A mixed-bag Aussie horror

100 BLOODY ACRES is something of a mixed bag when it comes to horror film-making. To begin with, it's an entirely derivative piece of work, which begins with the usual hitchhiking twentysomethings hitching a lift with the wrong person and soon coming to regret it. The shadow of WOLF CREEK and its ilk hangs heavy over this torture-themed film and once the cheesy bloodshed begins, it's all rather silly.

But some of the silliness is intentional. 100 BLOODY ACRES is posited as a black comedy so the laughs here are largely intentional. The problem with this set-up is the viewer needs to have the same sense of humour as the writers and that's not always the case here as sometimes the humour feels forced and laborious. The main villain of the piece is an annoyance rather than imposing or amusing although the supporting cast members are pretty decent and make for likable victims. The set-up tends to be better than the pay-off and it all becomes a bit aimless in the second half, throwing in gross-out gags and random gore rather than telling much of a real story. WOLF CREEK it isn't (despite the John Jarratt cameo).

A Funny and Twisted Dark Comedy.

I ran across this movie while looking up information on the actor Angus Sampson, after my girlfriend and I finished the second season of Fargo. I was impressed with his serious and somewhat viciously silent Bear Gerhart, and wanted to look up a couple of his other film. I wasn't disappointed with '100 Bloody Acres, and is a great addition to the dark-comedy genre.

The real gem in this film is the comedy duo of Reg and Lindsay Morgan; two bumbling bogan brothers who run their own fertilizer business in rural Australia. Damon Herriman plays the younger of the two (Reg) who only lives to impress his brother played by Angus Sampson. They have a strange relationship to say the least (some odd kissing scenes going on there too), but you definitely get the feeling that something is completely messed up with these guys from the get go. They play off each others' dialogue, action and mistakes so well, that it's easy to believe they're siblings just trying to make ends meet, but are so mental that they both suffer from the same disorder: severe stupidity.

Sure the movie is fairly predictable throughout, and there is some absolutely terrible acting from the main trio who end up in trouble, but events unfold and there are some very funny and gross moments in this film. I credit Cameron and Colin Cairnes with some excellent comedic writing, and some pretty funny dialogue. Direction wise it's a short and sweet little film without too much going on. It's a very A to B plot line, and they didn't bother with any useless plot twists. The jokes are well timed, but few and far in between which resulted in a few dead scenes that were absolutely bothersome to get through. By the end of the film, they were definitely focusing on the dark and gory side of things.

If you enjoy a twisted comedy then I would recommend this one.

Lunatic comedy

You find out your girlfriend has been cheating on you. You start quizzing her about it. You want not only number of times but when, where, what specific acts did they perform, everything. Your obsession with it is so intense that you start to sound a little bit not right in the head. You just won't let it go.

Now, imagine this conversation takes place while you and your girlfriend are both bound and bloody, and waiting for a couple of maniacs to grind you up into human fertilizer in a giant meat-grinder. That's how crazy this movie is. I especially loved the Aussie country music, which is every bit as goofy as you'd expect.

I have no proof of this, but I suspect the movie was inspired by an Ambrose Bierce story called "Oil of Dog."
