Tucker & Dale vs. Evil
So, we've established that it's funny. As for the rest of the movie, I would say it is fun but not great. The slasher effects are decent but nothing to write home about. But that may be because there's not much you can do to push the envelope with blood and gore anymore. Visually, it is well shot. It's all out in the woods on location and done with a hazy feel that hearkens back to decent slasher movies. As far as the story goes, I got a little disappointed as it progressed. Rather than staying true to its original premise, this movie reverts back to the traditional slasher genre with a crazy guy.
I'm kind of conflicted on this one. On the one hand, I wish it had followed its original premise all the way through. But, on the other hand, there's only so far you can take that before it gets boring. All in all, if you don't mind a little gore, I'd say see it. It's just unique enough to hold your interest and definitely funny enough to keep you entertained.
