So it’s turned into a Day 4 tradition to focus on “vs. films.” In other words, when you need to create conflict, there’s nothing quite like (or as simple as) just taking two existing things and making them battle it out.
Well, Bailey sent me this. And I think it’s brilliant. It’s a film that takes the tired “backwoods brutality” formula and turns it on its head. I warn you: the trailer is very, very spoilery. Probably 60% of the film is given away. If you don’t want to watch it, just know this: Tucker and Dale are two nice hillbillies who get mistaken for mass murderers by a bunch of city teens who have come out for a camping trip. Hijinks ensue.
That being said: I’ve watched the trailer a few times and I still want to see the whole film. Probably twice. Plus: Firefly fans, Alan Tudyk is in it and Reaper fans, Tyler Labine is in it.
(Update: For some reason, the original trailer’s been taken down…and the new trailer gives away half the fun.)
