Who Are the Right Hillbillies to Mess With?


On its cover, Tucker & Dale vs. Evil boasts the tagline "Evil just messed with the wrong hillbillies." This statement makes us wonder: Who are the right hillbillies to mess with? The Beverly Hillbillies have enough money to sue you into the stone age. The folks of Deliverance will do horrible things to you and make you squeal like a pig. The cannibalistic hillbillies of the Wrong Turn franchise will chop you to pieces as you and your hapless teenage friends run screaming through the woods. Hell even Sergeant York, though a stand-up guy, is a crack shot and shouldn't be messed with lightly. Though stereotypically stupid, hillbillies actually have a rich history of kicking people's asses when the time comes.

Tucker & Dale vs. Evil continues that tradition, but this time the hillbillies are fighting off...well, misunderstanding and preppy kids. But it's so much easier to call it evil, and it's so much easier to win a copy from us than to go buy one. So let's do that.

Tucker and Dale are two best friends on vacation who are mistaken for murderous backwoods hillbillies by a group of preppy college kids. When one of the kids gets separated from her friends, Tucker and Dale try to lend a hand, but as the misunderstanding grows, so does the body count.
