At long last, it seems as though we're going to get a gander at the well-received horror comedy TUCKER & DALE VS EVIL (read our review from last year's Sundance right HERE). The good news comes courtesy of a press release issued by Magnolia Pictures' genre arm Magnet Releasing, which just acquired US rights to the Eli Craig-directed film. Alan Tudyk (SERENITY), Tyler Labine ("Reaper") and Katrina Bowden ("30 Rock") star in the flick.

 

Tucker and Dale are two best friends on vacation at their dilapidated Appalachian mountain cabin, who are mistaken for murderous backwoods hillbillies by a group of obnoxious, preppy college kids. When one of the students gets separated from her friends, the boys try to lend a hand, but as the misunderstanding grows, so does the body count. TUCKER & DALE VS EVIL has been a hit on the festival circuit, debuting at Sundance, and winning the Midnight Audience Award at SXSW, the Jury Prize for First Feature at Fantasia, the Best Director award at Fantaspoa, and the Best Motion Picture Award at Sitges.

Magnet plans to release TUCKER & DALE VS EVIL in its Ultra VOD program, debuting the films on all VOD platforms nationwide on AUGUST 26th, prior to a theatrical release on SEPTEMBER 30th. Visit its Official Site here and FB Page here.

This is awesome news, and once again Magnolia/Magnet proves that it's one of the most genre-friendly distributors in the business today.
