Trivia

The first movie to be shot at the decommissioned NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) base in North Bay, Ontario, Canada. See more »

Goofs

The bridge is shown to have random nearly-circular holes punched through the reinforced concrete on its deck, but almost no damage to its steel superstructure. An ice storm or ice age would not have caused damage like that; nor would any other condition shown in the movie. See more »

Quotes

Sam: There's no one here. We only knew that you were here because of the knocking.
Leland: Yeah, but I didn't knock.

Fun throwback B-movie
6 May 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

If you have an affinity for movies like The Warriors, Mad Max, Carpenter's The Thing, Craven's The Hills Have Eyes, you will be game for this fun b-movie. Imaginative and well-paced. Don't expect a 100 million dollar special-effects extravaganza with every little detail and character fleshed out to the extreme. That's not what these type of movies are for. The Colony is an economically told, well written, nicely shot, low-budget affair with engaging performances from all. You'll be surprised and impressed with how much the filmmakers accomplished with less than 20 million dollars. The authenticity of the underground colony is great (it doesn't feel like a film set) considering they filmed at the decommissioned NORAD facility in Northern Ontario.
