The aim for these movie reviews are titles that are overlooked but damn worth watching, and for this weekend my suggestion for a movie to watch goes to “Tucker and Dale vs Evil (2010)”. This dark humor comedy, has an original way of twisting the point of view, and that is what it makes it so darn good. It starts as a typical horror movie until the plot starts to unwind. And don’t you worry folks, you won’t find a single spoiler in these recensions.
Tucker and Dale are 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…
