Colin [Dec. 22nd, 2009|12:42 am]

The hype has been around for a while but I have finally caught up with the dvd of Colin - the zombie movie allegedly made for £45.
Colin has two major claims to fame. The first, as I stated is that it was made for only £45. I think this may have been a bit of a stretch. Even if everybody involved game their time for free and you dont count the cost of the camera, editing equipment or any other factors which would cost money if you had to buy from scratch, £45 is still a little hard to believe. I dont mean that to be a criticism of the film - its very good - I just doubt the figure they claim as total costs. The fact is that if they spent £4,500 making this film that would still be a massive achievement as it really does hold its own as a feature film and the makers should be proud of it whatever the costs.
The second claim to fame for Colin is probably more interesting. It has been proclaimed as the first film told from the zombie perspective. On a technicality, "I, Zombie" was a film which did this some years before but that had a very different premise as it featured an articulate man who had been infected slowly deterioration into zombie-ness. Colin by Comparison takes a man who rapidly descends into Romero style zombie-ness, and then continues his story. As far as I know it is the first film to do this and it does it very well.
The fact is this home-made film is really very good. It has a tight story and characters you empathise with and there is a good proportion of Hollywood output that cant boast that.


This week I have been mostly reading: The Samurai Film by Alain Silver

Zombie Xmas [Nov. 25th, 2009|11:48 pm]

[music |Linda Lyndel - What A Man]

The zombie cash-ins are still coming thick and fast despite the deluge of vampire/twilight stuff that has flooded the shops lately. I picked up two Christmas related zombie goodies today - though I havent had a chance to read them yet...

I Am Scrooge: A Zombie Story For Christmas promises to be a Dickensian Zombie Apocalypse (and)

Its Beginning To Look A Lot Like Zombies: A Book Of Zombie Christmas Carols by Michael P. Spradlin also looks like a giggle. I have peeked inside this already and found such zombie yule delights as "I saw mommy chewing santa claus" and "We Three Spleens"

Its almost enough to make Christmas bearable - this and the Doctor Who special will hopefully get me through!

Down The Road (more Zombie books) [Nov. 15th, 2009|03:30 pm]

[music |Little Richard - Good Golly Miss Molly]

This week I have been mostly reading: Down The Road - On The Last Day by Bowie Ibarra.

I like Bowie Ibarra's books. A while ago I read "Down The Road - A Zombie Horror Story" and Ive just finished reading "On The Last Day". Both books contain some fairly enjoyable levels of Romero style Zombie mayhem but there is something else going on in his books - a healthy cynicism about government.
His first book looked at government run FEMA centres and in the wake of Hurricane Katrina they were portrayed as probably more sinister than the zombie outbreak itself. On The Last Day takes a look at a community that has managed to fortify itself against the undead but then has to stand against the US/UN military trying to restore its version of authority - with distinct echoes of Waco.
Its interesting stuff.

Zombies (another book) [Nov. 5th, 2009|11:15 pm]
The Zombie Society

[music |Skunk Anansie - Weak]

This week I have been mostly reading: Zombies - A Record Of The Year Of Infection by ( The Improbably named) Dr. Robert Twombly.

This book models itself on a "found" journal of a medical researcher and catalogues the first year of the zombie infection, from outbreak to global pandemic. It does this competently but with little that hasnt already appeared somewhere. Where the book falls down is that it markets itself as a "found manuscript" and is supposedly a handwritten journal, complete with the authors own illustrations. No attempt has been made by the publisher to make the book look or feel anything remotely like that. Its very obviously a cheap paperback. The "publishers note" which is supposed to explain the books origins just ends up cheapening the whole affair.
Its not a bad book and some of the illustrations are pretty cool, it just doesnt do much of anything that is original. Its a let down.

I love the cinema but there is a combination of three words more cast-iron-guaranteed to get me there than any other: New. Zombie. Movie. This is how Pontypool, the independent Canadian movie was sold on me.
