The Cottage is a film that knows how to play to its strengths, namely making the most of its modest budget and not even attempting to break the B-movie glass ceiling.

'The Cottage' doesn't have enough horror to satisfy horror fans and not enough comedy to satisfy everybody else.

The degree to which the movie is redeemed by its impossible-to-anticipate third act is consequently quite staggering...

The Cottage, against the odds, makes a better caper movie than gore flick.

Broad comedy and splattery horror are a pretty tough combo to pull off, but if anyone can do it ... the British can.

lively if programmatic horror pic

It's a rural retreat to base jokes - and it needed to be a lot cleverer than this to make it a glorious retreat.

Nice performances from Shearsmith and Serkis, and some outrageous ketchupy grossout, though I have to say The Cottage has nothing like the rigour, originality or power of Williams's debut.

This film is fabulously deranged.

From the miasma of mediocrity known as modern British horror emerges a low-budget fright film that deserves to be remembered alongside homegrown classics such as Shaun Of The Dead.

This is cartoon carnage with a slightly surreal twist - most notably in Peter's encounter with a swarm of moths - but the developing bond between the brothers makes it surprisingly poignant too. All things considered, you'll forgive the shaky parts.

If you loved L2B's social-realist integrity, you'll be bemused by Williams' 180-degree turn into Guignol and gut-busting. A labour of love that's sometimes plain laboured, but a stronger, splattery second half will curry favour with gorehounds.

Andy Serkis shouts a lot, as if raising the decibel level will compensate for the dire dialogue, while Jennifer Ellison displays more cleavage than acting ability.

With all the meaty goodness of Neil Marshall's Dog Soldiers, The Cottage offers solid Brit-horror nourishment.

Frightfest regulars and hungry gorehounds will get a kick out of this, but those who hailed Williams as a Brit-indie visionary after London To Brighton might be left scratching their heads.

If there's a more depressing release this year then God help us all.

Williams' story twists and turns...veering from Coen caper to Hooper horror -- but the one unifying constant is the film's wicked streak of humour.
