Call it a comedy of errors with a body count...

Beats a dead horse all the way to the glue factory.

If you've seen your share of teenagers getting sliced and diced out in the boondocks, chances are you'll be tickled pink by this tale of a couple of good-natured bumpkins who are mistaken for serial murderers.

Although attitude is more important than plot in spoofs like this, Tucker & Dale's storyline does have the right sort of momentum.

Everyone seems to be having a jolly good time, though I'm still not sure what they're satirizing.

Tucker and Dale vs Evil is deliciously fun satire -- and, once all the blood has been spilt, offers an interesting riff on the line between hero and horror villain.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

There is nothing very deep about this movie, but it is surprisingly funny for a slasher film.

... a far-fetched but bloody fun film that doesn't talk down to its target audience so much as it celebrates fans of the genre.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4.0

It's easily one of the most heartfelt and genuinely entertaining horror comedies of the past few years, and even if you're not a horror fan, there's still plenty of fun to be had with these two lovable hillbillies.

Here's something you don't see every day: a genial, politically correct splatter comedy.

I doubt that anyone who isn't well familiar with slasher movie tropes will completely understand all the jokes... but they should at least get a couple laughs out of it.

By the time the action-packed, thoroughly tedious climax rolls around, Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil has established itself as a missed opportunity of disappointingly epic proportions...

Silly one-joke spoof horror/comedy about rednecks and college students together in the woods.

This goofy, over-the-top tale of college students on a camping trip warring with two local West Virginia hillbillies lacks a core identity.
Full Review | Original Score: 49/100

Oh, dear. Oh, my. Oh, goody. This is one of the funniest things I have ever seen, a clever, witty, surprising splatter comedy to rank with Evil Dead II and Shaun of the Dead...

Beginning psychologists take note - hillbillies and college kids may kill each other, but the greatest assets in maintaining the peace, on both sides, are hot coeds.

Film fans who believe there's no way they could ever cheer for rednecks (a lifetime of Deliverance and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre will do that to a person) will sheepishly smirk as they find themselves rooting for the rubes holding center stage here.

Genuinely brilliant.

Clever horror/comedy hybrid of the kind that Sam Raimi used to make and that so many have tried to produce in recent years but have fallen remarkably flat. There's nothing flat about this clever genre flick. For the right audience, it's pretty great.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.0/5.0

Just about as rip-roarin' a horror comedy as we've seen in a while.
