Tucker & Dale VS. Evil has had a long path to get to horror fans. Premiering at Sundance in January of 2010, it took over a year for a studio to pick it up for distribution in the States. Luckily, Magnet Releasing picked it up and have already released it on Video On Demand and in select theatres. Now, those hillbillies are coming home next month. Crack open a PBR and undo a button on your coveralls and sit down while we give you the gravy on this hilariously diabolical film.
