Review: Tucker and Dale vs Evil (2010)

Tucker & Dale vs. Evil“. Damn, that was unexpected. I somehow totally missed this movie, so thanks to Zoë. It’s neither sci-fi nor horror (at least, not in its traditional form) so I won’t write a full review, but it is a hilarious, witty and original horror comedy, well written and acted. Highly recommended for any fan of my all-time favourite “Cabin in the Woods” or “Shaun of the Dead“.

P. S. By the way… “Tucker & Dale vs. Evil” stars Alan Tudyk of “Firefly” and “Serenity“.

My persional recommendation of a good comedy horror would be an Italian film ”Della Morte, Dell’Amore”. It’s extremely weird, pretty trashy, full of wry humour and… very funny too.

Ultimately I was roped into this by my now-husband, and I was pleased I was. What I thought this movie was and what it turned out to be? Two totally different things. Horror comedy. Why didn’t someone just open with that? You know I would have been all over that!

Tucker and Dale vs Evil is conscious of what it…

  1. Alan Tudyk is such an underrated actor in my opinion, he has played so many different parts, and can pretty much take on any role. He was also very good in Dollhouse. Don;t know if you ever saw that series, but it’s really worth the watch 😀
