A horror film that was originally meant to be part of the Saw franchise has been branded one of the ‘scariest movies ever’.

The iconic franchise revolves around a fictional serial killer who puts his victims through brutal traps as they fight for survival.

There has been nine Saw movies so far and the franchise has grossed over a billion dollars at the box office.

There was a pitch for a film to come out after Saw III but it was turned down.

However, that didn’t stop the writer to turn it into his own movie – which has now garnered a reputation for how horrific it is.

The Collector follows a man who decides to break in and rob a house in an attempt to clear his financial debts.

However, upon entering the property, he discovers that someone has already broken in and they have a much more sinister intention.

The Collector only scored a rating of 28% on Rotten Tomatoes, but despite its low score fans have praised it for its violence and the performance of the villain.

The concept of The Collector initially stemmed from a planned spin-off of the Saw franchise which would have acted as a prequel.

The box office success of The Collector was enough to garner a sequel too called The Collection which came out in 2012.

A third film was also in the works called The Collected, but this got shelved in 2021.
