This weekend needless remakes of Conan the Barbarian and Fright Night are struggling to attract an audience. Meanwhile, a crowd-pleasing original movie like Tucker & Dale vs. Evil has endured a long, arduous journey just to secure any release at all.
That journey ends on November 29th when Magnolia releases Tucker & Dale vs. Evil to DVD and Blu-ray. Details are preliminary so no further info as to what extras will be included on the discs is available at the moment.
Eli Craig’s hilarious horror-comedy centers on two redneck buddies, played by “Firefly”’s Alan Tudyk and “Reaper”’s Tyler Rabine, who, thanks to a series of misunderstandings and unfortunate events, are mistaken for psychopathic hillbillies by a group of judgmental college brats, who themselves turn homicidal, after the duo’s rescue of one of their friends, “30 Rock”’s Katrina Bowden, gets misconstrued as a backwoods abduction.
For those of you that cannot wait until after Thanksgiving, Tucker & Dale vs. Evil will be available On Demand beginning August 26th and receive a limited theatrical release on September 30th. Kind of a shame that this isn’t getting the wide theatrical release it so richly deserves.
We’ll bring you more details on the November 29th DVD/Blu-ray release specs when they become available.
