Trivia

The street battle scene was shot in London without permission. A call was made to the police informing them of a "riot" in progress. When a lone policeman arrived to investigate the unlikely cause of the complaint he discovered a street littered with body parts and a number of people sporting bloody injuries courtesy of the make-up team. Fortunately the policeman was amused with what he saw and instead of confiscating any equipment he opted to take a few pictures on his mobile phone and leave the cast and crew continue shooting. In the event of the policeman reacting unfavourably to shooting without a permit Marc Price removed the tape and handed it to a crew member then approached the policeman, empty camera in hand, in order to save the footage that had been shot.

Colin
11 November 2009 | by DelBongoSee all my reviews

All of the recent coverage of this film in the mainstream print press has inspired the expectation in many (myself very much included) that it has somehow transcended its origins as a film that cost 40 quid to make. It hasn't.

Looking exactly as you'd expect a £40 zombie movie to look (replete with a complete disregard for cinematography, alarmingly hammy acting and plenty of unconvincing, off- colour bloodletting) Colin is an extraordinarily hard slog. This is particularly true of its opening half hour, which is almost totally bereft of dialogue and filled with way too many ugly and aimless shots that last at least four or five times longer than they need to, without any justification.

Despite the odd moderately impressive exterior shot, Colin's "story" is one constructed around the constant need to justify the shooting locations - which are all, for the vast majority of the time, someone's drab and under-lit living room. The finale, which bucks this trend by taking place in someone's garden, is five utterly exhausting minutes of ketchup, shaky-cam and non-stop shouting; the sheer, belligerent pointlessness of which angered me so much that I almost flung a shoe through my TV.

Spades of kudos must go to the enterprising young sprouts who clearly worked like dogs to get this film made, and I'm thrilled to live in an age where filmmakers of this level can get their work seen and distributed nationally on DVD, but to be brutally honest this is film-making of an extremely sloppy vintage, and the complete lack of plot renders it monumentally, deadeningly boring.

A friend of mine remarked that he'd rather sit down in front of a decade's worth of his neighbour's holiday videos than sit through Colin again.

Ditto.
