If you haven’t seen Tucker & Dale vs. Evil yet, you’re missing out on an extremely entertaining horror-comedy with plenty of big laughs and all the ooey-gooey carnage you’d expect from a slasher flick (watch the trailer here). The indie movie never really had a chance to shine for worldwide audiences on the biggest stage, but enjoys a faithful cult following thanks to home video, streaming services like Netflix (where you can still watch it right now; go on then!), and on demand.
It’s been four years now since the movie was first released, and while fans have surely asked about a sequel, not much has come of it. Not until now. At a recent horror convention, stars Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine were talking about the movie when they announced that producers want to make Tucker & Dale vs. Evil 2.
You can watch a video of the pair making the announcement below.
A new poster has been created for the indie horror–comedy, Tucker & Dale vs. Evil. The poster comes from comic book artist Tony Moore, who’s worked on everything from Punisher, Ghost Rider, and Venom, as well as The Walking Dead, which has nabbed him two Eisner Award nominations.
The movie tells the story of Tucker and Dale (Firefly‘s Alan Tudyk and Reaper‘s Tyler Labine), two hillbillies who are on vacation at their secluded mountain house in the middle of the woods. When a group of preppy college kids come to their area as for a getaway, they automatically assume Tucker and Dale are dangerous serial killer types. But when one of their friends has an accident and Tucker and Dale try and help, the kids’ assumptions of their murderous intent only grows, which only leads to messy consequences.

A new poster has been released for the indie horror–comedy Tucker & Dale vs. Evil. The movie stars Alan Tudyk (Firefly, Transformers: Dark of the Moon) and Tyler Labine (Reaper, Rise of the Planet of the Apes) as a couple of hillbillies who are mistaken for serial killers by a bunch of college kids who have seen far too many horror movies.
As you could see in the trailer, the movie is right along the same lines as other popular horror–comedies such as Shaun of the Dead, Slither, and Zombieland. It arrives in select theaters on September 30, 2011, but will also be available on video on demand services starting August 26. The two stars and director Eli Craig will also be making an appearance at this year’s San Diego Comic–Con convention.

We the Geeks of Doom are all about the upcoming horror comedy Tucker & Dale vs. Evil. As we’ve said before, the movie has Alan Tudyk, who was beloved as Wash on Joss Whedon’s Firefly and Serenity. It also has Tyler Labine, who was fantastic on TV’s Reaper and also had an amusing cameo in Kevin Smith’s Zack and Miri Make a Porno.
Head on over to the other side to read the synopsis and watch the clips, but I must stress: if you haven’t seen the trailer yet, you should watch that first. The new clips play better after seeing teases of the scenes in the trailer.
