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.Read more ›
For orignality I'd say 3/4 as well. While the kills were funny, they were a bit predictable.
I like how this film was shot. I like how the actors protrayed their charachters especially Tucker & Dale. I love how they have no clue as to what is going on with the crazy college kids committing suicide around them. The paniced discussion inside the cabin as to what the "college kids" are doing was one of the funniest scenes.
As far as plot goes, there is a thin one but this movie doesn't really need a plot as much as the comedy kills combined with no one asking anyone the simple question "What's going on?" with the exception of Alison and the hillbillies!
I didn't go into this movie expecting much. I'm glad I was wrong!
Well worth a laugh! This is a light, fun, horror/comedy. Get your buddies, get some pizza and your favorite beverages, and have a good laugh.
I bought this on a recommendation from a friend. For a relatively unknown and low budget film, it is really well written, acted and directed. Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine have a great chemistry and their acting performances (along with everyone else) are excellent. The plot is pretty damn good and funny. The Blu Ray extras are decent, nothing spectacular except for the extra where they re-edit the film so it is told from the side of the teens which I really enjoyed.
This film was not well known at the time I stumbled across it. I generally browse IMDB.com looking for movies with good reviews and when I came across this title, I was a bit skeptical. I thought, oh, another spoof. Then I satisfied my curiousity and watched the trailer and I literally laughed so hard I nearly peed myself at the trailer. I knew I had to watch it. When I did, I had to rewind a few times so I could catch what I missed while laughing out loud. Movies that do that to me are few and far between so it was very refreshing to finally be absorbed by this movie's surpirsingly great story about these poor, innocent rednecks who just want to do up their new holiday trailer. It's a great twist on you typical horror film. Although, I can't really categorize it as horror, or a comedy at that. It has everything! It has laughs, gore, scares, a relatable love story, suspense, action, and a sliver of drama! I cannot stress enough how much you, the reader, will enjoy this film. The dialogue is so well written and the actors are all so great. This movie will not disappoint to entertain you and want to share with your friends! I wish I could give it more than five stars. I watch a LOT of movies, so trust me when I say this movie is excellent! This movie deserves more marketing. It saddens me to see how little distribution this film got. Please buy or rent it. It will not disappoint.
