100 Bloody Acres

100 Bloody Acres

About the Film

In 100 Bloody Acres, brothers Reg and Lindsay Morgan are struggling to keep their organic blood and bone fertilizer business in motion.  Their secret “recipe” for success (using dead car crash victims in their product) was a huge boon to business, but lately supply has been gravely low.  Months have passed since their last find, and an important new customer is now waiting on a delivery.  When junior partner Reg (Damon Herriman of Justified) stumbles upon 3 travelers stranded on a remote country road, he cooks up a radical solution to their problem, and a way of finally gaining the respect of his bossy big brother (Angus Sampson, featured in the upcoming Insidious: Chapter 2). But when Reg starts to fall for Sophie, one of the intended victims, things get complicated. A bloody good time, the Cairnes’ brothers witty horror-comedy blends sly Australian humor, gory fun, and a clever storyline that gives “recycling” a whole new context.

Reactions

“Gory and funny...jaw-dropping...top-notch...McGahan is luminous...Herriman is outstanding.” - Richard Kuipers, Variety

"A laugh riot and completely bizarre. Sick and twisted. Highly recommended…I had a blast!" - Kwenton Bellette, Twitch

"Clever, creative, adorably gruesome! A strong balance of gross humor and shocking violence. I expect to see more from these filmmakers soon." - Scott Weinberg, FEARnet

"Genially twisted and very funny! Directors Cameron and Colin Cairnes mix gore and chuckles in equal measure and create unusually fleshed-out characters that have the film knocking at the door of above-average splatter comedies like Shaun of the Dead and The Cabin in the Woods." - Megan Lehmann, The Hollywood Reporter

"Giddy, delightful gross-out horror-comedy mash-up storytelling! The film revels not only in the flying body parts but also its erstwhile rom-com entanglements. Great summer counter-programming for anyone who wants to unwind with a bit of bloody fun and goofball gore." - Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times

4 STARS! "The best low-budget horror comedy since "Shaun of the Dead" and one of the most assured first features in ages. This is a smartly written and acted and exceptionally well-directed movie. The film's mix of over-the-top gore, yokel slapstick, deft wordplay and free-floating ominousness recalls "Blood Simple" and "Fargo." - Matt Zoller Seitz, RogerEbert.com
