Colin: Award-Winning Zombie Horror Sensation & Cannes Film Festival Hit Made for $75

Breathing new life into the undead is the British horror phenomenon Colin, about the life of a zombie told through his own eyes, stalking onto DVD Oct. 19 (distributed by Walking Shadows).

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 “Best Micro-budget Feature Film” at the Raindance Film Festival, the “Indie Spirit Award” at the South Africa Horrorfest, “Best Director” at the Buenos Aires Blood Red Film Festival and the “Special Jury Award” 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) … 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 perspective—a story told through the zombie’s eyes. Made for just $75, mostly spent on tea and cookies for his “zombies,” Price relied on friends and Facebook to cast his legion of undead extras.

Without funding, it was imperative to bring more enthusiasm to the film’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 collector’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 director’s commentary. Additionally, expanded bonus material on the two-disc DVD edition includes “Making of Colin” documentary, deleted scenes, deleted scenes commentary, original trailer and Price’s new short film, The End.
