Two hillbillies are mistaken for crazed killers by a bunch of college kids.
A horror comedy spoof, it sounds like a fun watch, but pretty much from the start I knew it wasn’t going to be my cup of Tea. Still, I hoped it’d get better!
My hope was unfounded.
I found it too cliche even for a parody of the slasher genre, and I didn’t find it funny at all. And the film dragged! I felt like it was never going to end! I noticed a few mistakes too. Went in the lake, go out and are bone dry, yeah….
The college kids irritated the hell out of me by how annoyingly cliche they were. I suspect that was point, but it worked a little too well.
I felt as if I could have liked Tucker and Dale, but the whole thing was too cliche and unfunny. I didn’t like anyone else.
To sum up, Cliche, Dull, Unoriginal.
Was it worth the watch? No, I’ve seen better horror comedies
Would I re-watch? No
