With veterans of such minor modern genre classics as "Hobo With a Shotgun" (producers Paul Gross and Frank Siracusa) and "Tucker and Dale vs Evil" (Tyler Labine) on the roster, it's difficult to see how director Peter Wellington's dark comedy "Cottage Country" could go wrong. In the film's trailer, below, Todd Chipowski (Labine) sees a romantic weekend idyll at his family's lake house turn sour due to his interloping brother (Dan Petronijevic), who he ends up catching in the neck with an axe.

With veterans of such minor modern genre classics as "Hobo With a Shotgun" (producers Paul Gross and Frank Siracusa) and "Tucker and Dale vs Evil" (Tyler Labine) on the roster, it's difficult to see how director Peter Wellington's dark comedy "Cottage Country" could go wrong. In the film's trailer, below, Todd Chipowski (Labine) sees a romantic weekend idyll at his family's lake house turn sour due to his interloping brother (Dan Petronijevic), who he ends up catching in the neck with an axe.

Chaos ensues as the hapless Todd conspires with his fiancée (Malin Akerman) to dispose of the evidence and do away with his brother's lady friend (Lucy Punch) before she gets wise. Clumsy and inept in the mechanics of both love and murder, the bloodied pair's deeds become increasingly grisly and frantic.

The film, slated originally for 2012 release, is currently seeking a distributor at the American Film Market.
