[COLIN] The Zombie Invasion Begins

‘Colin’ the $75 Zombie Horror Sensation, makes its North American Theatrical Premiere at the 13th Floor Haunted House in San Antonio, TX

Walking Shadows LLC announces that the surprise hit of the Cannes Film Festival, “Colin,” a British zombie movie, which cost just $75 (£45) to make, will make its North American Premiere at the 13th Floor Haunted House in San Antonio, Texas on Thursday, September 23, 2010 - before moving to theaters nationwide in September and October.

“Colin” is a new take on the traditional zombie film genre, telling the tale through the eyes of the zombie, played by 29-year-old Alastair Kirton.

Filmmaker Marc Price made headlines around the world when his DIY movie gained critical acclaim for being a fresh voice in a well-worn genre and was hailed as “redefining no-budget film-making.”

Price is thrilled that US audiences will now get to see his movie, after news of the film was featured on US television networks including CNN, ABC, and CBS – before finding a U.S. distributor.

13th Floor Haunted House is San Antonio’s largest haunted house attraction and the newest attraction to the America Haunts network of professional haunted houses, regarded as some of America’s best haunted houses, including the House of Torment in Austin, TX and The 13th Floor and Asylum in Denver, CO.

Price made COLIN for around $75 in cash – spent mostly on a crowbar – and tea and cookies for the zombies. He relied on friends and Facebook to cast his legion of undead extras. It took over 18 months and buckets of determination for Price to make the movie on a 10-year-old camcorder that broke during the shoot.

“If our film does anything, hopefully it will make some 14-year old who wishes to make a movie, say ‘Oh, it’s entirely possible, because my mobile phone has a better resolution than this guy’s camcorder.’ I am excited by the idea of people watching my cheap little film and thinking ‘If this guy can do it, then so can I.’”

At time of press, COLIN has also booked the following playdates:

Sept 23 13th Floor Haunted House San Antonio, TX
Sept 24-30 Facets Cinematheque Chicago IL
