Already a worldwide phenomenon with huge media coverage, Colin is the £45 zombie movie! Told from the zombie s perspective, it is a film truly like no other! Our hero Colin is bitten by a zombie; he dies and returns from the dead. We follow him as he wanders through suburbia during the throes of a cadaverous apocalypse. Through his encounters with objects, places and people, we learn who Colin was and more pertinently, what he has now become. Including a broad daylight zombie versus human street battle, an epic housebound siege and bags of gore, Colin is the must-see zombie phenomenon of the year! DVD Extras Directory and Cast Commentary

i really liked this film having watched a lot of zombie films both poor and awsome, and i thought this came in the pretty good area, its shot like the 'blair witch project' which suited the low budgetness of this film, it also has a lot of diffrent stories going on it (not all of them amazing and some of them good ideas but not thought out properly) so its not all about colin the zombie but whats happening around him aswell which for me makes it pretty good and a unique zombie flic.

I can't in all good conscience give this more than 1 star. I have just paused it at 34 minutes and a few seconds whilst watching on Prime. It's not the film quality or acting, not even the premise. In fact everything is done brilliantly, it certainly has a bleak atmosphere, and all that was spoiling it here and there..... was stupidity. The walking dead in this movie, are barely capable of walking, let alone fighting. Yet for some inexplicable reason, the living, seem intent on presenting themselves as zombie fodder.
Instead of just walking out of the way, they seem to just be sitting down, slashing at the air with knives, or listening to their mp3 players doing nothing at all in the interests of self preservation while being dined on by zombies.
Then, a pair of idiots go after Colin, to steal his shoes. From the veritable safety of their lofty position, they come down to ground level to restrain the titular Colin in order to take his shoes off.
Here, for reasons best left to your imagination, the pair of idiots seem totally unable to remove a shoe from an already prostrate zombie that doesn't exactly put up any fight, because it really has barely any control over it's faculties.

I continued watching nonetheless, and 2 other people appear, and start fighting with the 2 idiots, which really is giving good old Colin an opportunity to sink his teeth into something. Indeed, he predictably does, and once the 2 idiots are sent packing by the threat of being severed by a sword, we learn that the girl who got chomped, was actually Colin's sister, and she just wanted to make sure he didn't lose his shoes, since a zombie's life is already miserable enough, having no shoes would just be unbearable.

I seem to have seen a whole glut of shaky-cam zombie flics recently, including Rec, The Zombie Diaries and this one. I reckon Colin just about pips the others though, because of its uniqueness.

Poor Colin. His girlfriend dies in his arms, only to come back to life and bite a chunk out of his arm. The poor lad then walks the streets , trying to stay warm, get some food inside him (even if it's only someone's ear) and somehow to cope with a world that no longer makes any sense. Some brutal nutters fire slingshots at him, throw explosives at him, try to mug him for his Addidas trainers, hit him in the head with a hammer and even incarcerate him with his dead little sis. Being dead is no life!

But what a clever movie! The Zombie Diaries flirted briefly with the scenario of sympathy for Mr. Zombie, but Colin takes it orders of magnitude further. Sure it's not perfect, some of the action takes place in ridiculously dark surroundings and the special effects are less than special most of the time (the guy snapped in half as zombies drag him through a window being particularly poor), but the premise is just so clever that it makes for an absolutely unmissable movie. Do you remember seeing Starship Troopers, when Earth is being threatened by alien bugs - and yet you can't help feeling sorry for the bugs? Well Colin does the same thing, fighting the corner of the zombies and shows that British inventiveness is still very much (dead)alive in the horror movie world.

This is a very important horror movie that just may launch a whole new sub-genre. Horror buffs MUST add Colin to their collection!

A film like this doesn't deserve all the one star reviews here but neither does it merit the five star raves. Truth is its an original, sporadically interesting film - if it really cost 45 quid then fair play to everyone involved, I salute you - however none of this means that the film is in any way enjoyable or exciting. In fact once the frission of the first 10 mins is over its a long slog to the end. Theres a stodgy set piece in a flat that totally derails the spooky atmosphere - its better in the quieter outdoor scenes.

This interesting take on zombie flicks opens with the one & only Colin being bitten by a zombie & becoming one of the walking dead. He wanders the streets, encountering others of his kind as well as run-ins with the living, while being mysteriously drawn... somewhere. While most of the living are just trying to survive, others victimise Colin, mugging him for his shoes & dragging him into more sinister schemes. This is an interesting twist on the main dynamic within zombie films (particularly those of George A. Romero) which is conflicts among the living, while the living dead are more of an ever-present threat in the background.

Director Marc Price has done an amazing job with some an incredibly threadbare budget. He clearly hasn't spent it on fancy film or expensive cameras, sticking to a handheld & not even shooting in widescreen but this adds to the films' believability, giving it a dirty, realistic feel. He adds to this by using lots of close-up shots which can be confusing during action scenes but more importantly add a convincing sense of chaos & panic to the fights. Had Colin been shot in glorious technicolour with sweeping landscapes, it would look more like an OTT Hollywood movie & wouldn't have been anywhere near as engaging. And engaging it is, too - lead actor Alastair Kirton does an amazing job of turning one of the living dead into a sympathetic character who I genuinely felt pity & empathy for.

Colin is not without its flaws - frankly, its incredibly slow in places & I found myself watching it in 2 sittings as a result. Also, the camerawork is a little piecemeal & unimaginative in comparison with early low-budget works by other maverick directors such as Tarantino & Robert Rodriguez but then Colin is more about strong ideas than flashy packaging.
