Forced into hiding after their kidnapping plan goes awry, two rival siblings, David (Andy Serkis) and Peter (Reece Shearsmith), find themselves fighting for their sanity while they hole up in a secluded country cottage. Weighed down by a hostage who refuses to stay quiet, or tied down, they are soon held captive by their own victim (Jennifer Ellison). But everyone's problems go from bad to worse when they come face-to-face with their psychotic axe-wielding neighbor (Dave Legeno) - a demented farmer with a dark, nasty secret buried where you'd least expect.

Also starring Steven O'Donnell, Simon Schatzenberger, Logan Wong, Jonathan Chan-Pensley, Johnny Harris, and Doug Bradley.

Written & directed by Paul Andrew Williams.

Criminally underappreciated horror comedy gem with a terrific cast, particularly Serkis, Shearsmith, and Ellison.

The poster is just awful and makes this look like some kind of grim torture porn horseshit. It's emphatically not. It's more like a UK comedy interrupted by bonkers horror.

Super, super fun. Highly recommend.

Thank you for reminding me of this one. I saw it years ago and enjoyed it but, it's definitely time for a rewatch.
