October 25th, 2016 – Philadelphia, PA – Proving that the American South does not hold a monopoly on sexually depraved, bloodthirsty hillbillies, Killbilllies (aka: Idyll,Idila) depicts a harrowing tale of abduction, violence and hoped-for survival; this is Slovenia’s first ever horror movie.
In the story, a group of fashionistas from the city, including models Zina (Nina Ivanisin) and Mia (Nika Rozman), make-up artist Dragica (Manca Ogorevc) and photographer Blitcz (Sebastian Cavazza), begin to shoot on an idyllic countryside hilltop. But soon, two physically deformed psychopathic countrymen approach them and quickly attack. After the terrified group finds themselves chained in a basement and awaiting their gruesome fate, they decide they must fight no matter what the odds.
A wild, bloody, taut clash ensues between urban and rural, women and men, between savages and civilized man. A fresh, sadistic take on such classics as The Hills Have Eyes and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre!
“Shocking….gruesome…a strong entry into the slasher genre.” – 28DLA.com
“This is one good looking, harrowingly effective, sublimely acted, and gruelingly bloody film…. shouldn’t be missed.” – Ain’t It Cool News “I really do urge you to check this one out. If you’re after some hillbilly horror action, keep your eyes peeled for this one.” – HorrorMovies.ca
