Tucker & Dale vs. Evil

UK Release Date: 23rd September 2011

Tucker & Dale are on vacation at their dilapidated mountain cabin when they are attacked by a group of preppy college kids (

Director: Eli Craig 

Starring: Tyler Labine, Alan Tudyk, Katrina Bowden

It's best to approach Tucker & Dale vs. Evil on a whim. Having previously watched horrors like Wrong Turn and The Hills Have Eyes will add significant satire. Tucker (Tudyk) and Dale (Labine) are your average red-necks; harmless on the inside even if a little intimidating on the outside. They're on vacation at their new 'cabin in the woods'. Travelling in their proximity is a group of college kids who think Tucker and Dale mean them harm. The key message here is to not judge a book by its cover. The preppy youngsters attack the hillbilly duo because they think they're attacking them. The events that unfold thereafter mock all serious gore films. It's genuinely funny, sporting the look of a horror and the feel of a comedy. The freak accidents threatening to kill off all the preps will have you in stitches, whilst Tucker and Dale are blissfully (or stupidly) unaware of how bad things are getting. The film's consistent, playing against all traditions. Tucker & Dale vs. Evil isn't one to miss.
