A surprise hit at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, Colin enjoyed a limited U.S. theatrical run in September/October and played to acclaim at numerous film festivals and horror conventions across the country. Colin won â€śBest Micro-budget Feature Filmâ€ť at the Raindance Film Festival, the â€śIndie Spirit Awardâ€ť at the South Africa Horrorfest, â€śBest Directorâ€ť at the Buenos Aires Blood Red Film Festival and the â€śSpecial Jury Awardâ€ť at the Revenant Film Festival.
In Colin, life bites (literally!) for Colin (Alastair Kirton, Midnight) when, after becoming a zombie snack, he dies and returns as one of the undead. Wandering aimlessly through the streets of London, during the throes of a cadaverous apocalypse, we learn about Colin (from his perspective) â€¦ who he was and, more pertinently, what he has become, through his encounters with objects, places and people. With a broad-daylight, zombie-versus-human street battle, an epic housebound siege and endless gore, Colin is a terror-ific zombiefest not to be missed!
The brainchild of British writer-director Marc Price (Midnight, the upcoming Thunderchild), Colin breathes new life into a classic genre, offering an original, unique perspectiveâ€”a story told through the zombieâ€™s eyes. Made for just $75, mostly spent on tea and cookies for his â€śzombies,â€ť Price relied on friends and Facebook to cast his legion of undead extras.
Without funding, it was imperative to bring more enthusiasm to the filmâ€™s set and apply extra innovation to problem solving (technical or otherwise). Taking 18 months to complete and shooting with a 10-year-old camcorder that repeatedly broke down, a determined Price borrowed what he needed and performed most crew roles himself while holding down a night-shift job as a taxi booker.
Colin is available as a single-disc standard DVD release and in a special, two-disc, standard DVD collectorâ€™s set with expanded bonus material of an additional 68 minutes.
Colin is presented in full frame with an aspect ratio of 4 x 3 (1.33:1) and stereo sound. Special features include directorâ€™s commentary. Additionally, expanded bonus material on the two-disc DVD edition includes â€śMaking of Colinâ€ť documentary, deleted scenes, deleted scenes commentary, original trailer and Priceâ€™s new short film, The End.
