The Cottage

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

In the dead of night, a car arrives at a secluded country cottage. Bickering constantly, brothers David and Peter climb out to inspect the hideaway. It seems just perfect for their plans. Although barely on speaking terms, the pair have set aside their differences for a quick money making scheme, the kidnapping of mob boss Arnie's daughter, who they plan to hold to ransom. Tracey, bound, gagged and unconscious, is locked in the trunk of the car.
 
Aiding them in their ploy is Tracey's black sheep step-brother Andrew. Screaming threats and violent insults, Tracey fights like a wildcat and the hapless trio begin to panic and argue amongst themselves, totally unaware that Andrew was followed. Outside, two of Arnie's most feared henchmen are already circling the cottage.

With Arnie on his way and the game almost up, Tracey turns the tables on her captors and, with Peter as her hostage, escapes through the nearby woods seeking refuge in a remote farmhouse in the hope of finding a telephone to alert her father.

As David and Andrew close in on her trail, they soon discover something far more terrifying is lurking in the darkness, The Farmer, a monstrous, blood-thirsty serial killer, and the stage is set for a grotesquely comic battle for survival.
