It was praised at Cannes as a no-budget marvel and is due on our screens next month. But Marc Price's British zombie film, Colin, made for just £45, has done more than set a new benchmark in cheap guerrilla film-making. It's also put Tooting Broadway on the horror-movie map.He should have come and shot it in SW19 at the Dark Mills Festival yesterday, he probably could have got his movie in the can for £30. I've never seen make-up applied so generously to such mingy effect. One scarcely expects Goths to scrub up like Brad and Angelina, but did Mum and Dad really have to lay on with such a will with the ugly stick?
The atmospheric, gore-spattered film is told from the point of view of the titular zombie, and was shot on the south London streets near Price's rented house on Himwell Street, SW17.
