Tucker & Dale vs. Evil (Blu-ray)

  • Summary: Normally when you hear that a release was delayed it spells trouble, but Tucker and Dale vs. Evil is brilliantly hysterical, and it only gets funnier on repeat viewings. I have no idea why the studio sat on this. Fair warning: just as the theme of the movie is not to judge a book by its cover, don’t judge this Blu-ray by the insipid and incredibly stupid cover Magnet slapped on the cover of the disc.

Tucker & Dale vs. Evil Blu-ray Review

  • Excerpt: The Film "He's pretty heavy for half a guy." We're all pretty familiar with the horror genre at this point. About 99 percent of the time, these films involve plenty of gore, a little something pointy, and a smorgasboard of good-looking victims. Tucker & Dale vs. Evil cherry-picks some of those golden oldies and creates a very unique twist on the tale of the hillbillies from Hell.

  • Summary: Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil turned out to be a Hell of a lot more fun than it probably should have been. Craig’s film manages to give us likeable characters, a unique and entertaining story, and a good mix of both laughs and gross out gore scenes which all add up to a horror comedy that actually works. Magnolia’s Blu-ray looks and sounds great and it’s got some cool extras too. This one is absolutely worth seeking out.

  • Conclusion: Tucker & Dale vs. Evil was actually completed in 2009, but for some reason it got held up and only got released in select theaters this year. Original and entertaining, it definitely deserves wider exposure, and I hope it finds an appreciative audience on home video. If you're into horror or, more specifically, horror comedies that poke fun at the usual fright film conventions, you should definitely check this one out.

  • Conclusion: Again, it's just such a shame that 'Tucker and Dale' wasn't able to get out to a wider audience. It played tons of festivals, but never got the wide release it deserved. Don't miss it now that it's out on home video. This is one of the funniest horror comedies out there. The video and audio are perfect companions. The special features, besides the commentary, seem very EPK-ish but that's okay since you're getting a great movie. 'Tucker and Dale' is highly recommended.

REVIEW: Clever Horror Premise Fails Tucker & Dale vs Evil Halfway Through

movieline
25 October 2011
  • Excerpt: While it's not quite enough to fuel a whole feature, the premise of Tucker & Dale vs Evil is a slice of meta-genre brilliance: What if the creepy, forbidding locals who always glare so unwelcomingly at slasher movie protagonists on their way to their haunted mansions and creepy cabins in the woods were actually just misunderstood?

  • Excerpt: What’s so scary about a stereotypical hillbilly? Is it the penchant for wearing flannel? The ridiculous teeth? The cousin-lovin’? The banjos? None of it seems terrifying on paper, but an entire horror subgenre and classic films like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Deliverance have been formed around these ridiculous characters.

  • Excerpt: What if The Texas Chain Saw Massacre was from Leatherface’s point of view? And what if he and his family weren’t murderous cannibals, but were just terribly, terribly unlucky? That’s the premise of the horror-comedy Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil , co-written by director Eli Craig and producer Morgan Jurgenson, and starring Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine as two good-hearted rednecks who accidentally torment a group of dumb, boozed-up college kids out camping in the woods.
