I have finally seen The Cottage and i liked it :D It really reminded me of Dog Soldiers. It was funny and gory. Jennifer Ellison can actually act a little! :shock:

I'll put this in small writing so i don't spoil it for those who haven't seen it yet:

The bit with the heads on the shelves when the farmer appeared suddenly scared the crap outta me! :lol:

Just watched this and whilst not a classic of british horror cinema I did rather enjoy it. Reece and Andy Serkis were superb and (at least I thought) the script was really very original (in so far as a horror script can be - there is nothing new under the sun in this genre!) Plus I thought the direction was superb.

I thought it was fuuny and horrific in the right measure, though some of the special effects were a bit, well not very good, but this was a low budget production, so this can be forgiven.

Jennifer Ellison was the weak link in it all, letting it down rather but she did have a couple of good points! :wink: (stop groaning at the back there!) Plus she was decapitated* so I felt well rewarded! I liked the bit with the hairdresser as well, I was thinking, who is he and when it was revealed I laughed out loud! Maybe Im just easily pleased!

I'm glad I never went to cinema to see this and bought it cheap on DVD, but found it enjoyable on the whole.

I quite liked that it was a half decapitation just over her jaw bone. It was more grusome some how that you could see her teeth!

Perversely, I'm glad I saw it AT the cinema. I do enjoy seeing proper gorey horror up there on the big screen. It's got more impact.

There are two easter eggs, Paul. One is a f**kometer, giving a tally of all the swearing through the film (it numbs your brain to swearing!!) and the other is of Ellison's audition tape.

The other good extra is the deleted scene of Reece getting directions from an old woman in the village. VERY League of Gentlemen.
And I'll stay here till the trail's cold and return again with my meaty gold
You want it! You can't get enough of Hilary Briss and his special stuff...

It's ok. By the time I get to see it I'll probably have forgotten what is was anyway... :wink: :lol:

Is the dvd worth buying for the extras?

Wasn't too bowled over by the film.

I'm not quite through them all, but to be honest, I'm glad I never paid the £20.00 for it.

I reckon get it on ebay or in the shops, I think it is destined for reduction.

I quite enjoyed the making of feature.

I really enjoyed it. After watching severance the future of brit horror comedy's looked bleak but after watching this i was proven wrong.

Very funny and pretty gruesome.
