Blu Ray Tuesday #8

The movie:

The menu: Pizza. Apart from Boy Roomie who wasn’t feeling well. So he ate an entire bowl of popcorn instead. That smelled amazing. I'm still jealous

I read that this is a horror/comedy but I wouldn’t really describe it as such. It’s definitely a comedy, not so much horror. It’s certainly gruesome but all the blood, death and gore are played for laughs… and it’s very, very funny! We all laughed the entire way through.

A group of teens are headed out to the woods for a camping trip during college break. They run into two hillbillies at a gas station who look and act like every creepy scary redneck from every teen horror movie ever. The action swaps from following the teens to following the rednecks, who it turns out are just two best friends who are heading to the woods themselves to start doing up their newly purchased ‘vacation home’, a small shack.

When one of the girls falls and hurts herself, the two ‘heroes’ swoop in and save her. Unbeknownst to them, the college kids think that the rednecks have kidnapped their friend and plot to get her back. And then calamity and hilarity ensue.

Recommended? Ok, why not? It’s silly, gory fun. Perfect for the Halloween season for all you American folks.

I'm scared of gore, but I am certainly not scared of Alan Tudyk.

Y'all pick such eclectic movies....i like that about you. :)

I just read about this in my Entertainment Weekly magazine...the guy who made the movie is the son of one of my favorite actresses, Sally Field! I can't wait to watch it....hmmm, I wonder if I can get to it before Halloween?

I'm definitely going to have to get this one out. I love Alan Tudyk so much. Everything is better with Alan Tudyk in it :)

How in the world do you find these movies? haha It sounds like a goofy movie, for sure.

I, being one of those Americans, don't care for the scary halloween movies AT ALL. Hate them in fact.
