Tucker And Dale V.S. Evil
Dir: Eli Craig
Starring: Tyler Labine (Zack and Miri make a Porno/Reaper)
Alan Tuclyk (Death at a Funeral/Dodgeball)
In the tradition of horror Comedies like Shaun Of the Dead comes this twist on the redneck camp killer genre.
The Story follows a group of college kids as they head to the woods for the usual sex and drug induced antics when they run across two local Rednecks Tucker and Dale who are on their way to the same woods to fix up a cabin they just purchased to fix up and make into their vacation home. Right away the college kids imagination and stereotyping gets the best of them and they immediately think these rednecks are backwoods madmen, And this is not helped when the shy Dale tries to approach one of the girls to make friends and awkwardly comes off a bit creepy. Once the Kids make it to their camp grounds they decide to go for a skinny dip and one of the groups girls, Alison falls off a small cliff and almost drowns until Dale comes to the save. The group see's the hillbillies dragging their friend into their boat and assume the worse. The following morning the group decides to try and save their friend while one heads to town to alert the authorities.
Gore:7 ( From what I got to see this one is pretty good by todays standards)
Nudity:2 (Only one pair of boobs in the entire film and those are shown from a distance)
Story:7 (Pretty original take on the Horror Comedy and plays out really well)
Characters:7 (Dale and Tucker are played perfectly and the rest come off as douches , which is what they are supposed to be , so it works)
Overall: 7 out of 10 ( Truly a fun watch and I highly recommend it to fans of humor with their horror)
