New ’100 Bloody Acres’ Stills Share Recipe For Success!

100 Bloody Acres

We now have a small image gallery for 100 Bloody Acres, the Australian horror-comedy from Doppelganger Releasing in limited theaters and on various VOD platforms June 28.

Written and Directed by Colin and Cameron Cairnes, the film stars Damon Herrriman, Agnus Sampson, Anna McGahan, Oliver Ackland, Jamie Kristian, and Wolf Creek‘s John Jarratt.

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). But when Reg starts to fall for Sophie, one of the intended victims, things get complicated…

Said to be 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.

    I haven’t seen 100 Bloody Acres yet but just read a good review of it in Rip It Up:

    Shot in rural SA (to make it creepier?), feature-débuting co-writers/co-directors Cameron and Colin Cairnes’ horror/gore/comedy/romance (no, really) is beaut, nasty fun, even though it’s genuinely as rough as guts.

    A bickering love-triangle-ish trio comprising Sophie (Anna McGahan), James (Oliver Ackland) and Wes (Jamie Kristian) are on their way to a music festival and bickering away when car trouble hits. They’re first helped, and then kidnapped, by Reg Morgan (Damon Herriman), who spirits them back to the farmhouse headquarters of Morgan Brothers’ booming blood-and-bone fertiliser business, which has really picked up since the addition of you-know-what.

    Hoping to please intimidating big brother Lindsay (Angus Sampson), Reg instead pisses his sibling off badly, as he grows attached to Anna and doubts that he can put her through the grinder, while a cop (John Jarratt – um, spoilers?) sniffs about and proceedings get darker, funnier and messier. Compared to early Wes Craven outings, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Wolf Creek and Rob Zombie’s pics, this is actually a different kettle of giblets, as it instead manages a vein (get it?) of true-blue ocker humour, a winning sweetness and pricelessly comic performances from Herriman and Sampson (in a role he was born to play).
