You'd probably like Tucker and Dale vs. Evil, if you don't have an issue with blood.
You know that wasn't that great, it was ok, but really just meh. It definitely has funny parts.
Hick is fantastic, it's something else entirely, it has soul. Tucker and Dale is silly trash compared to it.
Hick is more like for people who like things like Brown Bunny, Wonderland (the John Holmes story), The Slums of Beverly Hills, maybe a "lighter" Bully or Spun with a more positive ending...people who like indie films about either real people or stuff that's based on real people who aren't easily shocked or offended and have a deeper sense of morality than what is politically correct.
I saw people bitching about Hick being amoral or immoral, but it has it's own morality and I actually thought the end was very moral and sweet and the best thing for her future; if anything I just thought it was kind of rough but realistic with some obviously exaggerated, absurd, weirdly funny parts.
I think it definitely has humor in it, too, so its actually kind of light for the subject matter it deals with, which is why I say it's like a lighter Bully or Spun.
I loved the musical placements too. I almost died when "Island in the Streams" and "Amie" came on, whomever connected the soundtrack to it knew what they were doing, though I was a little puzzled by the random 60s love songs since the film was obviously set in the early 80s.
Apparently it's not exactly a true story, it's semi-autobiographical, which means a woman took people she knew or incidents from her life and fabricated a cohesive fictional novel out of it.
My ESFJ ex would have loved it. It's one of those movies that made me wish I hadn't just completely stopped speaking to him. But at the same time, the characters in the movie serve to remind me that some people really are best left in the past, even with their good points.
