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

This is one kick arse, unheard of, horror film, a definate must see.
5 November 2001 | by Kolobos85See all my reviews

Read another review for the plot cause i wouldn't want to give anything away. i just wanna say i was really impressed by the quality and effectiveness that this movie had as a straight to video horror release, which there are so few of at the present. the gore is spot on, and me and my mate jonnyorange76 should know cause we have watched shelf loads of vids. (in one scene a guy gets his head rammed off a metal bath tub, and you see his teeth connect, grrrrreattt!!.) there is definatley a good amount of suspense pulled off here and the director managed to make me jump a few times, this was probably helped by some pretty descent acting instead of the usually petty crap straight to vid releases have in them. take the good advice and chek this movie out cause it has just as many shoks in as any of the screams if not more, PLUS U CAN THEN TRY AND EXPLAIN THE ENDING TO ME.
