Produced on a micro-budget of just $70, director Marc Price's independent horror film Colin details the painful transformation of a typical British teen into a flesh eating corpse from his own personal perspective. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 46%

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This overlong, non-frightening debut features ugly digital images that are either over-saturated or absurdly badly lit, and its attempts at leavening humour all fall flat."
‑ Nigel Floyd, Time Out
"Feels like a decent short film blown up to feature length."
‑ Michael W. Phillips, Jr., Goatdog's Movies
"Maddeningly slow and relying too much on shaky handycam footage - probably an economy measure - it's a promising debut from filmmaker Marc Price."
‑ David Edwards, Daily Mirror [UK]
"This is a film that belongs to the noble heritage of beery DVD nights with a takeaway and themed movie double bill."
‑ Catherine Bray, Film4
"The absence of that free commodity, narrative surprise, makes it a movie whose resourcefulness you can applaud -- I wish Price well -- while secretly being glad you didn't pay to see it."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"If you take away the novelty of the low budget, what's left is a mostly failed experiment that meanders down many fruitless avenues."
‑ Josh Bell,
"I've seen crisper, better-lit images on CCTV screens."
‑ Edward Porter, Sunday Times (UK)
"Vivid proof that filmmaking is more about creativity than money, this micro-budget British movie takes an inventive approach to the ubiquitous zombie genre. It's rough around the edges, but is surprisingly fresh and engaging."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"There's no jeopardy, no conflict, no drama. Indeed, Price doesn't seem to be aware of the most basic principles of storytelling."
‑ Toby Young, Times [UK]
"The meagre budget has taken its toll. Many scenes are too poorly lit to be enjoyable. Coupled with the convulsive camerawork, a good 25 per cent of the film is unintelligible."
‑ Jonathan Williams, Little White Lies
"Until it turns poignant, Colin is often funny."
‑ D.K. Holm, Vancouver Voice
"A confused, unoriginal and unimaginative hand-held account."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"Falls down technically (unsurprisingly) and narratively (bit if shame) but with a certain British charm."
‑ Simon Crook, Empire Magazine
"The overall cost was clearly higher than 45, but I've seen duller and cheaper-looking films that have cost Britain's lottery players an awful lot more."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Colin easily transcends its origins to rightly take its place as one of the better British horror films of the past few years."
‑ Mayer Nissim, Digital Spy
