Already a worldwide phenomenon with huge media coverage, COLIN is the first zombie movie told from the zombie s perspective, it is a film truly like no other. Our hero Colin is bitten by a zombie; he dies and returns as one of the undead. We follow him as he wanders through suburbia during the throes of a cadaverous apocalypse. Through his encounters, we learn who Colin was and more pertinently, what he has now become. Including a broad daylight zombie versus human street battle, an epic housebound siege and bags of gore. Made for only $75, this is a zombie phenomenon that must not be missed! Filmmaker Marc Price made headlines around the world when his DIY movie gained critical acclaim for being a fresh voice in a well-worn genre and was hailed as redefining no-budget film-making Price taught himself many of the roles needed to make the film as he couldn t afford to pay a crew, and got his friends to help out. Made for around $75 in cash spent mostly on tea and cookies for the zombies - Price relied on friends and Facebook to cast his legion of undead extras. It took over 18 months and buckets of determination for Price to make the movie on a 10-year-old camcorder that broke during the shoot. Props were mainly household items and locations around his rented London home. Price borrowed what he needed from friends and carried out most of the crew roles himself, while he held down a nightshift job as a taxi booker. The movie follows Colin, played by Alastair Kirton - a new zombie, who s finding his way in an apocalyptic London suburbia. Approaching the genre from a zombie s perspective gave the story an interesting way to explore themes of humanity in a changing world. Colin has won several festival awards, and has launched Marc Price s film-maker career. He s already preparing for his next movie Thunderchild , which although to be made on a slightly bigger budget will still embrace his DIY ethos. Price hopes Colin will encourage others to pick up a camera and make a movie and not be put off by not having a budget, as Price says: If our film does anything, hopefully it will make some 14-yearold who wishes to make a movie, say Oh, it s entirely possible, because my mobile phone has a better resolution than this guy s camcorder. I am really excited by the idea of people watching my cheap little film and thinking If this guy can do it, then so can I

However, great idea aside, it needed more capable hands to pull it off successfully. The pacing plods, the lighting is inconsistent at best (two long bewildering scenes are so dark nothing can be made of them), the sound at times is annoyingly mechanical (on purpose or a mistake?), the dialog is sparse, there really isn't a story, the flashback hurt rather than helped, and as for character development...well, the main character is rotting before our eyes (I don't believe that counts).
I am glad I saw it, it was okay, but, it's not one I'd want to keep in my extensive DVD collection.
And oh yeah, the DVD cover was fantastic.
