Tucker & Dale vs. Evil

de Eli Craig


Prejudices are going to play a dirty trick on Tucker and Dale, a couple of good-natured, beer-drinking country boys. If first impressions are the ones that count, approaching a group of young people with a scythe in hand and dressed like extras from Deliverance immediately makes them Ed Gein imitators. A mistake that makes them the target of a group of hikers and that provokes a whole carousel of hilarious incidents, each bloodier than the next. A gratifying comedy of errors and terrors, Eli Craig´s first film puts a twist on the genre´s conventions and is more than likely to become a cult film.
