Tucker and Dale vs. Evil

Director: Eli Craig, Morgan Jurgenson

Starring: Tyler Labine, Alan Tudyk, Katrina Bowden, Jesse Moss, Philip Granger

A horror movie with a difference. Tucker (Alan Tudyk) and Dale (Tyler Labine) are two country bumpkins who decide to renovate an old holiday cottage in the hills. There they run into a bunch of vacationing teenagers but all attempts to make friends is hampered because the kids are scared off by Dale's nervous demeanor and his unfortunate choice of a sickle as a fashion accessory. When Allison (Katrina Bowden) falls into the lake where Tucker and Dale are fishing, the duo nobly rescue her but her friends wrongly assume foul deeds are afoot. The situation escalates and a series of grisly murders follows but are the two bumpkins to blame. Well you need to see the movie to discover all. All the normal conventions of the horror genre are here in this entertaining tongue in cheek comedy.
