Macabre...ish Horror Review: The Cottage
The Cottage, 2008. After an ill conceived attempt to kidnap one of the least kidnappable women around, Tracy, in order to extort money from her stepfather. In cahoots with her brother, two rival brothers (David and Peter) are forced into hiding in a secluded country house. Thwarted at every turn by Tracy, they are soon held captive by their own victim.
When they receive a bag of napkins instead of money, the brothers realize they’re screwed. Her stepdad has sent men armed with knives and cleavers to follow the bag and recover Tracy.
Think that’s bad, well it’s about to get a whole lot worse, for all of them, because soon they’ll encounter their psychotic axe wielding neighbor.
Tracy escapes, taking Peter with her to the nearest house which is the worst possible place to look for help. Following behind, David (Andy Serkis, LOTR) and her brother discover one of the henchmen, dead.
As the movie goes on it loses it’s light, funny air and gets much darker and deadlier. One by one, everyone dies.
Very graphic, gory, bloody, dismemberment, disembowelment, beheadings. Good effects, good cinematography.
This movie is 91 minutes long and offers English, French, Portuguese and Spanish subtitles and audio.
P.S. Keep watching past the credits
