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.
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.
Don’t let the relatively low budget of the production lead you to think you’re not getting good value from a Blu-ray upgrade, mind. In terms of picture quality in particular, you get a really sharp transfer here, and the audio mix is no slouch either. Given that most people never got to enjoy the film in cinemas, it seems right to make the most of it in the home.
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

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.
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.
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.
The advantage this excellent film has over most horror comedies is that it's actually very funny. Gleefully flipping the coin to show survival horror from the 'hillbillies' point of view, with the amiable Tucker and Dale desperately trying to reason with the immensely dumb teen campers led by budding psycho Chad(Jesse Moss). Of course everything they do to try to cool down the situation goes wrong, especially during a hilarious therapy session organised by Dale's object of affection Allison(Katrina Bowden).
I think what I really like about this film is that Tucker and Dale are really likeable, three dimensional characters. Both Tudyk and Labine are perfect in their parts, and there is great support from Bowden and Moss. Despite all the severed limbs and bloody stumps, a human heart beats within Tucker And Dale Vs Evil, a heart that shows itself during the touching scenes of budding romance between Dale and Allison.
Full marks to the director Eli Craig in making this genuinely funny film, and although I'm not a big fan of sequels in general, I hope that that Tucker and Dale will appear again in the near future.
The usual extras appear on this release, including a 'making of' featurette, photo gallery and trailer. 5 out of 5.

I love this movie, one of my all time favourites, little bit of fishing, restore a cabin, what could go wrong :DPublished 19 days ago by Allan
Great film. Very funny. Uses most of the horror cliches I thought except one. Until I saw where the final scene took place.
Well worth a watch.
