Different characters and motivations to be sure.
Though a "collector" is still there, and it is about being kept captive in an enclosed environment I suppose.
Of course there was different sensibility in films of the 60's, so the new ones will have obviously radically departed in style and content.

I mean one could theorise that this film *did* inspire the new one/s, as there are a few common elements...just not sure (haven't seen it in a while) how much of a stretch such a theory would be.
I've found no such information to confirm it was even acknowledged by the makers of the newer ones.

I am a big fan of the 60s film and the novel it is based on but I really can't see any thing in common with the newer film
