What’s that severely blurry image positioned beneath this pathetic excuse for a news article? That’s the first image from director Jeff Renfroe’s “The Colony”, a cannibal flick co-starring Bill Paxton. And because it contains a performance from Paxton, I feel obligated to cover it. Because Bill Paxton is a badass, and there’s really nothing you can do about it. Simple as that.
I think a proper synopsis is in order:
Beneath the icy surface, survivors of Colony Seven struggle as food supplies dwindle and temperatures continue to drop. Plagued by illness and internal conflict, the colonists suspect the worst when they mysteriously lose contact with Colony Five – the only other known settlement. Sam, a strong-willed mechanic with a tragic past, joins a team headed up by Briggs on a dangerous expedition to find out what happened. After a hellish trek, they discover a threat much worse than imagined, and now Colony Seven must win a savage battle to preserve the last of humanity.
“The Colony”, which also stars Laurence Fishburne and Kevin Zegers, is currently in production. As far as first images could go, it could be better, but I’m willing to work with what I’m given.
