These films have a SAW feel to them in a way. The second film is brutal and gory. The first film is tense and foreboding. Both are well made and worthy of multiple viewings. I see something new everytime.
I always watch them back to back - they play well together.

The Collector is certainly one bad Mo'Fo.
