Product Description

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.

Slapdash Scary Movie cycle aside, the slasher genre has proven fairly resistant to effective satire, mainly because the movies themselves already go so far over the top. (After Jason goes to space, where else can you possibly go?) Arriving amidst some monster film festival buzz, Tucker & Dale vs. Evil scores big laughs by slyly inverting the formula, casting the standard backwoods maniacs as bewildered everymen surrounded by accident-prone teens. While it may basically be a one-joke movie, it sustains that joke for a remarkably long time. Kicking off with an effective Blair Witch jab, the story follows Tucker (Alan Tudyk) and Dale (Tyler Labine), two good-natured good ol' boys with aims of fixing up their rickety cabin in the woods into a vacation home. Before they've emptied their first six-pack, they find themselves besieged by a group of stereotypical college kids who start dying in increasingly bizarre ways around them. As the bodies stack like cordwood, the duo's obliviousness only grows. First-time director-cowriter Eli Craig clearly knows his subject material well, trotting out the skinny-dipping coeds and conveniently placed sharp implements with relish, particularly with a wood chipper that really should have received a supporting actor credit. Clever as the concept is, though, it wouldn't stretch nearly as far without the performances, most notably Labine as a Bigfootish idiot savant and 30 Rock's Katrina Bowden as a Final Girl fully aware of the situation's absurdity. Although the invention may sputter at times, Tucker & Dale provides enough amiable chuckles and ridiculous gore to satisfy even the snootiest genre fan. For the sequel, can we get them near a rocket? --Andrew Wright

5.0 out of 5 stars "This vacation sucks" August 22, 2011
Ever seen a horror movie with hillbillies in it? They're usually psychotic chainsaw-swinging inbred cannibal psychos who like to murder anyone who happens to drive by.

But don't expect any of THAT to actually appear in "Tucker & Dale Vs Evil," a clever black comedy that asks, "What if the HILLBILLIES were the innocent victims of the doomed college kids?" Tropes are inverted (or lampshaded), there's gore aplenty, and Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine make endearingly rough-hewn heroes.

West Virginia hillbillies Dale (Labine) and Tucker (Tudyk) have just bought a dilapidated little house out by a remote lake, and plan to spend some time fishing and drinking beer. They also end up rescuing Allison (Katrina Bowden), a college student who hit her head while swimming, and she soon finds that these seemingly terrifying hillbillies are actually kind, gentle and sometimes quite smart.

Unfortunately, Allison's friends get the wrong idea, and think that she's being held captive by a pair of chainsaw-swinging psychos. As they try to attack Dale and Tucker, they end up accidentally dying in bizarre and gory ways. As Dale, Tucker and Allison try to defuse the situation, they also have to deal with the increasingly bloodthirsty Chad (Jesse Moss).

I have no idea why it's taken so long for "Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil" to make it onto DVD, because this movie is absolutely hilarious -- a gory, satirical little comedy that acknowledges every hillbilly-slasher cliche right before turning it on its ear. And yes, writer/director Eli Craig homages many a horror movie, from "Evil Dead" to "Friday the 13th."

And even though it's obviously a spoof, "Tucker & Dale Vs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Director Eli Craig must have a PhD in Sam Raimiology! October 30, 2011
The set up is a lot like the recent installments of the Texas Chainsaw and Hills Have Eyes franchises or Wrong Turn. A group of college kids go camping in the woods. They're unnerved by the backwoods, hillbilly-chic locals. And, naturally, they suspect the worst of them. Perhaps for the first time in horror movie history, these kids assumptions were wrong.

Tucker (Alan Tudyk; A Knight's Tale, 28 Days) and Dale (Tyler Labine; Rise of the Planet of the Apes, TV's Mad Love) are two loveable, kind-intentioned idiots on a bro-mantic fishing trip. Their interactions with the campers are misconstrued such that they appear to have performed malevolent deeds. After nearly drowning, Tucker and Dale save Ally (Katrina Bowden; Piranha 3D, 30 Rock) of the girls. But when they pull her into their boat and yell "we have your friend" to the others, it is perceived that they "took" her and then cruelly goaded them. Naturally, when Ally regains consciousness, she thinks she's been abducted.

Just from the trailer I think everyone knew that this would just "work" on film. This was Eli Craig's first job as director (he wrote this, too) and I'm itching to see what he does next. He took a smart comic premise and peppered in some solid doses of Sam Raimi-esque gore. As the kids try to "rescue" Ally from her "captors" they get accidently killed under silly circumstances delivered with perfect timing. A true horror hound, I tend to laugh at many of the kills in serious horror flicks. But this movie invites all to join in the laughter as mulched entrails shower over the face of a mortified friend.

American Psycho and the Scream franchise may have mastered the slasher movie satire. But this stands out as more of a paramount slasher movie farce, much as Shaun of the Dead was for zombie fare.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Satire September 21, 2011
Very infrequently do you see a movie that blends its satired source with comedy as well as Tucker & Dale vs. Evil has. When you find yourself laughing out loud as teenagers hurl themselves into wood chippers, impale themselves on tree branches or set one another ablaze you realize that the horror element is vastly outweighed by the ironic humor that the entire piece is littered with.

If you're comfortable with a little blood and a little cursing then this movie will be a surefire winner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Movie-Going Experience of 2010 April 22, 2011
Truly the best time I've had at a movie in a long while. My wife and I got lucky and got the last two tickets available at the Milwaukee Film Fest, and I'm so glad we got in. Laughed our heads off (similar fate for many of the characters in the movie, minus the laughing). I'm absolutely floored it hasn't gotten a US release. It's funny, original, well-acted and directed - right there better than most movies. Put this on your must-see list.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Awesome April 13, 2011
I generally don't enjoy parodies, but this one is special. Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine are superbly cast in these roles and pull off some hilariously scenes with a sincerity that makes them simultaneously emotionally touching. The funniest film I have seen is a LONG time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best spoof ever! March 5, 2011
What a tired, old plot. Innocent, fun-loving hillbillies being terrorized by psycho college students out in the woods! Who hasn't seen that before? Everyone in this movie is a riot. Funny, funny movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars is not enough! December 3, 2011
I watched this movie yesterday. I bought it on a whim. Today, I'm still recovering! I laughed, I laughed some more, then I laughed until I thought I might pass out. I'm certain that my face changed colors a few times.
This movie takes where horror spoofs ( Scary Movie specifically) went wrong and fixes a few things. If you took Friday the 13th, Evil Dead, Cabin Fever, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and mixed them with Bud Abbott and Lou Costello, you would get Tucker and Dale vs Evil.
On a final note; beer cures everything from depression, bee stings and severed body parts.
Now, a word of warning.
Be careful when eating popcorn while watching may get choked.
