The Cottage

I thought this was going to be an all-out gore fest and whilst it does end up that way it's actually a surprisingly dark comedy. Kong Golem and the guy from League of Gentleman are brothers who botch the kidnap of Jennifer Ellison and hide out in the country not knowing there's a madman living nearby.

It's a pretty straightforward plot bordering on the "Stay off the moors" vibe in American Werewolf in London. The performances are OK with King Golem being particularly good and Ellison being equally gobby; in fact her performance has to be one of the most swearing-filled dialogues ever (and I've seen South Park)

It was also good to see the guy who played Spudgun in Bottom appearing, his part provides most of the mirth in the movie.
