'The Cottage' trailer preview at Fright Fest 2007

Post by Geoff Tipps' Joke Writer » Mon Aug 27, 2007 11:29 am

I were lucky enough to attend a sneak preview of the trailer for 'The Cottage' during Fright Fest last night, followed by an appearance and short Q & A session with Reece, the film's director Paul Andrew Williams, the producer Ken Marshall and Dave Legeno who also features in the film. It was the first time footage from the film had been shown to an audience so we were very privileged.

Seeing the trailer makes me more excited about 'The Cottage' than ever...it looks BLOODY BRILLIANT in both senses of the phrase - very, very funny and very, very gory! :D

Also, from what was said during the short interview afterwards, at the core of the film is the relationship between the two brothers, played by Reece and Andy Serkis, so that you care about the characters and what happens to them...something that too many horror films have lacked, especially in recent years.

The trailer got a tremendous reception from the audience! :D

According to what was said at the event 'The Cottage' is due for release in March next year.

It looks like its going to be WELL WORTH waiting for! :D :D

For everyone who's interested, here's a video of the recording session of 'The Cottage' score (that Reece seemed so pleased about, as mentioned in his recent blog) that has been posted up on YouTube by the film's director Paul Andrew Williams.

'The Cottage' - release date?

Post by Geoff Tipps' Joke Writer » Thu Dec 06, 2007 2:43 pm

'The Cottage' is scheduled for release on 14th March next year according to the film's director Paul Andrew Williams on IMDb website.

The Pathe Films website has a selection of stills from the film...

www.pathe.co.uk/

I've put in the link but it might not work. If it doesn't just put Pathe Films or Pathe.co.uk in Google and it should come up.

Then click on Coming Soon then on The Cottage and then on Stills...there are about six stills from the film.

Screening of The Cottage

Post by Juliet Bravo » Mon Dec 10, 2007 4:59 pm

Well I had the good fortune of attending the screening of "The Cottage" on sunday morning at the Curzon theatre in the west end. Oh my goodness... what a great film. Andy Serkis and Reece work so well together - and I think actually it is the best performance Reece has ever given. The film itself is horrific, funny and ultimately very moving... it is so strange and surprising. I don't want to say much about it really - it demands to be watched with as little spoilt as possible. But the audience really responded to it. Reece is unrecognisable in it - he looks so much older... but that just shows what a great actor he is. Its not a flattering part. But he is funny and subtle and brings so much to the role. Jennifer Ellison is surprisingly good too - and I actually met the director who was lovely. I saw Reece at the end but didn't approach him as he looked very serious and rather distracted! But at leat his hair was back!!

'The Cottage' sounds fantastic. Thank you Juliet Bravo for your report about this special preview screening last Sunday.

I was lucky enough to see a prolonged preview trailer at Frightfest back in August and can only echo what she says about the film (from what I saw of it) & Reece's performance.

Media screening of 'The Cottage'...

Post by Geoff Tipps' Joke Writer » Thu Jan 17, 2008 11:52 am

I were very lucky to attend a media screening of 'The Cottage' on Tuesday, thanks to a very kind contact. I took a friend along who was very keen to see the film as well (they are a big fan of The League too & as she had missed seeing Reece in a performance of 'The Producers' in Cardiff she was due to go to cos she was ill I thought I'd make up for it by getting her a ticket to this preview screening)

Anyway, it's a great film, full of twists and turns - an exhilarating 90 minutes.

The film takes an original and unusual approach for a horror film which contains some very gory elements in that there is so much emotional investment in the main characters. Its this which makes the film stand out. There is an emotional depth that makes you care about them and what happens to them, especially in the relationship between the two brothers played by Reece and Andy Serkis.

All the cast are excellent but Reece is truly outstanding - a very funny, wimpish, likeable, pathetic, vulnerable almost tragic character. He really does hold the film together - it's a brilliantly subtle and multilayered performance. He brings so much to the role, not only comedically, but emotionally too.

The Cottage is a superb mix of comedy and horror with a set of great characters at the heart of it. You care about them and the circumstances that have brought them together. Much of the comedy comes from the interaction between the central characters and how they react to the ever worsening situation they find themselves thrust into. There is some very impressive gore as well and a real sense of sadness at the heart of the film. Its brilliantly scripted and superbly directed.

It's just a great film, not just a great horror-comedy film.

Both Reece and the film's director Paul Andrew Williams were at the screening. I'm so pleased Ellie (the friend who went with me) got to talk to Reece cos I know she really wanted to after not managing to at the Phoenix Cinema event.

I really wanted to speak to him, to congratulate him on the film and his performance, but I was just too scared. :(

Anyway, I hope we can support this film and Reece and all go to see it when it comes out in March. He really does shine in the film!

I'm so glad you and Ellie enjoyed the film, Debs. I must say, the gore makes me very happy so I'll be first in line with my ticket.

However, is this film going to be on general distribution? Even the Gents film didn't get showed in the multiplex nearest to me. :(
