Tucker & Dale vs. Evil has been making the festival rounds since last January’s Sundance Film Festival, but it wasn’t until last week that the film finally got a rather limited U.S. theatrical release. Starring Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine, Eli Craig‘s comedy turns the hillbilly horror subgenre on its head by telling the story from the rednecks’ perspective. Tucker (Tudyk) and Dale (Labine) are just two well-meaning pals trying to enjoy a quiet fishing weekend in their admittedly run-down cottage. But when a group of obnoxious college kids arrive in their neck of the woods, one deadly misunderstanding leads to another.
It seems like enough gore and (hilarious) tragedy to last poor Tucker and Dale a lifetime, but Craig has other ideas. After the jump, read Craig’s thoughts on a potential sequel for the beleaguered backwoods buddies.
