Well, Tucker & Dale vs. Evil probably has you beat because it literally is the result of one massive chain of miscommunication and director Eli Craig understands how to walk that line of silly comedy and horror just perfectly. Lead actors Tyler Labine and Alan Tudyk give some very memorable performances and help make a harmless little indie film a great comedy with some really impressive horror effects."
