100 Bloody Acres (2012)

Reg and Lindsay run an organic fertiliser business and are in short supply of their “secret ingredient” to process through the meat grinder. 
They’re not psycho killers… they’re just small business operators.

100 Bloody Acres is the debut feature of multi-award winning filmmaking brothers Colin and Cameron Cairnes. The script won first prize at the 2010 Slamdance Screenwriting Competition and Best Feature Film at the prestigious 2013 Sitges International Film Festival, Midnight X-treme cateogry.

Reviewed by Richard Kuipers, Variety:
“A gory and funny riff on the trusty standby of city kids being menaced by rural types, 100 Bloody Acres reps a promising feature debut for Aussie brothers Colin and Cameron Cairnes. Pumping fresh juice into the formula by way of villains driven by economic imperatives rather than bloodlust, and victims more concerned with workshopping relationship issues than escaping certain death, the pic is primed to please gorehounds and has sufficient smarts to attract more upscale viewers”.
(Variety, August 2012.)

Reviewed by Matt Zoller Seitz, roberebert.com:
“100 BLOODY ACRES 4 STARS (out of 4 stars), the best low-budget horror comedy since Shaun of the Dead…..the script evokes everything from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Last House on the Left to Akira Kurosawa’s Stray Dog and Yojimbo, Rob Zombie’s The Devil’s Rejects and the exuberant exploitation pictures that Peter Jackson used to make.”
