The Collector is an abstract horror film following the convoluted pathway of Elliot who awakes one day in a crowded street destitute and begging for scraps of food. Finding his way to a derelict house he ekes out a primal existence controlled by the powerful human necessity to survive. Casting a belligerent shadow over Elliot is the Collector who by rolls of dice alters the path of our unfortunate hero with every intention of sending him to his doom.

Winner of the Southern Shorts Award for Excellence in Acting (Terry in Evil’s Evil Cousin) | “Here the main focus is on the dying man, while the skinny reporter (excellent Daniel Booroff) moonlights as Floyd’s sincere, would-be saviour (dotting things down in his notebook while dangling from a ledge in his tragi-farcical rescue mission)” – The Independent (5 stars) | “A word too for Daniel Booroff, who is utterly convincing as reporter Skeets Miller, perhaps the only decent one left when the media circus picks up” – broadwayworld.com (5 stars)
