THE COLONY, a truly spine-chilling dystopian vision of the future starring the legendary Laurence Fishburne and Bill Paxto, is due to hit UK DVD shelves on 20th January 2014 through Entertainment One.
By 2045, humans have built weather machines to help control the devastating threat of global warming, but when these machines unexpectedly break down the planet is plunged into sub-zero temperatures and sent into the next ice age. The lucky few that remain are forced to live underground in bunkers to escape the extreme cold.
Briggs (Fishburne) and Mason (Paxton) are the leaders of one such bunker, Colony 7. After receiving a distress signal from a neighbouring bunker, Briggs leads a dangerous mission into the frozen wasteland determined to discover their fate. Upon arrival they discover a desolate place with walls covered in blood and a savage threat much worse than anything they’ve encountered before. If Briggs & his team are to ensure the continued existence of survivors all-over, they must battle to protect their fellow colonists in what might be humanity’s last stand.
“A stylish, pulse-pounding chiller!” (Billy Chainsaw, Bizarre), ‘The Colony’ is without a doubt the more fearful, chilling cousin to ‘The Walking Dead’! Wielding an incredible cast including Hollywood titans Laurence Fishburne and Bill Paxton, alongside horrors’ rising star Kevin Zegers, ‘The Colony’ is one hell of a blood-curdling thrill-ride that’ll chill you to the bone!
