SDCC 2011: Interview With Tucker And Dale vs. Evil Director Eli Craig

Posted by Perri Nemiroff On August - 29 - 2011 0 Comment

Hillbillies have a bad rap, largely due to the film industry. How many times have we seen a group of unsuspecting college students drive out to the middle of nowhere, have their car break down and ask a local for help, only to meet their demise? Well, writer-director Eli Craig is here to shake that stereotype up a bit with his new film Tucker & Dale vs Evil.

Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine star as Tucker and Dale, respectively. The duo opts to head out into the woods to spend some time at their new vacation cabin and fix the place up a bit. One thing leads to another, and a nearby group of vacationers, a band of wild college kids, suspect the hillbillies abducted one of their own, Katrina Bowden’s Alison. Sure, everything is just one big misunderstanding, but neither faction catches on and the two go to blows and a deadly rampage actually does ensue.

With the film’s September 30th release date just about two months away, Craig hit San Diego Comic Con to spread the word. That word? It’s the college kids you’ve got to watch out for, not the hillbillies. Check out everything Craig had to say about the production from drawing the line between his directorial and writing duties, working with his riotously hilarious cast and much more in the video interview below.
