There is an ad in the classifieds that asks for "freeloaders" to take part in an "experimental" film - that's actually based on a Real World or Big Brother like reality TV concept ... but of course, there's no shortage of attention seekers who desperately want to get in on such a project - from bubbly Tina (Promise LaMarco) to pseudo-intellectual film student Gary (John Fairlie), from mediocre comedian Tom (Donny Terranova) to horror-actress-wanting-to-get-"serious"-roles Erica (Nichole Pelerine) ... and then there's Kyra (Amy Weber), a self harmer with suicidal tendencies and anxiety issues who's also an artist who doesn't show her drawings to anyone.

Well, the first few hours in the house go as one would expect, friendships form between some, between others not so much, there's blossoming romance and rejection, and soon everyone's a little freaked out by Kyra, because they are worried about her condition (even if she's medicated now), and Kyra, a looner by nature, doesn't really click too well with the others. And then, during movie night (they're watching a marathon of slashers starring Erica), Tina, who was only going to get some soda from the kitchen, is badly mutilated by some in-built apparatus, and while the others try to get help, her body disappears, only for her severed head turning up on a platter later on. Now that's of course creepy enough in itself, but when our heroes realize they're not only locked in but all the windows are barred by metal plates, they pretty much panic - not that you could blame them. Of course, they at first blame the director (Jonathan Rone) of the project for everything, but then his corpse turns up. Soon, some of Kyra's drawings turn up that seem to have predicted the killings, and the others blame her (even though physical evidence would redeem her) and lock her up - but that's when things really go downhill for everybody ...

Horror fave Linnea Quigley plays Kyra's best friend who's advising her before she gets into the thick of things.


Kolobos is most certainly a gravely underrated gem as it puts a highly original spin on the slasher formula, returning it to its mystery roots while at the same time adding the right amount of weirdness to things to really freak the audience out. Plus, the resolution keeps one guessing in a good way. On the directorial side of things, the directors really find a balance between going all-out gore and creating an atmosphere of unease, between well-placed jump scares and build-up of suspense. And the cast's of course uniformly up for the task to make this into something more than just your average shocker.

Actually, this one's probably among the best horror flicks of the 1990s - and too bad not more people are aware of it ...
