Killbillies (Idila), Slovenia’s First Horror Film

Killbillies (Idila)Killbillies (Idila), Slovenia’s First Horror Film, to be Released on DVD and Streaming

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, in Slovenia’s first ever horror movie. 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.


“Shocking….gruesome…a  strong entry into the slasher genre.” – 28dayslater

“This is one good looking, harrowingly effective, sublimely acted, and gruellingly 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

I've been a fan of horror and slasher movies for as long as I can remember. I consider the original Halloween to be the best horror movie of all time and my guilty pleasure horror flick would be The Exorcist III. You can find me on Twitter at @406Northlane or TikTok @406Northlane where I'm sure I'll offend you at least once a day.
