OV Shocktober: The Collector (2009) [First Viewing]

The Collector - Dark

Buy it on Amazon!

The Collector is a movie that I have been meaning to watch for a while. I was really intrigued by the concept of the protagonist being a man breaking into a house, only to have to save the family from a sadistic killer. I was hopeful that it would lead to a bit more actual storytelling than we are used to in this genre.

What held me back from watching it, though, was the widespread opinion that it was simply a Saw rip-off. Well, I finally watched it last night. Read on to see what I thought and check out the Shocktober 2013 page of the blog for more Horror-related content. Continue reading

It should be, considering he’s getting married next weekend. Despite his extremely busy schedule, he has agreed to share his Shocktober 2013 experience with all of us. Here is the first installment of Mike’s Shocktober Journal entries. You can find Mike on Twitter @IAmMikeWhite and hear him on The Obsessive Viewer Podcast!

A Short Introduction to Shocktober on ObsessiveViewer.com

shocktober

Welcome to The Obsessive Viewer’s first Shocktober. This month on the blog, I (with some help from my friends) will put a large emphasis on the horror genre. This is a tradition that has been a big part of my life since 2006, when I started dedicating the month to horror.

Since then, each year the month has grown to a 31-day event where my friends and I dive into a genre that is near and dear to our hearts. Now, for the first time ever, I have a platform to share this sacred tradition with the world. As such, this month you will see an influx in horror-related reviews and posts written by yours truly as well as my podcast co-hosts and blog contributors Mike and Tiny. Continue reading
