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

It wasn't terrible
6 March 2003 | by superleatherSee all my reviews

It was almost as if the people who made this movie were trying to make an American Horror film, in the Asian Horror style. I don't really think Kolobos qualifies as a Slasher Filck, it's more of a Psychological, Shock Film. It doesn't take too much thought, but it does have you questioning the whole situation. It's worth a watch if you haven't seen it.
