TUCKER AND DALE VS. EVIL (2010)
On the surface this seems like it would be a movie I would hate. I mean it's an intentional horror-comedy and it's fairly new. That alone is almost always a formula for a shitty time but amazingly I enjoyed this stupid tale of two hillbillies who get mistaken for stereotypical kill-crazy psychobillies by a bunch of dumb college kids. Our two title idiots are sorta like if you took Abbott & Costello, made them hicks and dropped them in the middle of a backwoods slasher flick. It's at least a unique spin on things and not another awful zombie flick You get all the things that make up a decent slasher including some gore with multiple impalement, a girl who has face weed-whacked off and a guy jumping into a wood-chipper among other tasty bits and some of these things are even achieved with practical FX which is nice in a world full of lazy asshole filmmakers. There's some hot ladies who aren't unwatchably annoying like most modern actresses and this is worth viewing if you don't mind something dumb yet amusing.
