Synopsis: Proving that the American South does not hold a monopoly on sexually depraved, bloodthirsty hillbillies, Killbillies (aka: Idyll) depicts a harrowing tale of abduction, violence and hoped-for survival. A group of fashionistas from the city, including models Zina and Mia, make-up artist Dragica and photographer Blitcz, 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.

“Full of gut-wrenching carnage and unbridled tension, this movie will make an excellent addition to your holiday viewing this year. When it comes to intensity, this film really knows how to take it up a notch. The tension is as thick as pasta and just as tasty…Killbillies is a big win for me, and I enjoyed every minute of it.” - ShatteredRavings

“…three levels beyond bad ass.” - AddictedtoHorrorMovies

“What made this stand above much lesser fare that I have seen is it’s just so damn well paced. The prosthetics in this film are pretty good too as is the gore; and, in terms of on screen brutality, the violence towards the group is pretty harsh…it would be a crime to pass this film off as a Euro ‘Wrong Turn’, as it is a very well put together piece of cinema which deserves your attention.” - HorrorHound

“A nifty film that makes the most out of a small cast and a handful of locations.” - CoffeeCoffeeandMoreCoffee
