Marcus Dunstan's directorial debut, The Collector, played theaters way back at the end of July (which seems like a lifetime ago at this point...). After its brief theatrical run, a quick turnaround to DVD seemed imminent--only here it is, the end of December, and we still have no clue as to when the film might turn up on disc.

Video ETA is on the case and while they don't have an official date for the disc's debut, they are listing April of 2010 as the tentative date. April 2010 is a long way away. I want instant gratification, dammit. Naturally, there are no details about the presentation or extras yet.

The Collector is another effort from Saw sequel scribes Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan. It was once supposed to be a Saw prequel but morphed into its own unique project somewhere along the line in the development cycle. Josh Stewart stars in the film, which is about a man who sets out to commit robbery and soon discovers that the house he's targeted is already occupied by a sadistic madman who's taken the residents hostage and booby-trapped the entire home.

The film only made 7.7 million dollars at the box office, but should find an appreciative audience in the home video market. We'll bring you the official release date once it's announced.
