We Need Monsters, Not Monstrous People
Trailer starts great but fades quick once the bad guys are revealed to be nothing more than people who have been 'driven crazy' by hunger. However, this could be misdirection to disguise the sci-fi twist. I'd bet that's the case. Has to be. Right?
If not 'The Colony' isn't a sci-fi thriller, it's just a cabin-in-the-woods setup or, in this case, cabin-in-the-snow. In order to be an 'Alien'-in-the-snow the bad guys have to be more than simply hungry people, however strung out. In order to enjoy our popcorn we'll need to see monsters, not monstrous people.
Bottom line: I love this kind of flick. So much fun, even if it's bad. Whatever the case, with Laurence Fishburne and Bill Paxton this should be good viewing. Add good monsters and it's must-see at the theater then buy on Blu-ray.
