Time Out

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.

Until it turns poignant, Colin is often funny.

Philip French
Observer (UK)

A confused, unoriginal and unimaginative hand-held account.

Where the film scores is in its moments of simplicity. This isn't another smirking Z-budget spoof, but has the confidence to take itself seriously (though there are some nice odd touches of humour).

Feels like a decent short film blown up to feature length.

Maddeningly slow and relying too much on shaky handycam footage - probably an economy measure - it's a promising debut from filmmaker Marc Price.

If you take away the novelty of the low budget, what's left is a mostly failed experiment that meanders down many fruitless avenues.

Shadows on the Wall

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.

Very cheap but pretty cool zombie film. This caused a bit of a stir on release as it was apparantly made for 45! Looking at that you might think how the fuck… More
