daily stream: the other cabin-in-the-woods movie

You could have gotten this streaming recommendation in your email in-box or in an app if you were a Substack subscriber (even for free!) or Patreon patron.

Shouldn’t everyone know by now that you stay away from creepy old castles and abandoned hospitals and, oh, ramshackle cabins in the wood? How come the people in horror movies act like they’ve never seen a horror movie? Well — heh heh — the people in Tucker and Dale vs Evil act very much like they know they’ve landed in a splatter flick… except they’re actually in a comedy. Tucker (the always funny Alan Tudyk) and Dale (Tyler Labine) are two very sweet guys fixing up their vacation home when they are beset by a gang of horny college students on a camping trip, and everyone gets wildly wrong ideas about everyone else. This is a sly little masterpiece of yucks and the yucky, one with a very welcome undercurrent of a warning not to make assumptions based on first appearances. (Read my 2011 review.)
