Amusing send-up of slasher hillbilly flicks

RELEASED IN 2010 and written & directed by Eli Craig, "Tucker & Dale vs. Evil" is a comedy/horror about genial West Virginian hillbillies Tucker & Dale (Alan Tudyk & Tyler Labine) who visit their newly acquired rundown cabin-in-the-woods wherein they are mistaken as psycho hilljack killers by a group of vacationing college youths.

This is a well-done lampoon of flicks like "Deliverance" (1972) "Wrong Turn" (2003) and "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" (1974). Besides being consistently amusing, what works best is that you get to know Tucker and, especially, Dale, as well as the main girl (Katrina Bowden), who's very reminiscent of Christine Taylor (from "The Brady Bunch Movie"), albeit taller. Freckled cutie Chelan Simmons looks her best clad in daisy dukes throughout. The coniferous woods give away that this was shot in the Great Northwest and not West Virginia, where the events purportedly take place.

THE MOVIE RUNS 1 hour & 29 minutes and was shot Alberta, Canada (e.g. Cochrane & Bottrel). ADDITIONAL WRITER: Morgan Jurgenson.

Why isn't Alan Tudyk a bigger star?

The central conceit - that the creepy hillbillies are actually the victims and the expendable college student the predators - is clever although it only carries the film so far. The true attraction here grows out of the interactions of the titular characters. Watching their friendly banter, their expression of feelings and the caring big brother / little brother dynamic makes for a compelling buddy comedy. The inclusion of, fortunately mostly cartoonish, gore does kind of reduce the warmth of the piece but it was necessary for the plot. While both Tucker and Dale benefit from excellent characterizations, Alan Tudyk shines in his role as a viewer surrogate much like the characters Kevin Costner and Tom Hanks played in their heydays. In short, there's a little too much slashy-slashy and stuff blowing up but ultimately the well-written and acted bromance elements are well worth watching

hilarious premise

A group of college friends are going camping in the woods when they encounter two creepy hillbillies. It's beer-loving, affable Dale (Tyler Labine) and Tucker (Alan Tudyk) going to fix up their newly bought vacation cabin. As the young people go night swimming, Allison (Katrina Bowden) hits her head and is rescued by Dale and Tucker. The other friends fear that she had been kidnapped.

The premise is a hilarious twist on the traditional hillbilly killer horror. Labine and Tudyk are a funny duo. The switch in point of view is inventive. The first half is near perfect. When Tucker gets taken, the premise breaks down a little. The miscommunication becomes not simply situational but rather willful ignorance. It takes it one small step closer to silly away from the smart writing. On a minor note, the opening should not give away part of the ending. It would be better setup if the college kids are horror fans watching a Texas Chainsaw adjacent movie. That would truly spoof the traditional horror narrative.
