Stumbled across this comedic gem on netflix on Halloween night; and what a remarkable comedy this was. Tightly structured and hilarious jokes with fantastic acting. Really manages to hit all the right notes - check it out.
To cop a line from Leonard Maltin, TUCKER & DALE VS EVIL is one long, very funny joke. Making fun of conventions in the horror genre is old hat at this point, but TUCKER & DALE is on of the few films that takes it to new heights. Rednecks have always been fair game for the genre, but TUCKER & DALE gives the hillbillies their day by making the college kids with too much book larnin' the enemy. The result is hilarious.
What seems at first like a one-joke film being stretched out holds up surprisingly well throughout, due in large part to the fact that the filmmakers do such a good job of bringing Tucker and Dale to life and making them both likable and put-upon when dealing with their sudden infestation of college kids
Easily the funniest Meta-horror comedy since Shaun of the Dead! Clever as fuck, pretty cool origin story, and a heartfelt hillbilly romance that the whole family can enjoy! Also contains the best wood chipper death scene since Fargo. Yet another thing from Canada that I adore.
