31 Days of Horror: ‘Tucker And Dale vs. Evil’ is dead set on fun

Tucker And Dale vs. Evil’ Film Poster

Tucker and Dale vs. Evil

Written by Eli Craig and Morgan Jurgenson

Directed by Eli Craig

Canada, 2010

Over the years, Canadian film and television has gotten a reputation for being something that leaves a lot to be desired. It’s often depicted as low budget productions with mediocre acting, and a film grain to make you cringe. Except more and more, outstanding Canadian cinema is making headlines in Hollywood for being cutting edge, artistic, meaningful, not to mention downright funny. From the classic Quebec film C.R.A.Z.Y., the franco-anglo production Bon Cop Bad Cop to The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz, Canadian films are more than just bad film stereotypes; they’re innovative, imaginative, and a joy to watch.

And that goes for their genre cinema too.

This week in the world of Canadian film, for Sound on Sight’s 31 days of Horror, »

Why You Should Get Hulu Plus

10 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

There’s no denying the fact that online streaming platforms are the thing of now. Unrestrained by the finite schedules of broadcast, streaming networks, such as Netflix, are offering fans the opportunity to watch old (and original) programming on their TV, computers, or phones. Thanks to the success of Orange Is the New Black and House of Cards and the hype surrounding upcoming series, The Cosmopolitans and Transparent, Netflix and Amazon Prime are getting a lot of attention while Hulu has quietly ramped up its offerings — making it one platform everyone needs to get on board with.

With its own library of original shows (The Hotwives of Orlando) and online exclusives (Misfits, The Only Way Is Essex), going Plus is one thing you undoubtedly need to do this fall. Here’s why:

While Hulu Plus constantly touts its large collection of online exclusives, it’s not always clear »

DVD Review: Deadbeat: Season One

28 August 2014 1:56 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Good TV shows are hard to come by. Well, it used to be that way, but these days we’re given such great Television as Hannibal, True Detective, Penny Dreadful and so on, that it seems that we’re living in a great time for TV. With such dramatic shows kicking ass nonstop, the amount of genuinely funny TV programs seem to be dwindling, as viewers are more interested in being bummed and moody (don’t me wrong, I’m definitely not complaining) that in laughing their asses off. Enter Hulu’s original series, Deadbeat. With how many films and shows that Tyler Labine (Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil, TV’s Reaper) has stolen with great supporting roles, it was only a matter of time before he was given one to lead, and after watching the entire first season of Deadbeat, I can say: he does one hell of a job. »

Exclusive Interview: Tyler Labine Talks Playing a Medium on Deadbeat and the Status of the Tucker & Dale vs. Evil Sequel

27 August 2014 10:26 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

A stoner and a slacker, Kevin “Pac” Pacalioglu has trouble paying rent, yet has the awesome ability to communicate with ghosts. Tyler Labine stars in Deadbeat, a Hulu original series. With Lionsgate releasing Season 1 of the show on DVD (plus Digital) exclusively at Target this week, I had a chance to chat with Tyler about Deadbeat, the status of the Tucker & Dale vs. Evil sequel, and more.

Kevin “Pac” Pacalioglu has the impressive ability to see and talk with ghosts, and he’s also a stoner and a bit of a slacker. What attracted you to playing this unique take on a medium?

Tyler Labine: The role came to me as an offer through Dakota Pictures, who produced it. They sent me the first four scripts to give me an idea of what the show was going to be like. I think they had eight written. After reading the first four, »

Cat Deeley ditches fun side for bad girl role in 'Deadbeat'

23 April 2014 9:59 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

New York (AP) — U.K.-born and bred Cat Deeley has found a place in Hollywood, thanks to hosting the Fox dance competition show, "So You Think You Can Dance," which will launch its 11th season next month. The Emmy-nominated TV personality also has a role in the Hulu original comedy series "Deadbeat." A 10-episode first season is posted on the website. "Deadbeat" stars Tyler Labine as a pot-smoking slacker named Kevin who also happens to be psychic. He finds a nemesis in Camomile, played by Deeley, a psychic who has built an empire out of faking her ability to communicate with the dead. "My character is a real baddie," said Deeley, 37, in a recent interview. "She is rotten to the core. She's vile, she's manipulative but she plays America's sweetheart, giving people closure." Deeley talked about "Deadbeat," her character and "So You Think You Can Dance," which premieres its »

Review: Deadbeat is Frighteners-like Fun Minus the Scares

11 April 2014 7:36 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Nearly a year ago, Netflix put out it’s first (of hopefully) many original horror titles with Hemlock Grove. While it was received with much polarity, Hulu is now gracing us with their own original genre title Deadbeat and it is a whole different animal. Deadbeat is a multi-camera horror comedy from Cody Heller and Brett Konner, two of the main writers of the FX dark comedy Wilfred. The ten episode series tells the story of Kevin Pacalioglu (or Pac), played by Tyler Labine (Tucker and Dale vs Evil, Reaper), a stoner medium who is consistently behind on his rent and best friends with his drug dealer, conveniently named Roofie (Brandon T. Jackson). The central plot of the show focuses on Pacalioglu discovering that his long time crush and rumored celebrity medium Camomile White (played by Cat Deeley) is a fraud and the fallout from the discovery.

