52 Movies: Week 13
Tucker and Dale vs Evil is the most good-natured horror movie I’ve ever seen.
Starring Tyler Labine and Alan Tudyk, Tucker and Dale vs Evil is a comedy horror movie that turns the teen slasher genre on it’s head. Tucker and Dale are two lower-income friends from Appalachia, which is a nice way of saying they are hillbillies. ‘Super nice hillbillies but a little socially awkward. On their way up to Tucker’s new cabin on the lake, Tucker and Dale run into a group of college kids heading to the lake for a weekend of partying and the stage is set for a series of deadly misunderstandings.
Tucker and Dale vs Evil is wickedly funny, if a bit obvious at times. It’s not exactly a masterpiece but, it’s a hard movie not to like. I give it three and a half stars out of five.
