In the harsh, yet beautiful Australian outback lives a beast, an animal of staggering size, with a ruthless, driving need for blood and destruction. It cares for none, defends its territory with brutal force, and kills with a raw, animalistic savagery unlike any have seen before.
The use of dead car crash victims in the Morgan Brothers' "Blood and Bone" fertiliser has been a huge boon to business. But it's been months since their last find and an important new customer is waiting on a delivery. When Reg Morgan, the junior partner in the business, comes across three young people stranded on a remote country road, he sees a radical solution to their supply problems, and a way of finally gaining the respect of his bossy big brother, Lindsay. But things don't quite go to plan when Reg starts forming an attachment with one of their captives, Sophie. Reg must now make a decision: go through with the plan and finally win Lindsay's approval, or save the kids and destroy everything the brothers have worked for. They're not psycho killers... they're just small business operators.Written by

Offbeat horror comedy that doesn't break any new ground but does entertain
This Aussie romp about inept murder-brothers (played by Angus Sampson
and Damon Herriman) exemplifies what a horror-comedy should be. The quips are laugh-out-loud worthy, the physical humour is never absurd or bad enough to take you out of the moment, the premise is original enough, the reference humour is played well and doesn't get in your face (which I truly appreciate, and makes for the much better laugh), it's just haphazard enough to feel roller-coaster-y without feeling disjointed, from a formulaic standpoint it stands heads and shoulders above most other films of the genre. Unfortunately, this is about all that 100 Bloody Acres can really say for itself. It's true there's virtually nothing bad about it, but nothing stands out about beyond this either. It's a solid film, a recommendable one even, but there's no real staying factor here, and I fear its value will slip with the passing of time, which is unfortunate for such a rare bit of perfectly-toeing-the-line horror/comedy. 68% -Gimly
