Mindless fun. That is the best way I know to summarize the you-need-to-see-it film Tucker & Dale Vs Evil.

I don't like promoting Netflix, since I'm annoyed at the increased prices and severely diminished film library, but it is available to watch instantly so go do it! Oh, if you don't want to take my word on it, just watch the trailer and decided for yourself AND/OR read the great reviews on Rotten Tomotoes! Happy watching!!!
