the images. A lot of the central portion of this film plays out with virtually no dialogue, so we're left to listen to the multitude of ambient noises as Arkin makes his way gingerly through the booby-trapped mansion, and the fidelity and range of this DTS mix is right there every step of the way.
