Dread Central’s Andrew Kasch reported in from the press junket for Tucker & Dale vs. Evil with some news regarding what we can expect on the upcoming DVD/Blu-ray release for the film along with a bit of a tease from writer/director Eli Craig as to what his next project might be.
First off, the home video release of Tucker & Dale vs. Evil from Magnolia (coming on November 29th) will include a lot of outtakes and a brand new 15-minute short film called “Tucker & Dale Are Evil”, which is essentially the events of the film told entirely from the point of view of the teenagers.
The hilarious horror-comedy feature 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.
Craig also elaborated on his next project, which he said is “something similar with the whole devil child genre. I’m doing a movie where I subvert The Exorcist, sort of The Omen meets Meet the Parents, where this unsuspecting guy gets married into a family, and his stepson is the AntiChrist and he has to try figure out what to do with that child.”
Look for more soon, and in the meantime Tucker & Dale vs. Evil will be available On Demand beginning August 26th and receive a limited theatrical release on September 30th.
