Customer Reviews

This movie is very suspenseful and has good acting in it.
Darrel Poppino
THE COTTAGE pulls an unexpected twist that's just too contrived to be credible.
Michael Butts
I just didn't like either one of them, so it was hard to root for them at all.

"You left the door unlocked you obviously wanted me to come back in." After the tenant that Chloe (Dalton) and Michael have set for their cottage falls through romance novelist Robert (Arquette) answers the ad. After meeting him the family thinks they have the perfect person to move in and are excited. But like most things in life some things are too good to be true. This is true in all genres but I think that casting in horror movies has a lot to do with how creeped out you get watching. I have always wanted to write a "Silence Of The Lambs" type movie starring Roma Downey (from Touched By An Angel), to me that would be creepy just because of who she is. Most people know David Arquette has a comedic actor in movie like "Eight Legged Freaks" and "See Spot Run" which is why he comes off so creepy in this. He gives a very laid back performance and the movie has the same vibe as "Hand That Rocks The Cradle" or "Fear". The movie itself isn't that original and if it weren't for Arquette it would be forgettable, but his performance gives the film the extra dimension it needs to make it genuinely creepy and very watchable. He took the movie from an OK made-for-TV movie to an entertaining movie movie just by who he is. That is hard to do. Overall, an OK movie made much better by the casting of Arquette. I give it a B+.

Format: DVD
What started out as a potentially intriguing film falls victim to a sluggish pace and a ridiculous unsatisfying conclusion. David Arquette as creepy unbalanced Robert is a far cry from SCREAM's gentle Deputy Dewey, but his ability to sustain his evil hinders the overall impact of the movie. The rest of the cast is okay, but the sisters' performances are ultimately bland and unconvincing.
THE COTTAGE pulls an unexpected twist that's just too contrived to be credible. A potentially good thriller sabotaged by its weaknesses.

I like David Arquette and he is certainly the best thing about "The Cottage," but that's about the only endorsement that I can give this low-budget chiller. The story at the heart of this film might have been creepy and provocative had it been explored with any sort of depth, but the end result is more cheesy and comical than scary or disturbing. I love that the DVD cover proudly proclaims that "The Cottage" is "based on a harrowing true story" because the screenplay is about as far from plausible as you can imagine. That still might have been OK if the sordid tale had not taken itself so seriously. With a bit more humor, this might have been redeemed as campy fun. But as is, it's just another "thriller" that is completely dependent on every character making the dumbest choices possible at every moment. And with so little thought to writing identifiable protagonists, I didn't much care what evil fate befell this rather lifeless brood.

"The Cottage" starts with a surreal scene of violence that raises one's initial expectations. But after this brief moment of intrigue, the main story initiates and it will be a LONG while before anything exciting happens again. We are introduced to an ordinary family looking to sublet the guest house in their back yard. Kristen Dalton and Victor Brown are the rather bland parents and their two teenage girls are unnecessarily creepy. One is a rebellious troublemaker and one is a shy do-gooder, but neither seem particularly realistic. Enter Arquette as a potential tenant. He is so over-the-top as the perfect candidate, you know he'll only bring doom and destruction.

--- SPOILERS ---

The amount of times people were captured without a weapon or real threat was unbelievable, if you tried to kidnap me that way you would be dead. Then the husband and daughter go missing, meanwhile the mother keeps calling the cell phones casually asking where they are, she then thinks someone is in the house so decides to walk the house IN THE DARK.. Hmm, two members of my family have gone missing, and I have a crazy tenant, let me turn all the lights off, leave my baby and walk around the house with no weapon. SO UNREALISTIC.

Also you wouldn't leave your baby for a second if you felt under threat, yet the baby was constantly left alone to get kidnapped 3 times, you didn't learn the first time around? Then the car the baby is in which is driven by a teenager with no weapon at 5 miles an hour drives by you, and instead of chasing the car you scream and cry as if it's hopeless, really??

I want my $3.99 back, I want the 2 hours of my life back and I need a new date as mine left after I picked this movie..

This is one of those movies that is obvious who the bad guy is but the trip to the end is what makes it a great movie. There are some original ideas and great one liners and they did a great job making it entertaining for cult movie buffs as well as the general public. David Arquette's performance was one of his best and Kristen Dalton seamlessly pulled off one of the hardest roles of the movie.

Don't waste your time on this one. Without having some level of empathy for "those in peril," it's hard to get worked up about the danger they're in. And the viewer can't empathize with any of these characters. They have names...but that's about it.

The plot, such as it is, just meanders along, with faint attempts at creepiness with no follow-through. And there are so many holes in it, it's practically lace: A successful novelist who can't afford to fix a blown muffler? Cops who just shrug and toss their hands? One daughter finds a key bit of information, but never mentions it? People disappear and no one is concerned?

Although it's only about ninety minutes long, my viewing experience felt like twice-that. Worst of all, it sets itself up for a possible sequel.

No, no, NO!
