The Horror/Comedy Tucker and Dale vs Evil seems to have been lurking in the backwoods for what seems like ages now, just waiting to be unleashed. Well, now the time has come, almost, for it to be released. August 26th will see its premiere on Magnolia On Demand with a limited theatrical release coming on September 30th. If the movie is half as fun as it appears to be I would say we are in for a good time. Magnolia are one of the distribution companies that really seem to be on the ball of late, so hopefully this will prove to be another winner. You can check out our assortment of tasty looking stills, as well as the trailers (which includes the Red Band version), below.
TUCKER & DALE VS EVIL is a hilariously gory, good-spirited horror comedy, doing for killer rednecks what Shaun of the Dead did for zombies. Tucker and Dale are two best friends on vacation at their dilapidated mountain house, who are mistaken for murderous backwoods hillbillies by a group of obnoxious, preppy college kids. When one of the students gets separated from her friends, the boys try to lend a hand, but as the misunderstanding grows, so does the body count. TUCKER AND DALE VS EVIL has been a hit on the festival circuit, debuting at Sundance, and winning the Midnight Audience Award at SXSW, the Jury Prize for First Feature at Fantasia, the Best Director award at Fantaspoa, and the Best Motion Picture Award at Sitges.
