Decades before films like Se7en and Silence of the Lambs began disturbing audiences, William Wyler presented the film that would change the genre forever. The Collector is now finally being released by Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment.
Obsessives come in all variations. Some quoting baseball statistics, others emulating their favorite television characters. For Freddie Clegg, the obsession was butterfly collecting; an obsession that occupied his time so much, he had lost the ability to deal with society. When Miranda catches his eye, he responds the only way he knows how – by adding her to his collection.
Columbia TriStar has done an excellent job of creating a new anamorphic widescreen transfer of the film and preserving the original mono soundtrack, but unfortunately as is common with films of this age, no real supplemental materials exist outside of a theatrical trailer which has been included on this disc.
With a suggested retail price of $24.95, you’ll be able to add this title to your ever growing collection.
