World Exclusive: The Cottage Trailer
Going wild in the country

28 January 2008  |  Written by Glen Ferris

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.

Sorry Empire, unless you mean that it's the Internet's world exclusive- you are wrong as I saw this excellent trailer at my local Cineworld last week when I watched the Coen's wonderful No Country for Old Men More

I wasn't that impressed with London to Brighton but this looks great. We have had the trailer playing at work for couple of weeks now, the poster is fantastic and the tone looks very promising More

has eveyone lost their sense?
god, this looks about as good as hancock, with the added seal of shiteness that is being a british comedy (pegg and wright excepted)...i'll put money down right now that this will suck. badly. and for a long time. oh, and the fact that Ellison wasnt even allowed to speak in the trailer speaks volumes...

looks good. Misleading trailer though. Is it suposed to be a comedy? Cos the song and comedy people getting hit in the face with things suggested it was. Its the Weather man all over again! More

RE: Brilliant
Hmm, only thing i can say about this is that when i went to see Walk Hard on the 22nd, either i had one of the best trailer reels ever, or this isn't that much of a 'world exclusive' because i had both this trailer and the trailer for In Bruges, a few days before Empire had the 'exclusive' for in Bruges and almost an entire week before this one! Seriously empire, have words with whomever give you these 'exclusives' because their just not very exclusive More

RE: Brilliant
L: dave_0989 I think this is really briliant, i haven't seen london to brighto but i wll now,andy serkis and reece sheersmith lok like they are having a world of fun and jenner ellison is perfectlycast as the hot totty efinately, shes well hot. Looks like a laugh does this, in the sickest way possible. it does look quite entertaining though, i dont think ive let out a more manic laugh while people are having spines and skulls ripped out a la mr predator; which is quite worrying More

We truly are the best in the world at this. Everything from Dog Soldiers to Shaun of the Dead is so far ahead of US 'horror' it's unreal. Great stuff. Will certainly be going to see this. 2008 is shaping up very nicely. Indy 4, Bond 22 and some wicked Brit horror! More
