A horror comedy film written and directed by Eli Craig (Sally Field’s younger son), doing for killer rednecks what Shaun of the Dead did for zombies. It stars Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine as Tucker and Dale, 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. The film 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.
