SCREAM . . . YOU’RE ON TV!
It’s “The Real World” meets SAW by way of SUSPIRIA in this super-smart, super-gory late-’90s slasher from filmmakers Daniel Liatowitsch and David Todd Ocvirk, released in the midst of the post-SCREAM slice-and-dice revival.
A group of youngsters arrive at a snow-covered house under the guise of participating in a ground-breaking new experimental film. With the entire property outfitted with cameras, their every move is recorded. But when the house locks down, it soon becomes clear that something sinister is afoot.
Marketed as little more than a generic horror flick at the time of its release, KOLOBOS -- far from being a run-of-the-mill slasher clone -- has more in common with the booby-trap CUBE (1997) and the reality-TV theme of MY LITTLE EYE (2002), which it preempted by some three years.
