There was a review of it in this evenings Oxford Mail that was less than glowing, though did say that Reece was the best thing in it.


I am looking forward to seeing it anyway!

I had a REALLY scary, utterly horrific, violent and gory dream about Reece in The Cottage the other, so bad that it's made me really scared to go watch.
*blubs sadly*
I'm going to try go, but the sickness of my brain has scared me :(

Ewww! And hug! You should probably wait till it comes out on DVD. Seeing it on the big screen might freak you out!

'The Cottage' special on Sky Premiere

Postby Geoff Tipps' Joke Writer » Tue Mar 25, 2008 1:33 pm

For anyone who has Sky Premiere they are screening a 15 minute special on 'The Cottage' this week at 1.40am (!) Its advertised as being on every night at this time but its not always shown (I saw it on Easter Day or rather the early hours of Easter Monday)

Its a very interesting promo film with plenty of on set footage (including behind the scenes as the film score is recorded - you can see Reece watching the proceedings in the recording booth) and on set interviews with the director Paul Andrew Williams, Reece, Andy Serkis and Jennifer Ellison.

Its being shown a couple of times on Sky Horror/Sci Fi film channel as well. It only seems to be on this week so anyone wanting to watch you can Sky plus it or set your alarm clock...

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!

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


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.
