    It's nice to actually see Andy Serkis' face! This film has the sort of comedic ho-hum pace/soundtrack/dialogue of a family holiday comedy--but with a side of deranged redneck killer.

    Tiene unas partes divertidas, no me esperaba que al final todos murieran. Es de horror-humor.

    6.3/10 The performances (Jennifer Ellison, Andy Serkis) was what helped the movie to make it funnier, but at least one character was very unlikable, that was Reece Shearsmith's. Still, as it got closer to the end, it became more enjoyable and funnier while also a little more suspenseful. ~August 20, 2016~

    A funny screwball dark comedy gore horror. Even from the opening titles you know this whole movie is going to be a campy joke...the best kind of B horror. Wonderful subversion of expectation. Small budget, nothing big or fancy, just great writing, acting, camera work, and music. Quite entertaining.

    Andy Serkis is engaging, as always, and this is an interesting departure from his nice guy characters. The humor and horror are well-mixed and the the action is well-paced. Worth a watch!

    A surprisingly fun little "horror" film that delivers on gore, laughs and unpredictability.

    "TWO DUMB BROTHERS, A KNIDNAPPED BLONDE AND A MUTILATED KILLER. - 'The Cottage' is a 2008 British horror comedy from director Paul Andrew Williams. The story begins as a comical hostage-movie as two idiotic brothers have kidnapped the daughter of a crime lord, but turns out bloody as the characters encounter a mutilated killer. I must say that was entertaining to a certain level, but I was not blown away by it. The gore-effects were good. Starring Andy Serkis (Lord of the Rings saga, King Kong), Reece Shearsmith (Shaun of the Dead, At World's End) and Jennifer Ellison (The Phantom of the Opera). Brother David (Serkis) and Peter (Shearsmith) have kidnapped the beautiful Tracey (Ellison), stepdaughter of underground crime lord. They are working together with Tracey's stepbrother Andrew, who is instructed to deliver a ransom in exchange for Tracey. But the plan fails and when Tracey escapes from the cottage where she is held, the men will have to do everything they can to find her back. Unknowingly, all of them end up at a nearby farm, where the psychopathic owner has a special welcome in stall for them. Who will survive the night?
