I have a very narrow window for what I consider horror. I think I’ve touched on this before. In my narrow window, I don’t list comedies, anything that is just gorey, shit for shock value and plenty more. When I sit down to anything horror, I’m looking to be entertained just like everyone else, but I want to be scared. However, that isn’t always how horror works and it is something that I need to let go of. Rarely am I scared anymore. Let’s face it, I’ve watched a lot of horror movies, but I often come out of the experience entertained, even fascinated by the experience. Just because I’m not scared doesn’t make it any less of a good movie or even a wonderful horror film.
Now, that being said, I laughed my ass off during Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil. Not only am I a big fan of Alan Tyduk, who plays Tucker (they are going to his ‘vacation home’), but this was an amazing movie on so many levels and it did what I do on a daily bases. It pokes fun at so many horror movies and stories. It is literally chopped full of “WTF” moments, but in a good way. The acting was amazing, script was spot on, everything was just perfect.
This is a movie I am definitely watching again and making Xander watch it. It’s not Cabin in the Woods, but Maker is it close. You must see this movie.
I’d own a cabin in some creepy woods, wouldn’t you?
