A confident mix of comedy and horror, Tucker & Dale Vs Evil brings together Firefly star Alan Tudyk and Reaper’s Tyler Labine as a pair of hillbillies. More to the point, they’re a pair of hillbillies who have bought themselves a secluded cabin in the middle of the woods. Anyone who’s seen even a handful of horror movies will have be more than familiar with the conventions that are being set up, and might just be settling back for a dose of the familiar.

But they don’t really get it. Instead, Tucker & Dale Vs Evil chooses to play up the comedy, thanks to writer-director Eli Craig’s very good script. It’s a screenplay that accepts and warms to the trappings of a horror movie, and then has a great deal of fun playing with them. Thus, when a bunch of students turn up in the middle of the woods, things don’t quite go the way that many will be expecting.

It’s odd that Tucker & Dale Vs Evil never really secured itself the broader theatrical exposure it deserves, because it’s a really smart film. Granted, it’s bereft of outright movie stars, but the pairing of Tudyk and Labine proves inspired, and Craig is wise enough to keep his running time nice and tight.

Tucker & Dale Vs Evil is far from the most ambitious film of recent times. But it’s certainly one of the funniest. It throws in the necessary gore quotient expected by fans of the horror genre, but delivers far more solid laughs that its relative anonymity might lead you to expect. It’s pretty much the epitome, then, of an undercover gem. --Jon Foster

Product Description

In the vein of Shaun of the Dead, Tucker ' Dale is a wild, wonky tale of two hillbilly buddies trying to survive their vacation in the woods when they are mistaken for killers by a gang of college kids. Our heroes valiantly save one of the college girls from drowning but are accused of wrongdoing. The chase ensues, not treating the students too well, leaving us with a gory but hilarious tale of two hillbillies and their hearts of gold.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming and funny. Well worth your time. 10 May 2011
Tucker & Dale are two charming hillbillies, happy within themselves but shy out of their comfort zone.

Their lives are invaded by a group of preppy college students who, through a series of unfortunate events believe them to be hillbillies of the murdering kind. The film is a parody of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre genre, something it nods to on more than one occasion.

Tucker & Dale are very likeable characters and you will find yourself rooting for them. Dale in particular has a very sweet relationship with one girls and it's charming to watch. But the real point of this film is the comedy and it does this very well. There's a part of me that wants to point out that the misunderstandings that lead to the humour are quite slapstick and sometimes you can see them coming. But this isn't a criticism, there is no arguing with the fact that the film is laugh-out-loud funny for a good amount of time, it's just an observation.

Good comedies have been thin on the ground this year so this is a real gem. Watch it, you'll like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars So overlooked! 15 Aug 2011
I can't believe that such an amazing film had so little publicity or distribution - I am so excited that it will finally be released!
As an avid horror fan, I had no expectations for Tucker and Dale. I basically watch anything and everything, and seeing as this was low-budget with very little publicity, I underestimated this. It has since become one of my favourite movies ever.
Alan Tudyk is fantastic as always, and I had never seen Tyler Labine before but he basically steals the show. While the films it's ripping are pretty foul, T+D still manages to have a lot of heart, and Labine's character is so adorable!
This does for The Hills Have Eyes what Shaun did for Dawn Of The Dead, while kicking Zombieland in the privates. Unmissable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun 19 May 2011
If you're a fan of the 'Scream' series of film then you'll probably love this too. Group of stereotypical preppy American teens get the idea that a couple of lovable hillbillies are homicidal maniacs and only manage to hurt themselves by attacking them which serves to compound their fears and make things even worse. As in the Scream films some of the deaths are a little gruesome but the humour lightens it all and ends up being a great black comedy. Well worth a watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Film 28 May 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
So clever can not believe someone had not already made this film. Is so funny and fun. Great idea and great acting. Alan Tudyk is brilliant and got to love him being Wash from Firefly, but Tyler Labine (reaper, invasion) steals the show. This is a great film in the vein of scream or scary movie but so unique. Can not reccomend highly enough. So happy I have seen it. Get it when it comes out, a one of a kind film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 9 Aug 2011
This is a great film, I have the German edition blu ray version which looks fantastic and which I watched in English. It's a wonderful film about 2 really sweet guys (and they really are beautiful human beings) who are mistaken for killer hillbillies. It gets pretty sticky pretty fast. It made me laugh till I cried. Tucker and Dale are played by a couple of actors who are fairly well known and have done a number of TV and film roles (Tyler Labine as Dale, Alan Tudyk as Tucker).

This is a great film which I loved. Even Dale's hat was hysterical - Giv'er - a play on Mcgiver and his own giving personality.

Even the dog was hysterical.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rednecks are people, too! 14 Sep 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Think you've seen enough 'deranged redneck meet students' movies? Think again! Tucker & Dale vs. Evil turns the whole template on its head and it's the kids that are the problem. Tucker (Alan Tudyk) and Dale (Tyler Labine) are two quite innocent, well-meaning rednecks fixing up their dream cabin in the woods. However, when they rescue one of the female students from drowning, their call to the others of 'We've got your friend' is misinterpreted in the worse possible way and from then on things go to Hell in a handbasket. No good deed that Tucker and Dale try to do goes unpunished, leading to a truly demented finale. This is a classic 'splatstick' horror in the spirit of Peter Jackson's 'Braindead'. With plenty of deep-black comedy, gore and rug-pulls, this little gem deserves a much wider audience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally Hilarious Vs Excellent 18 Jun 2012
Tucker & Dale Vs Evil is a breath of fresh air. Although gory in parts, not only is it immensely enjoyable to watch, this feel good film is actually really funny. They say no good deed goes unpunished and Tucker & Dale's efforts to do the right thing are punished brutally, with college kids dying grisly deaths all around them.

The acting's very good, the jokes and script are funny, the slapstick deaths hilariously horrid and, all in all, it's just a very enjoyable film to watch. With two such likeable characters you really feel for the unfortunate rednecks as a series of catastrophic events unfold all around them. And the sad thing is, all they wanted to do was help.

It's a little clunky in places and perhaps not directed or edited with much 'finesse', but don't let that put you off. With chainsaws, wood chippers, sawmills and home made booby-traps (a la Southern Comfort), every redneck way to kick the bucket is depicted here in this film... but the difference between this and Deliverance is no one was ever meant to die.
