* NotWhatItLooksLike: The entire premise of the film. Tucker and Dale's well-meaning actions unintentionally make them look a bunch of [[HillbillyHorrors psycho hillbillies]] to the students camping in the area, who proceed to treat them as such. A particular highlight is Tucker and Dale trying to explain to the local Sheriff how the college kids ended up killing themselves on their property, only to end up [[DiggingYourselfDeeper Digging Themselves Deeper]] when Dale mentions that he (accidentally!) knocked out Allison with a shovel and put her unconscious body in his bedroom.

Quick, just how many times you have heard setups like this before? Bunch of college kids are going into a forest in West Virginia to party and generally have a good time. On [[HorrorDoesntSettleForSimpleTuesday Memorial Day weekend]], of course. On their way to the place they encounter some weird hillbillies at the gas station. Soon [[DeadlyRoadTrip things escalate and they find themselves locked in a bloody combat]] involving the rural against the urban. Now let's take a twist on that so that the kids are ''not'' the oppressed protagonists. Here, it's the ''hillbillies''.

Meet Tucker and Dale. They are two best friends who have taken a little vacation to fix a cabin in the woods which Tucker has bought. On their way there, they ran into the aforementioned college kids at the gas station. They inadvertently give the wrong first impression and the kids are convinced that they are typical creepy backwood hicks like the ones in movies. Later on our two heroes meet the kids again when they are fishing. They accidentally scare the female lead of this film, Allison, when she's about to go for a swim and she almost drowns. They save her, but again they give the wrong impression about themselves and the college kids think they have actually ''kidnapped her''. Several accidents and [[PoorCommunicationKills more misunderstandings]] later, the planned vacation goes to south big time for our duo as they have to put their best against... '''EVIL'''.

In this case,

They save her, her and take her home with them to recover, but again they give the wrong impression about themselves and the college kids think they have actually ''kidnapped her''.

** Although in a way, they technically do end up being in a SlasherMovie. [[spoiler: Chad just turns out to be very very wrong about precisely which one of them's the psycho slasher killer...]]]

** One of the best examples of this is when Dale is chased into the forest by the vengeful teens, which mimics chase scenes from horror movies -- first person camera, weird, swingy camera movements and occasional shots of the protagonist running. He even trips and tries to hide. [[spoiler: This is also a CallBack to the memorial day massacre, and doubles as foreshadowing.]]
