Starring Tyler Labine, Alan Tudyk, and Katrina Bowden
Directed by Eli Craig

Although the film falters a bit in the final act, this was a more than enjoyable diversion with winning performances from the two leads. Tyler Labine, in particular, was actually rather charming as the shy Dale and absolutely helped raise the bar in terms of the quality on display in the flick. In fact, considering that Tucker and Dale vs. Evil is a send-up of slasher movies, all the acting is much better than I ever could have expected. Laughs abound (who knew impalements could actually invoke laughter?) and the gore level is more than adequate although never grotesque.
The RyMickey Rating: B
