"Price satisfies the core audience with blood and entrails but also rends unexpected poignancy from the material. Now that takes brains" -TimeOut Chicago
"This witty, no-budget British feaure... breathes life into the undead by telling its story from their perspective" -Chicago Reader
Recommended! -NewCity Chicago
Our hero Colin is bitten by a zombie, he dies and returns as one of the undead. Following a zombie outbreak that sees our eponymous hero become a member of the undead, Colin tells the story from the zombie's point of view. We follow him as he wanders through suburbia during the throes of a cadaverous apocalypse. Through his encounters with objects, places and people, 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, Colin is the must-see zombie phenomenon of the year and has already wowed audiences at Cannes, proving that you do not need expensive equipment, a famous cast or even a film crew to make a successful movie. What you DO need is a great script, a lot of enthusiasm and by low budget, I mean bargain-basement low. The director, Marc Price made rent by working nights at a taxicab company and shot and edited the film over a period of 18 months. Price was assisted by volunteers, and zombie extras were recruited via MySpace and Facebook. Colin was created for only £45 ($70), which was for "a crowbar, a couple of tapes... and some tea and coffee to keep the zombies happy," Price said.
