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).

If you take away the novelty of the low budget, what's left is a mostly failed experiment that meanders down many fruitless avenues.
| Original Score: 2.5/5

Until it turns poignant, Colin is often funny.

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

I've seen crisper, better-lit images on CCTV screens.

A confused, unoriginal and unimaginative hand-held account.
October 30, 2009
Maddeningly slow and relying too much on shaky handycam footage - probably an economy measure - it's a promising debut from filmmaker Marc Price.

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.

Falls down technically (unsurprisingly) and narratively (bit if shame) but with a certain British charm.

October 23, 2009
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.

This is a film that belongs to the noble heritage of beery DVD nights with a takeaway and themed movie double bill.

There's no jeopardy, no conflict, no drama. Indeed, Price doesn't seem to be aware of the most basic principles of storytelling.

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.

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.

October 23, 2009
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.
October 23, 2009
Colin easily transcends its origins to rightly take its place as one of the better British horror films of the past few years.

If a Credit Crunch Oscar existed, his DIY chutzpah would take the gong.

It's rough, it's bleary and the acting is dodgy, but, let's face it, the collapse of human civilisation won't look like a Zack Snyder or even a Danny Boyle movie - it'll look like the discarded home movie footage from hell.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Not so much a movie as a protracted act of collective career suicide, like the post strike.
October 23, 2009
You get what you pay for and what you get for 45 is next to nowt.
