Storyline

Night. Rain splatters the city. A young couple out for a drive take a shortcut through a deserted alley and makes a gruesome discovery: a girl, savagely slashed and battered, lies in a pool of her own blood. As the girl loses consciousness, she utters one word of explanation - 'Kolobos'. Flash back to 36 hours earlier. Down-on-her-luck artist Kyra Mitchell has just landed a dream job - a 3-month gig as a lab rat in an anthropology-related experimental film. In exchange, she gets free food and lodging in a fully-furnished mountain resort. Her new roommates, wise-cracking Tom, struggling actress Erica, college drop-out Gary and fast-food engineer Tina know little about Kyra's past. She allows them to see her artwork - dark, disturbing pieces - but tells them nothing about her inspiration - a faceless man who haunts her in nightmares and waking dreams. Still, happiness and camaraderie prevail - until night falls. On her way to grab a soda in the kitchen, Tina walks into a deadly booby ... Written by Armitage Pictures

Everything good about independent horror.
18 February 2002 | by (B-Independent.com) – See all my reviews

KOLOBOS is a Thinking Man's horror film. It represents everything good about the independent horror movement. I thought the ending worked surprisingly well. It doesn't do away with everything we've learned, it only reinforces it. Also, not everything we see happens in chronological order, soemthing else reinforced with the ending. I was skeptical at first, but took a chance with a film I've never heard of before. Not for one moment was I displeased.
