Chloe and Michael have only been married a few years. They’ve been having trouble helping Michael’s kids adjust to the union. During their family’s turmoil, a charming author decides to move into their cottage.

I believe the most important thing about a movie is that it holds your interest. Let’s face it, if you can’t pay attention, or you’re bored, it’s not going to matter how good the film is.

The Cottage was guilty of being incredibly slow and lacking any attempt at suspense.

Either the writer or the director decided that the word suspense simply meant looking at stuff. Maybe the actors played a part too, since the dramatic chipmunk video does a better job of portraying suspense through turning around.

Whatever the problem was, I find myself exhausted due to sheer boredom. I’m in desperate need of a nap after sitting through that film.

The plot wasn’t completely terrible. I found that there was some mild creepiness when they weren’t trying too hard.

I wouldn’t recommend anyone watch this one by choice, unless you have insomnia. This movie will work better than any sleeping pill on the market.
