Not enough publicity for such a great film!,

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.

This film has instant cult classic written all over it as the standard hillbilly survival horror is turned on its head. Two lovable bumpkins have to fight for their lives when a set of misguided teens think the well meaning duo are out to kill them in Texas Chainsaw / Deliverance style. You can't help but root for the hapless pair but also groan in enjoyable frustration as the teens start to drop dead in lots of extremely gory accidents. A total joy from start to finish.

Amusing send-up of slasher hillbilly flicks

RELEASED IN 2010 and written & directed by Eli Craig, "Tucker & Dale vs. Evil" is a comedy/horror about genial West Virginian hillbillies Tucker & Dale (Alan Tudyk & Tyler Labine) who visit their newly acquired rundown cabin-in-the-woods wherein they are mistaken as psycho hilljack killers by a group of vacationing college youths.

This is a well-done lampoon of flicks like "Deliverance" (1972) "Wrong Turn" (2003) and "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" (1974). Besides being consistently amusing, what works best is that you get to know Tucker and, especially, Dale, as well as the main girl (Katrina Bowden), who's very reminiscent of Christine Taylor (from "The Brady Bunch Movie"), albeit taller. Freckled cutie Chelan Simmons looks her best clad in daisy dukes throughout. The coniferous woods give away that this was shot in the Great Northwest and not West Virginia, where the events purportedly take place.

THE MOVIE RUNS 1 hour & 29 minutes and was shot Alberta, Canada (e.g. Cochrane & Bottrel). ADDITIONAL WRITER: Morgan Jurgenson.

GRADE: B

Why isn't Alan Tudyk a bigger star?

The central conceit - that the creepy hillbillies are actually the victims and the expendable college student the predators - is clever although it only carries the film so far. The true attraction here grows out of the interactions of the titular characters. Watching their friendly banter, their expression of feelings and the caring big brother / little brother dynamic makes for a compelling buddy comedy. The inclusion of, fortunately mostly cartoonish, gore does kind of reduce the warmth of the piece but it was necessary for the plot. While both Tucker and Dale benefit from excellent characterizations, Alan Tudyk shines in his role as a viewer surrogate much like the characters Kevin Costner and Tom Hanks played in their heydays. In short, there's a little too much slashy-slashy and stuff blowing up but ultimately the well-written and acted bromance elements are well worth watching
