Geeks of Doom just introduced me to this movie, and it’s blown my mind. First, you take fangirl favorite Alan Tudyk of Firefly and Dolhouse fame. Then you add Tyler Labine from Reaper, who was the “wacky” best friend of the main character but still managed to get a great deal of laughs based on his charisma. Then you have them star as two rednecks who accidentally follow a group of stupid horny 20-somethings into the woods… and who are coincidentally around when these stupid kids accidentally (and brutally) murder themselves, so that the kids think they’re serial killers… and you have Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil. Just watch the trailer. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
