Editorial Reviews

In this tale based on the lost North Carolina colony of Roanoke Island the colonists are attacked by three wraiths. The acting governor tries to understand what is happening while the people are being killed off. Finally piecing together half remembered Norse legends and local Native American tales he realizes these are the spirits of 3 viking witches, trapped on the island with the colonists. Can they find a way to end the siege and survive the winter when even the forest is controlled by the wraiths?

Format:DVD
Synopsis: The made for Sci-Fi network film `Lost Colony' stars Adrian Paul in the role of Ananias Dare, the first governor of the first English colony to settle in the New World. Accompanied by his wife Eleanor (Frida Show) the group consists of 117 men, women and children who take up residence on Roanoke Island, Virginia. Shortly after arriving on this island paradise the Dare family is also joined by the birth of a little daughter they appropriately name Virginia.

Their reason for taking up residence on the island is a strategic move to separate and protect themselves from the numerous Native Americans living on the mainland. Little do they know that the island is haunted by an evil group of Viking wraiths set to attack and brutally kill all who invade their profane domain.

Shortly before giving birth Eleanor finds herself plagued by visions of horrible, demonic looking creatures that demand possession of her unborn child. As these unearthly visitations escalate after the birth of her baby in unison with one grisly camp death after another, this company of brave pioneers soon realize that something out of the ordinary is stalking them. If they hope to survive they must discover the secret of these incorporal beings and find a way to stop them before it's too late?

Critique: The '07 release `Lost Colony' delivers some fairly spooky special effects for a made-for-television film and Adrian Paul and Frida Show are both enjoyable and believable. The ending also takes a rather unexpectedly dark turn at the end which may surprise the viewer. On the negative side the storyline unfolds rather slowly in the beginning and when the action finally quickens in the second half of the movie one gets the feeling of being rushed too quickly as important aspects of the storyline are ignored. For example, how in the world did the young English governor become fluid in the ancient Norse language?

4.0 out of 5 stars ADRIAN PAUL...WHAT ELSE DO YOU WANT? December 17, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
THE FEW REVIEWS OF THIS MOVIE ALL SEEM TO BE HARD ON IT. ALL I CAN SAY IS THE EFFECTS ARE VERY GOOD. THE GHOSTS WILL GET THE HAIR ON YOUR ARM TO STAND UP. THE STORY IS A BIT THIN; TRUE. AND THE FINAL SOLUTION TO END THE PROBLEM THE COLONISTS ARE HAVING IS STUPID. (figuring the ghosts cant handle water). BUT AS CHEAPLY AS THIS MOVIE CAN BE HAD AND TO SEE ADRAIN PAUL AGAIN MAKES THIS WORTH THE $$$. IF YOU SAW " NEMESIS GAME " AND WERE DISGUSTED, THIS WILL GET YOU BACK IN ADRAIN PAULS CORNER AGAIN.

2.0 out of 5 stars Be afraid - you can't run and hide like the colonists August 20, 2008
Format:DVD
It's pretty clear when there is a sub-par movie with unrealistic aspirations. The scenes and sets aren't quite as grandiose; the actors aren't really polished with their delivery; the soundtrack is semi-uninspiring, and even the guy who does the voice on the preview isn't quite as deep or enticing. Well, when a straight-to-Sci-Fi movie with hopes of being a potpourri of LAST OF THE MOHICANS, The New World, and some sort of ghostly hocus-pocus CGI (like a poor man's version of the undead army in The Lord of the Rings - The Return of the King gets put together those same aspirations, the results are less than impressive.

Ananias Dare (Adrian Paul) and a colony of settlers on Roanoke Island set up residence looking for a previous colony. The settlers found the bones of one previous colonist, and were separate from the Croatans Indians by only the water.

Ananias and his wife Eleanor (Frida Show) have a baby named Virginia when Eleanor begins to have visions of poorly CGI'd ghosts. Soon thereafter, crops die, colonists begin disappearing in the forest, visions and psychosis seem to become rampant, and the chief of the Croatans warns of an evil presence on the island that killed the previous inhabitants.

With less than rapt attention I fought through the majority of Lost Colony. The poor accents in a time-piece movie where evidently a result of the actors being told removing the 'r' from words constituted an English accent.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Lost Colony: The Wraiths of Roanoke" August 4, 2014
Format:DVD
"Lost Colony: The Wraiths of Roanoke" is a made-for-TV movie based on the lost North Carolina colony of Roanoke Island in 1587. The lost Roanoke Colony has long been a part of history that has fascinated me, and when I heard about this movie addressing the "lost colony" I knew I needed to check this movie out. Now, before the review it must be noted that this movie is indeed a Sci-Fi movie; the movie was not released theatrically, and suffers from a lack of budget to be sure.

The premise of the movie is what exactly happened between 1587-1590 to the colony on Roanoke Island. While scientists have long tried to reach a consensus opinion on the disappearance, the Sci-Fi channel decided in 2007 to give us their take on the perplexing disappearance of 115 colonists. Theories abound with attacks by the Indians and Spanish wrecking the colony, but the movie offers another opinion: the colonists are attacked and eventually murdered by three wraiths of Viking decent. I'm not a fan of low-grade B-rated horror/Sci-Fi movies, especially on the Sci-Fi channel, but The plot of the movie is actually pretty well thought out and executed. The acting and special FX are low-budget and often times deter an otherwise worthy attempt, but they never really derail the movie the way you may expect. Adrian Paul does a pretty decent acting job in the film as Ananias Dare, and he remains a pretty bright spot for an otherwise suffering cast. The movie may not have been a monster box-office smasher in 2007, but for what it is, the movie is actually pretty entertaining.

"Lost Colony: The Wraiths of Roanoke" is actually a pretty entertaining and well thought out B-grade Sci-Fi movie. It's not going to blow anyone out of the water with FX and glitz, but it was a pretty decent attempt at debunking an over 300-year old mystery.

Rented this for a scary movie night, but it turned out to be a snooze fest. Bad acting, bad graphics, sketchy plot and gaps in the story which was far fetched and disappointing. Read more
