Deliverance meets “Three’s Company” in director Eli Craig’s hilarious hillbilly-horror-comedy Tucker and Dale VS. Evil. The flick made its debut at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, but failed to lock down U.S. distribution. Now, Magnolia Pictures is coming to the rescue.

Magnolia has acquired the North American rights for the T&D and will release it on Ultra VOD on Aug. 26 and in theaters on Sept. 30. Headlining the cast are Alan Tudyk (“Firefly”) and Tyler Labine (“Reapers”) as Tucker and Dale, respectively, and the very hot Katrina Bowden (“30 Rock”).

Flipping the script on the backwoods-hillbilly genre, T&D follows two well-intentioned country bumpkins trying to survive a weekend of horrors at the hands of vacationing college kids who have mistaken them for killers.
