Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil

I love a good splatter-flick that’s also a lot of fun, and Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil did not disappoint.

Best friends Tucker (Dear Wash Alan Tudyk, I ❤ you!) and Dale (who happen to be PBR-drinking hillbillies) are headed up to their “summer home” – a newly purchased cabin in the middle of the woods where they can drink, hunt, and fish in quiet and solitude.

On the way there, they run into a group of snotty college kids who immediately brand them creepy…so later then they’re seen pulling one of the girls (Alison, played by Katrina Bowden from 30 Rock) from the water and throwing her in their boat, the college kids assume T&D are backwoods serial killers, bent on torturing and murdering their friend.

What follows is a series of unfortunate misunderstandings, which leads to bloodier and bloodier mishaps, ramping up the body count and getting Tucker and Dale into more and more trouble.

There’s splatter everywhere in this one, and it’s great, but everything is also all done with a touch of humor – and a clever nod to classic slasher film history. I don’t know if I’ve ever branded a horror film “cute” before, but if any film deserves it, it’s this one. Also, I don’t want to give anything away, but the chainsaw bit is definitely my favorite part.

Definitely recommended!
