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

Pretty gruesome horror film.
30 January 2005 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

A young artist Kyra lays semi-conscious in a hospital bed.She was brought savagely slashed and battered,uttering one word 'Kolobos'.36 hours later Kyra,enticed by a free vacation offer,participates in an experimental film.Unfortunately she and the rest of the cast soon discover that they are trapped in a lodge with sealed doors and windows and no means of escape.One by one,they encounter a vicious killer with a mutilated face."Kolobos" is a pretty good experimental slasher which reminds me a little bit another unsettling horror film "My Little Eye".The acting by totally unknown cast is decent and the killings are very gory and sadistic.The film is heavily influenced by Italian giallos,especially the works of Dario Argento and this is another reason to see it.The musical score by William Kidd clearly copies the main theme by Goblin from "Suspiria".The death scenes are gruesome including nasty teeth-smashing straight from "Deep Red" and a horrific eyeball puncture ala "Evil Dead Trap".The film offers some surreal scenes and enough grisly surprises to satisfy fans of low-budget horror.Give it a chance.8 out of 10.
