This movie is certifiably insane, that's a given, but it's also extremely witty, has far more intelligence than you might originally expect and has a grand time exploding clichés and playing with an audience's expectations.

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

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.

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.

This is one of those rare genre comedies that near-perfectly balances its blend of grue, guffaws, and gag reflexes.

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.

We see a script and some underexposed actors who were lucky to find each other.

Uses its reversal of the standard roles in rural horror to fantastic comedic effect.

A droll sendup of the killer-in-the-swamp genre that gets funnier as it rolls along.

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.

A farce of misunderstanding first, body-count nightmare second and at nearly all times a refreshingly upending horror-comedy bromance.

Hillbillies of the world unite!

If you're seeing this as the midnight movie it's destined to best be experienced as, you could safely drift off after the 45-minute mark...

Tucker & Dale vs. Evil is a Canadian-made horror spoof that delivers both comedy and gross-out thrills.

What I responded to was the cleverness of the parody, which far exceeds a one-joke idea, its expert execution (especially for a first-time feature-film director) and the wonderful performances of its two leading actors, Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine.

It's a sometimes-hilarious send-up of slasher movies that buries a surprising amount of sweetness under buckets of gore.
