$70 dollar zombie film is sensation at Cannes


Indie filmmakers accustomed to boasting about their movies’ tiny budgets can pretty much surrender all bragging rights for the foreseeable future. British director Marc Price spent a grand total of $70 on Colin, his dirt-cheap zombie flick that became a word-of-mouth sensation earlier this month at the Cannes International Film Festival.

The movie doesn’t look particularly cheap, judging from the blurry but stylish Colin trailer (embedded above). So how’d Price pull it off? Favors, lots of favors.

X-Men: The Last Stand make-up artist Michelle Webb, for example, volunteered to supervise effects for the bloody zombie attacks. As Price told CNN: “We were having the same latex that was put on Wolverine.”
