Out this week on Blu-ray and DVD is the hilarious splatter comedy Tucker & Dale vs. Evil (Magnolia) If ever a movie deserved cult-hit status it's this rollicking, gruesome, horror tale from director Eli Craig. Good 'ol boys Dale (Tyler Labine) and buddy Tucker (Alan Tudyk) have inherited a dilapidated cabin in the woods and are thrilled (even though it looks right out of Evil Dead). Nearby are some partying, privileged preppy students who take one look at them and assume they're deranged hillbillies straight out of Deliverance. When one of the girls dives into the lake and hits her head, Tucker and Dale thoughtfully rescue her but the students mistakenly think she has been abducted by the duo and plan an attack on the cabin. This unfortunately results in people slipping into wood chippers and impaling themselves on wooden stakes, all a result of their own stupidity, and the two leads get more lovable as the carnage ramps up. Ultimately, however, this is a comedy about misinterpretation and misunderstanding. With lots of blood.
