Tucker & Dale vs. Evil is a hilariously gory, good-spirited horror comedy, doing for killer rednecks what Shaun of the Dead did for zombies.
Best friends Tucker and Dale are two lovable, West Virginian hillbillies headed up to their “fixer-upper” vacation cabin to drink some beer, do some fishin’, and just have an all-around good time.
But when they run into a group of obnoxious preppy college kids who assume from their looks that they must be in-bred, chainsaw wielding killers, Tucker & Dale’s vacation takes a bloody & hilarious turn for the worse. 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.
Watch the trailer for the film posted in the VIDEO box on the left side of the article.
Alan Tudyk (Dodgeball, A Knight’s Tale, TV’s Firefly) and Tyler Labine (Rise of the Planet of the Apes, TV’s Reaper) star as the film’s titular heroes and 30 Rock’s Katrina Bowden also stars. Tucker & Dale is the feature film debut of director/co-writer Eli Craig.
The film debuted at Sundance, won the Midnight Audience Award at SXSW, the Jury Prize for First Feature at Fantasia, and played at numerous other film festivals around the world. It has been very well received by critics and beloved by audiences everywhere. Definitely do not miss this movie, it is sure to be a whole lot of fun!
