Indie Trailer Sunday: Horror Comedy Tucker & Dale vs Evil!
The 2010 Sundance Film Festival kicks off in 19 more days and one of the films premiering at the festival in the Park City at Midnight category is the horror comedy Tucker & Dale vs Evil. Starring Alan Tudyk & Tyler Labine (seen above), this comedy twists the normal college-kids-go-camping-and-get-killed story in that the kids only think these two peaceful hillbillies are vicious killers (when they're really not). It doesn't necessarily sound like it will be great on paper, but watch this trailer and I guarantee you'll be dying to see this (pun intended). I'm definitely going to be catching this at its premiere at Sundance. Enjoy the trailer!
Watch the first unofficial trailer for Tucker & Dale vs Evil:
Two hillbillies vacation to their dilapidated mountain cabin, but their peaceful trip goes horribly awry.
Tucker & Dale vs Evil is both written and directed by Los Angeles-born filmmaker Eli Craig, of only the short film The Tao of Pon previously. The script was also co-written by up-and-comer Morgan Jurgenson, who last worked as an electrician on a film as well as an editor before moving to the screenwriter position. This will be premiering at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival in the Park City at Midnight category in a few weeks. Tucker & Dale vs Evil does not have a US distributor yet, but I'm sure it will find one at Sundance.
