“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“.
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.

Tucker and Dale vs Evil is conscious of what it…
