Nice performances from Shearsmith and Serkis, and some outrageous ketchupy grossout, though I have to say The Cottage has nothing like the rigour, originality or power of Williams's debut.
This film is fabulously deranged.
This is cartoon carnage with a slightly surreal twist - most notably in Peter's encounter with a swarm of moths - but the developing bond between the brothers makes it surprisingly poignant too. All things considered, you'll forgive the shaky parts.
Andy Serkis shouts a lot, as if raising the decibel level will compensate for the dire dialogue, while Jennifer Ellison displays more cleavage than acting ability.March 14, 2008 | Rating: 1/6 | Full Review…
Frightfest regulars and hungry gorehounds will get a kick out of this, but those who hailed Williams as a Brit-indie visionary after London To Brighton might be left scratching their heads.
Audience Reviews for The Cottage
Aug 16, 2011Wow...that's not what I expected. So, this is a british dark comedy film that has plenty of good bloody moments. The humor was pretty funny, and the story was good...the only problem is that this was definately, a "Hatchet Wanna-be." They copied Hatchet a little too much, with the same humor, and even the same death scenes! It was still good, though. Hope for a sequel, an hope it's not another "Hatchet II Wanna-be."Jacob P Super Reviewer
May 15, 2010starring Andy Serkis The guy that played Pinhead is in here as well. Well at least what is suppose to be scarry in it, you MIGHT flinch. Oh that face. Mm tell me do you think this one or leatherface is scarier? The foul mouth girl gave me a laugh a few times with the slew of insults she spews, but eventually that gets tired & sounds like it?s the same lines over & over. Basically it?s a bit of a ?silly? comedy Horror. Which is cool. (I don?t often find/hear of horror comedies) CKym (c my community profile) R Super Reviewer
Mar 26, 2010Funny yet scary horror movie. I like it.Dead A Super Reviewer
Mar 18, 2010First things first. Reece Shearsmith's character in The Cottage was one of the most annoying characters I've ever encountered in a movie. All his spineless cringing, screaming, and his general uselessness, made me want to climb somehow into the movie and kill him. Yes, I know the character was intentionally written that way, and in no manner is this a criticism of the movie. I'd actually like to commend the director, writer(s), and Reece himself, for creating such a thoroughly annoying character. Now, on to the review. I liked the first half of The Cottage more than the second. The initial half was fairly humorous, and gave off an enjoyably creepy vibe. I was eagerly anticipating the arrival of some vague threat, while gleefully cheering for Ellison's rather intimidating prisoner. Serkis was also in fine form, as his character struggled to salvage some kind of plan amidst the overwhelming incompetence of his cohorts. The second half of the movie is basically a decidedly average slasher-film. Not awful, but nothing special. I found myself missing the humor of the first 40 minutes. Depending on your preference for that genre, you may end up liking The Cottage more than I did. It only came to my attention because of the presence of Jennifer Ellison, but I'm glad that I ended up seeing it.Lewis C Super Reviewer
