Tucker & Dale vs Evil
Tucker & Dale vs Evil is a hilariously gory, good-spirited horror comedy, doing for killer rednecks what Shaun of the Dead did for zombies. Tucker and Dale are two best friends on vacation at their dilapidated mountain house, who are mistaken for murderous backwoods hillbillies by a group of obnoxious, preppy college kids. When one of the students gets separated from her friends, the boys try to lend a hand, but as the misunderstanding grows, so does the body count. Tucker & Dale vs Evil has been a hit on the festival circuit, debuting at Sundance, and winning the Midnight Audience Award at… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Here's something you don't see every day: a genial, politically correct splatter comedy."
‑ Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader
"It's time we all toss our nine bucks into the proverbial woodchipper (don't ask me what proverb) and spit out enough money to make Tucker & Dale and other truly deserving, truly funny indie flicks a blazing success."
‑ Christine Champ, Film.com
"If you've seen your share of teenagers getting sliced and diced out in the boondocks, chances are you'll be tickled pink by this tale of a couple of good-natured bumpkins who are mistaken for serial murderers."
‑ Jeremy Wheeler, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Tucker and Dale vs Evil is deliciously fun satire -- and, once all the blood has been spilt, offers an interesting riff on the line between hero and horror villain."
‑ Ben Kendrick, ScreenRant
"I doubt that anyone who isn't well familiar with slasher movie tropes will completely understand all the jokes... but they should at least get a couple laughs out of it."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Students of the Little Movie Glossary may find it funny how carefully "Tucker and Dale" works its way through upended cliches."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"There's even a message under all the body parts: People are individuals, not just easy regional stereotypes."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Although attitude is more important than plot in spoofs like this, Tucker & Dale's storyline does have the right sort of momentum."
‑ Lewis Beale, News & Observer, Raleigh, NC
"There is nothing very deep about this movie, but it is surprisingly funny for a slasher film."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"By the time the action-packed, thoroughly tedious climax rolls around, Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil has established itself as a missed opportunity of disappointingly epic proportions..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"At its heart, it's really just a one-idea premise stretched out to feature length, but the lovable duo of Tudyk and Labine and an endearing layer of sweetness under all the blood make it a fully enjoyable comedy of (t)errors."
‑ Keith Staskiewicz, Entertainment Weekly
"Essentially a student film offering nothing but absurdly contrived coincidence."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"Everyone seems to be having a jolly good time, though I'm still not sure what they're satirizing."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"... a far-fetched but bloody fun film that doesn't talk down to its target audience so much as it celebrates fans of the genre."
‑ Kevin A. Ranson, MovieCrypt.com
"Silly one-joke spoof horror/comedy about rednecks and college students together in the woods."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
