With titles like Shaun Of The Dead, Severence, Evil Aliens, and Botched being sparkling examples of the horror/comedy genre AND all coming to us from Great Britain, it should come as no real surprise that The Cottage fits in so well with the rest of those films. Enter polar-opposites(and brothers) David and Peter; stuck in the middle of nowhere and involved in a kidnapping gone awry that includes a captive that refuses to go quietly, a pair of Asian assasins, an obese partner in crime that can do little right(my favorite character too), bizarre townsfolk(with a guest spot by Pinhead himself, Doug Bradley!), and of course, when things seem like they can't get any worse, a demented and deformed maniac! Now for the kind of dry humor and wit used here, you need a great cast, and Andy Serkis(The Prestige, King Kong) and Reece Shearsmith(Shaun Of The Dead, The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy) as the lead protagonists are fantastic... whether it's bouncing quips off of eachother, or interacting with the rest of the ecclectic characters that they run into throughout the night. As far as deformed killers go, "the farmer" is a definite keeper! He's the same basic mold as a hundred gruesome, semi-retarded, cruel and twisted(with canibalistic urges) madmen that horror fans have come to expect... but he looks and acts the part perfectly, and actually features the best looking(and by that I mean ugliest) clump of flesh for a head that I've seen in quite awhile! The direction is excellent and I really enjoyed the musical score(which sounds like it was cut for a Tim Burton film rather than this); in the end, I'd even go as far as to say this is my favorite of all the aforementioned films listed at the top of the review...Read more ›

The Cottage is a movie you will either love or hate.. I Loved it..
I'm a die hard slasher fan and of course I love blood and gore,but this movie was so funny and entertaining it didn't bother me that the killing didn't start untill the last half of the movie I still loved it.

It builds great character development and the main characters two bumbling brothers"Steven and David" are hilarious in the fact that everything they do goes wrong because they are just born losers.

Their kidnap plot goes wrong in every possible way
except they do get the kipnapee "Tracey" to the holding spot..a cottage that is "let's say in the wrong neighborhood"..

When Tracey escapes after delivering much physical abuse to the weaker and more meek of the brothers she runs to a nearby farm, that's when that slasher element kicks in..
A terribly disfigured farmer is on the loose and he not in a good mood..although the comedy elements go on through the entire film, the gore is very well done and plentiful.

It's hilarious to watch Tracey go up against the killer farmer with her tough as nails attitude.

I think this will become a classic.
I highly reccomend it.

THE COTTAGE is a great place to live but I certainly wouldn't want to visit because, as the villagers warn, strangers don't do very well around there. This film is a perfect example of how to make a horror film: take 1 part droll British humor, add 2 bumbling criminals, blend in 1 foul mouthed kidnap victim, pour in several gallons of bodily fluids (preferably red), and then hack, slash, rip, rend, slice and dice with everything from knives to rakes, shovels,and pick-axes until you think you've seen all the viscera there is to see--and then add that nice little surprise twist at the end. That's what I call entertainment!

In a mere 91 minutes of unrated glee and gore writer/director Paul Andrew Williams has fashioned an entertaining and rather original film that embraces several different genres as it rushes giddily towards its climax. This is not what I would normally think of as my kind of film were I reading a synopsis of it somewhere, but when all is said and done THE COTTAGE turned out to be just what I was looking for.

Positively excellent!!!!
Let me reiderate,
This movie is magnificent!!
One of the best slasher/comedies in existence!!!

1 brother enlists the help of his bumbling sibling
to help him kidnap the tough-as-nails daughter of a local mob-boss.
They bring her back to an abandoned farm,
where everything goes dreadfully arye.

The settings are spooky,
Nothing says horror like a seemingly abandoned farm.
The characters are all lovable, and quite unforgetable,
every last one of them.
The 2 brothers are great together;
as the headstrong, calculative sibling,
and his brother the whipped, nervous-wreck.
Their abductee is a wise-cracking pistol,
who doesn't take guff from no one.
She really gets the laughs bursting from your chest,
as she single-handedly takes on both her abductors.
Their inside-man is complete dolt, a moron of hilarious proportions.
And the the local villagers are unexplainably bizarre.
The laughs are subtle, but consitent,
the gore is plentifully terrific,
and the scares are of the jump-out-of-your-seat variety.
I gotta warn you,
halfway through, this bothched kidnapping tale does a complete 180,
slaps you in the face with a cold shovel,
and becomes an old-school slasher movie,
when the inhabitant of the farm returns unannounced
to find a host of intruders on his farm.
And "Old McDonald" he ain't
If you loved flix like,
Shaun of the Dead, Bothced, Hatchet, Behind the Mask, or Severance,
get this flick immediately.
You will not be disappointed.
Watch the trailer and see if I'm lying to you.

MORAL OF THE STORY:
Old McDonald had a farm........but he traded it for an abattoir.
