"For me, this is about as good as independent horror gets. Smart script, tight action, and a top-notch cast. Some viewers come down on the ending, but for me that's what made this film so perfect. Viewers may find themselves lost at times, but they'll just have to use their heads a bit. This is a thinking person's horror film where time and place are two concepts that rarely go hand in hand."
Scream fans move aside, time for a REAL slasher flick

"This movie did what most horror films fail to do: it seriously creeped me out. I hear a lot of complaints about Kolobos being a low budget b-rated slasher film with horrible acting and it is, however, I didn't feel that that took away from any of the suspense, action, or horror that it elicits. Kolobos offers up a dish full of psychological terror, gore, creative ways of killing off the characters, plenty of squeamish scenes, and an unexpected ending. Recommended to real fans of horror."

"After reviewing the DVD version of this film, i thought i would have to review this version as well. This film was poorly put together the odd gore special effects were nothing special, they just had a large cringe factor. The acting was variable between characters mostly apart from a few exceptions were not so good. You would have to have your brain examined to enjoy this or even buy this film. Still there are a few funny scenes the girl been forced onto the antler being one of my favorites and this shows how modern films get buy the film censors now unlike a similar scene in the B-movie Zombie Flesh Eaters."
Run of the Mill...but still has moments

"Rule #1 in marketing movies is always: Make it look appealing to anyone interested in the genre. Check out the slick design and glimmering color used on the front cover. Doesn't it scream "Choose me!"? Having said that, I'd like to thank "Big Brother" for taking a seemingly mundane and made-for-horror-schlock idea and milking millions of dollars (and British currency) out of the premise. "Kolobos" uses that premise as a way for the blood to start spurting. I enjoyed "Kolobos" for what it was. Not every movie made on a shoe-string budget is going to be sitting alongside Tarantino and Rodriguez for any awards come March/April. The death scenes, especially the shower, was a great touch. As was the video that kept playing. Cutting is a big issue in some circles, in fact, I have seen quite a few chatrooms devoted to the subject. Trust me, Google it to find out how many cutters are out there. Kolobos is essentailly a word meaning "cutter". It's creepy in it's overall feel. But there definitely are some d-grade effects (like the death of the girl in front of the fridge). For what it is, Kolobos is a good attempt at a now-tired premise, which seemed really novel at the time.
I'd recommend renting for a rain delay ballgame or for a night of "schlocky over the top horror"."
