Tucker & Dale vs. Evil

"Evil just messed with the wrong hillbillies."

“Tucker & Dale vs Evil” is a comedic take on the horror movie genre. It follows two dimwitted buddies, Tucker and Dale, who are travelling to a new vacation lake house. During the film Tucker and Dale are continuously mistaken for maniacal serial killers. Tucker and Dale first encounter a group of college students who are travelling to the same lake to go camping. The group of youngsters is led by Chad, a preppy egomaniac. The rest of the group includes Allison, Chloe, Naomi, Todd, Mitch, Chuck, Jason and Mike. While stopping for gas, they see Tucker and Dale. Tucker encourages Dale to talk to the girls and flirt with them. Dale is insecure and behaves strangely; scaring the girls.

When they arrive at the campsite, Chad tells a story about a pair of crazy killers who roam the lakeside. Chad tries to make a romantic move on Allison but is rebuffed. Allison goes off on her own when the group goes skinny dipping. At the same time Tucker and Dale also are at the lake doing some night fishing. They witness Allison getting ready to dive into the water and startle her causing her to hit a rock. Dale goes into the water to rescue her and when Allison’s friends see Dale pulling her from the water they think that he is harming her.

Allison has a head injury and wakes up at Tucker and Dale’s cabin. She is initially confused but realizes that the two had cared for her and saved her from drowning. Her group of friends track down the cabin and think that she is being kept hostage and stage several botched rescue attempts. One by one, her friends fall by the wayside, victims of bizarre coincidental accidents. After this, only Chad remains amongst Allison’s friends.

It becomes clear that Chad is not mentally stable. He attempts to kidnap Allison and only the bumbling duo of Tucker and Dale can save her.
