A nice little gem of a movie
serioth from United States
15 May 2008
The Lost Colony was a surprisingly good movie. I expected a
run-of-the-mill gory horror-fest. The plot was crisp and clean. The
story did not bog down but did not feel rushed.
Although the story states it is based on real events; the only
historical facts are the disappearance of the colony and the names of
the settlers. The story gives a nice twist to the mystery, though.
The use of actual locations for most of the film added a better sense
of reality than the always dark studio lot production of the many
movies. The special effects were basic but not cheesy.
Anyone who likes traditional horror should enjoy this film. If you are
looking for monsters stalking teens and gore you may be disappointed.
This is by no means a fantastic movie but it is a nice little gem.
