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.

I decided to get away from the already-been-done-American horror movies and try out some of the foreign ones. I waded thru some crappy to really crappy foreign horror films but found a few gems amongst the gravel. The Cottage is just one of those gems. It had everything that makes a good movie for me; horror, character formation, some laughs, action, thrills, and some nice kills plus it's in English. If you're a horror fan with a sense of humor, try this one out! I highly reccommend it!!

This movie surprised me. I have read alot of reveiws on it and they were for the most part good reveiws. I finally gave in an watched it. I was glad I did because it was very good. The story is about a botched kidnapping of a rich guys daughter by two brothers. The kidnapped girl is annoying and the two brothers are funny (one being a tough guy, the other a pure wimp). The girl eventually gets away and makes her way to the farm house next door. Unfortunatley, the man living next door is a disfigured psycho who kills people in a variety of grusome ways.

What I didnt like about the movie was that it took like an hour for the gore to start. I think that may have been the point though. The first half of the movie is a comedy and the second half is gory blood-spattered horror movie. The movie suprised me by hoe bloody it actually was. I guess thats why i liked it so much. Overall a good film and definitley worth the watch.

quite honestly, the best $.98 cents i have spent in ages.

the first half of the movie concentrates on the fumbled (and extremely hilarious) kidnapping of a strip club owner's daughter by a pair of brothers and the buxom blond's brother. the daughter turns the tables on the kidnappers and actually ends up beating the snot (mentally and physically) out of them. one thing leads to another and the blond ends up escaping with the stupider of the two brothers in tow, soon stumbling on to a run down farm house.

this movie morphs perfectly from bumbling black comedy to slasher flick with fantastic, jaw dropping gore, tons of laughs and a decent amount of twists and turns. i highly recommend adding this to your collection.
