Cottage, The (2008, GBR) C-92m. SCOPE ** D: Paul Andrew Williams. Starring Andy Serkis, Reece Shearsmith, Steven O'Donnell, Jennifer Ellison, Dave Legeno. Self-professed horror comedy about two first-time criminals who have kidnapped a young woman and hope for a big ransom. However, their plan goes awry, especially when they meet the Leatherface-farmer next door. Starts out extremely weak, and never really recovers, although horror fans might find some value in final thirty minutes. O'Donnell really must be going through the worst day of his life! Uneven script by the director makes rather pointless reference to the TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE series.
