Movie Info

Tucker & Dale vs Evil is a hilariously gory, good-spirited horror comedy, doing for killer rednecks what Shaun of the Dead did for zombies. Tucker and Dale are two best friends on vacation at their dilapidated mountain house, who are mistaken for murderous backwoods hillbillies by a group of obnoxious, preppy college kids. When one of the students gets separated from her friends, the boys try to lend a hand, but as the misunderstanding grows, so does the body count. Tucker & Dale vs Evil has been a hit on the festival circuit, debuting at Sundance, and winning the Midnight Audience Award at SXSW, the Jury Prize for First Feature at Fantasia, the Best Director award at Fantaspoa, and the Best Motion Picture Award at Sitges. -- (C) Official Site

  • In the end this was a very surprising film that was lots of fun. Had a nice bit of gore. And a ton of heart.

  • Wicked, wild, funny and fun. Tucker & Dale vs Evil is a perfect blend of comedy, heart and horror. Eli Craig, where's my sequel?

  • Most importantly, though, it's a highly entertaining and fun little film where you might hiccup with laughter, feel your heart warming, and your stomach turning, all at the same time.

  • Tucker and Dale is a surprisingly sweet movie, even when kids are chucking themselves into wood chippers or getting accidentally impaled on conveniently located sharp sticks.

    February 27, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Tucker and Dale vs. Evil is worth seeing for its performances, for its consistent ability to produce deaths that can be seen in several entirely different ways and for its droll commentary on horror movies that rely on unmotivated aggression.

    February 8, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • [Tucker and Dale vs. Evil] is certainly part of the newly invigorated genre of horror-comedy -- and it's almost as good as Shaun of the Dead, though it can't top the recent alien invasion comedy Attack the Block.

    OMG. Funny. Really funny. Great Halloween movie.

    It is super nice to see how instead of being a one-joke movie stretched for two hours it manages to find new ways to surprise us and make fun of slashers clichés without seeming stupid or missing what makes it so funny - and it is very funny, with the bonus of also having a heart.

    Loopy twist on the usual "inbred drooling rednecks in the woods" horror go-to wherein the horny college kids jump scare react to that expectation when in fact the absolute opposite is true. Kinda fun.

    I'm usually not into slashers or horror comedies, but this one was pretty decent, with some genuinely funny moments and good kill gags.
