Tagline:  This Year Spring Break is Cut Short!

Plot: Two lovable West Virginian hillbillies, are headed to their "fixer-upper" vacation cabin to drink some beer, do some fishin', and have a good time. But when they run into a group of preppy college kids who assume from their looks that they must be in-bred, chainsaw wielding killers, Tucker & Dale's vacation takes a bloody & hilarious turn for the worse.

My rating: 8.5/10

Will I watch it again? YES!!!

Hysterical!  It doesn't take long before this ride gets going full force and once it does, it doesn't let go.  The dynamic created between these doomed kids and the hapless Tucker and Dale is wonderful.  I love how the slasher genre got turned on its head.  Not only is it gory as hell but there are some tremendous laughs.  The one that made me laugh so hard I cried was the bee attack and the chainsaw bit.  I had trouble breathing after that one.  This is one of the funniest horror comedies I've ever seen.  Don't miss this one.
