Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 8 August 2010
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!
