Tucker and Dale vs. Evil Reviews

January 4, 2012
Here's something you don't see every day: a genial, politically correct splatter comedy.
October 6, 2011
Students of the Little Movie Glossary may find it funny how carefully "Tucker and Dale" works its way through upended cliches.

At its heart, it's really just a one-idea premise stretched out to feature length, but the lovable duo of Tudyk and Labine and an endearing layer of sweetness under all the blood make it a fully enjoyable comedy of (t)errors.

It's time we all toss our nine bucks into the proverbial woodchipper (don't ask me what proverb) and spit out enough money to make Tucker & Dale and other truly deserving, truly funny indie flicks a blazing success.

There's even a message under all the body parts: People are individuals, not just easy regional stereotypes.

Essentially a student film offering nothing but absurdly contrived coincidence.

September 30, 2011
We see a script and some underexposed actors who were lucky to find each other.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
September 30, 2011
Uses its reversal of the standard roles in rural horror to fantastic comedic effect.
Full Review | Original Score: 7.8/10
September 29, 2011
A droll sendup of the killer-in-the-swamp genre that gets funnier as it rolls along.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
September 29, 2011
Relying mostly on a single gimmick, the slasher comedy presents a high degree of difficulty for both the director and actors. Their earnest efforts keep the repetition from becoming ponderous.

It's fast, it's funny, and it works.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
September 29, 2011
A farce of misunderstanding first, body-count nightmare second and at nearly all times a refreshingly upending horror-comedy bromance.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Hillbillies of the world unite!

Tucker & Dale vs. Evil is a Canadian-made horror spoof that delivers both comedy and gross-out thrills.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
September 29, 2011
It's a sometimes-hilarious send-up of slasher movies that buries a surprising amount of sweetness under buckets of gore.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
September 29, 2011
Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil is too slick and too cute; Tudyk and Labine are terrific comic actors, but the movie might've been better served by less-recognizable faces.

Strikes an enjoyable tone of congenial gore.
September 27, 2011
It's neither particularly funny in its desperate rural dumbness, nor is it much of a genre piss-take.

... deft/daft mix of authentic feeling and sharp parody, belly laughs and visceral dread, makes Tucker & Dale vs. Evil a keeper...

"Evil" fails to triumph. Utterly.

Typical expectations are upended in the horror-comedy Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, Eli Craig's feature directorial debut and an endearingly cheeky tribute to suspense and slasher classics.

T&D offers good-natured, confidently executed splatstick whose frequent hilarity suffers only from peaking too early.
