World Exclusive: The Cottage Trailer

Going wild in the country

Fancy treating yourself to a world exclusive first look trailer for The Cottage? Yes? Well, you're in luck, 'cos we've got it right here.

Paul Andrew Williams' follow-up to his gritty, hard-hitting and decidedly bleak directorial debut, London To Brighton, is not what you would have expected - a horror-comedy starring ex-Brooksider Jennifer Ellison - but it's shaping up to be a bloody good laugh.

A world away from his familiar territory of punch-drunk prostitutes and violent pimps, Williams’ sophomore effort finds Gangster's daughter Tracey (Ellison) kidnapped by brothers David (Andy Serkis) and Peter (Reece Shearsmith) and dim-wit Andrew (Steven O’Donnell) and forced to hole up at a secluded country cottage.

Attempting to stay hidden from the mob boss and his henchmen, the kidnappers and kidnappee find themselves in a whole bunch of trouble of a different sort when an evil farmer shows up with murder on his mind.

Your typical maniac-laying-siege-to-a-remote-farmhouse flick is given a comedic twist and a quick squizz at the trailer certainly demonstrates the film's tongue-in-cheek, axe-in-head approach to the genre and it's shaping up to be one to watch out for when it's released in March.
