Dale and Tucker are a couple of well meaning, likable rednecks. Wherever the pair goes, chaos ensues. When Tucker sinks all of his money in to a vacation home, he and Dale think they’ve got it made. But, their dreams of a quiet haven in the woods are short lived. They come across a group of freewheeling college kids and then the real chaos begins.
Tucker & Dale vs. Evil succeeds at being, both funny and horrific. Not since Shaun of the Dead have I seen a film execute, this flawlessly, at comedic horror. Tucker & Dale draws some inspiration from the horror films of the late 70s and early 80s but brings its own unique perspective. The cast does a great job of portraying horror film stereotypes with enough personality to make the characters three dimensional. The script is brilliant and chock full of some of the most quotable lines I’ve heard in years. The gore effects are ultra bloody and very well done.
I wouldn’t change a thing about this movie. It’s as close to perfect as I’ve seen in some time. I recommend Tucker & Dale vs. Evil to any genre fan as well as anyone interested in watching something that’s a welcome change from the prefabricated crap that we’ve all become so familiar with. Tucker & Dale is currently available via Netflix’s instant platform, so check it out!