Hulu Original Series Boss Charlotte Koh Departs Amid Shake-Up

9 April 2014 4:03 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Charlotte Koh, head of content development at Hulu Originals, has departed the streaming company. The move comes just more than a week after Hulu hired seasoned TV development executive Craig Erwich. The former president of Warner Horizon was tapped as Svp and head of content March 31, tasked with leading the content and programming strategy for Hulu and Hulu Plus as one of the first major hires by new CEO Mike Hopkins. That move apparently made things more crowded with Koh, who helped launch Hulu originals like animated The Awesomes (renewed for Season 2 to air this summer), comedy The Wrong Mans and docu-series Behind The Mask. (Koh unveiled 17 original series on tap for 2014 in a January blog post.) But that push came at a time when Netflix and Amazon made major strides establishing slates of network-quality comedy and drama series, and the hiring of Erwich signaled Hulu’s intention to become »

Hulu's Deadbeat: Ghosts, Drugs and a Naughty Cat Deeley

9 April 2014 12:08 PM, PDT | TVGuide.com - Features | See recent TVGuide - Features news »

Hulu's new original comedy series Deadbeat is both familiar and different at the same time. 

Although the show features a typical TV conceit — a protagonist has one amazing skill, but the rest of his life is a disaster — when you add in ghosts and a large quantity of controlled substances, you get something you'd be hard pressed to ever find on your TV dial.

Cat Deeley On New “Sytycd” Season and Her Bitchy Side On “Deadbeat”

9 April 2014 10:59 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

While it’s barely feeling like Spring in many areas, some of your favorite shows are already preparing for the summer TV season. Leading the pack, of course, is Fox’s long-running dance competition series, So You Think You Can Dance. The show is currently holding dance auditions all over the country in preparation for the launch of season 11 on May 28th.

Auditions came to Southern California recently so TheBacklot was up bright and early on a Sunday morning to hit The Orpheum Theatre in downtown Los Angeles to talk with everyone’s favorite host, Cat Deeley, as well as last season’s male winner, Du-Shant “Fik-Shun” Stegall.

Deeley had more to talk about than just the auditions, however, as she’s taken on a scripted role that gets to show off a creative, bitchy side we don’t see too often on Sytycd. As fake medium Camomile White in »

Hulu’s ‘Deadbeat’ Is Catered To The Binge-Watching Crowd

9 April 2014 9:56 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Hulu has released Deadbeat, its first scripted original series of 2014. The ten-episode comedy about a slacker who works as a medium has been released in its entirety on the Hulu Plus subscription platform. Deadbeat stars Tyler Labine as Kevin, who has the ability to commune with spiritual beings. This premise is similar to Ghost Ghirls, Yahoo Screen's paranormal comedy, but while that series' protagonists are dumb, imperceptive, and self-absorbed, Kevin's fatal flaws are his laziness, slovenly appearance, and lack of self-confidence. Most of Kevin's jobs are low-maintenance, matching his personality. He's not trying to fight discordant spirits or fend off Gozer. Instead, in the first episode, he helps a deceased soldier lose his virginity. The best news is that Deadbeat is pretty good. It won't blow anyone away, but it's definitely better than Mother Up!, consistently funnier than The Awesomes, and is on the whole one of the better original series Hulu has distributed. »

'Deadbeat' Review: Tyler Labine and Cat Deeley's New Hulu Comedy is on Life Support

9 April 2014 12:00 AM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

On Hulu's latest original scripted program Deadbeat, Tyler Labine plays Kevin "Pac" Pacalioglu, a medium who helps ghosts deal with unfinished business that keeps them roaming (mostly unseen) among the living. This is Labine's second supernatural series, having played the stereotypical comedic comic relief best friend/sidekick on Reaper. Think a much pudgier Stiles (Teen Wolf). Now Labine is the leading man on a 22 minute comedic take on the incredibly trendy genre saturating current programming.

Unlike the melodrama Ghost Whisperer, Deadbeat keeps its storylines pretty simple. After seven episodes, none of the characters are any more developed than in the pilot, although some of Pac's idiosyncrasies become more recognizable. »
