Beer and skittles!
Tucker and Dale vs Evil takes for granted that the audience know their scary movies and makes fun of the hillbilly horror subgenre in addition to the college student stereotype. A series of misunderstandings makes the college students presume that Tucker and Dale are evil, and, in return, they strike back. This premise probably sounds chaotic, but it will make sense.
This is a slasher flick without a serial killer. Tucker and Dale are the protagonists and whoever dies, here, dies by accident or by mistake. These deaths are are bunch of gory guilty pleasures. The body count is significant. The film has virtually no slow moments and little to no moralizing attempts. It’s a horror comedy that avoids the pitfalls of the genre.
As one of the “college kids” puts it, at some point in the plot, most conflicts in history could’ve been avoided with better communication. This pretty much sums up what goes on in Tucker and Dale vs Evil. It is hilarious, then, to see that no character learns from this quote. These characters are unredeemable. They’re clichés and they’re only here to meet their maker for our viewing pleasure.
