Tucker & Dale vs. Evil (2010)

I don’t pretend to know everything about the movie industry, but there is no reason an awesome horror comedy film such as T&DvE (as I’m forever abbreviating it) should be shelved for two months, let alone two freaking years.  Apparently it was filmed in the area around my hometown of Calgary (other noteworthy movies filmed thereabouts are Unforgiven, Brokeback Mountain and The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford), which means I missed out on… well nothing, I’m kind of a homebody so it’s not like I would have gone out and stalked Alan Tudyk or anything.

Anyways, the movie centres around Tucker (Tudyk) and Dale (Tyler Labine), two sorta hillbilly types that a pack of college kids judge to be creepy freaks.  A misunderstanding happens, and when T & D save the life of Allison (Katrina Bowden), the idiot college kids mistakenly believe that T & D have abducted Allison.  AND THEN CRAZY THINGS START HAPPENING.

It’s a very sitcom-y, misunderstanding leading to hilarity high concept movie, but you couldn’t have asked for two finer actors than Tudyk and Labine to pull it off.  It is wonderful, and I’m not a gory horror fan, but there’s plenty of that too.  You know what I’d like?  A movie starring Tudyk, Paul Rudd and Nathan Fillion, probably produced by Judd Apatow and maybe have Isla Fisher or Amy Adams or both of them in it.  Call it Conquest of the Reds or something and just let them play it out.  I don’t even have a script idea yet, but call me!
