    This was a great concept for a film but in the end, it didn't live up to the expectations that the beginning set up for me. Lots of half-hearted laughs on my part (I can't help but compare it to the constant laughing out loud during Cabin in the Woods).

    "I should have known if a guy like me talked to a girl like you, somebody would end up dead."

    Great horror comedy is even better on a second viewing. Also checked out the commentary which is also quite funny and has the director and the the leads discussing the difficulties (and pointing out some continuity errors which I never would have noticed) of making this film.

    A neat spin on the horror comedy with our misunderstood heroes Tucker and Dale get mistaken for two psycho hillbillies by a group of teens....

    An absolutely hilarious horror comedy that never shies away from the blood or the gore.

    Pure happenstance leads to a group of attractive "college kids" convinced that they are being picked off one by one by 2 maniacal backwoods hillbillies. The reality is that Tucker and Dale, albeit dimwitted, are 2 kindhearted guys trying to enjoy their vacation from their backwoods cabin. Written and Directed by Eli Craig, Tucker and Dale vs Evil is an interesting parody of your typical run of the mill backwoods slasher film. The film is cleverly executed and features it's…

    A fun, excellent example of how to take a common trope and flip it on its head. Fun characters help drive this splatter comedy, but the real draw here is the series of unfortunate misunderstandings which lead to the gore. The movie parodies other horror films, setting up scenes reminiscent of classic horror, although these feel a bit more like a sideshow--the movie would stand just fine with the bare minimum referential set-up. Luckily, these references make sense within the…

    Parte 13 de Hoop-tober

    Coge todos los tópicos del Slasher y dales la vuelta, y te sale una comedia divertidísima. Geniales los flashbacks a los 80 y la muertes absurdas. Para mi decae un poco en el último tercio (aunque el chiste de los dedos es genial) pero la verdad es que a estas alturas te has reído tanto que se lo perdonas.

    La peli gana mucho si no te la chafas con el tráiler.

    Film 20 of #31DaysofHorror

    The film that taught us the true meaning of 'Never judge a book by its cover' is so dumb, and so much fun, I even watch it at Christmas. A great paring of Tyler Labine and Alan Tudyk carry the film for its brief runtime, giving the audience plenty of laughs (and a few scares) along the way. Plenty of the clichéness that usually bogs down horror films but here, director Eli Craig uses them to satirical good use. A funny, un-apologetic horror/comedy that will have you laughing and cringing in equal measure.

    Now, where's the sequel dammit?

    What a fun movie, a perfect mix of humor and all out violent insanity. Tyler Labine and Alan Tudyk are so insanely good in this. Bring on a sequel.

    A clever and comical jab at the tired and clichéd camping-redneck-horror theme.

    Though it does manage to render a few laughs throughout it's brisk 90-minute run time, Tucker & Dale vs Evil comes off, overall, as only moderately interesting, with a mildly fresh concept that could've executed with way more passion. The idea's are there, but the majority of the jokes, interesting characters/story, and general intellect are sadly lackluster in what could've been a very intriguing and refreshing comedy.

    Overall impression: Meh.
