Two passionate pop-cultural demographics will be doing backflips after viewing the trailer for Tucker and Dale vs. Evil. Fans of geek-TV will be ecstatic that Firefly‘s Alan Tudyk and Reaper‘s Tyler Labine will join forces for this gruesome comedy, and admirers of Edgar Wright’s Shaun of the Dead will be literally foaming at the mouth, since it turns a similarly beloved horror genre — murderous hillbillies in the woods — on its head.
Loved Labine’s scythe. The film premieres late this month at Sundance, and I’m officially on board. (And yes, that is Cerie (Katrina Bowden) from 30 Rock playing the ditch-digging college girl).
