100 Bloody Acres (2012) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
100 Bloody Acres (2012) contains profanity, alcohol/drug use, twisted gore, violence ,dark humor and suggestions of sexual matter and incest. There is a lot of suspense scenes that may frighten viewers because it involves a lot of captivity, chasing and eventually a lot of killing. I do not recommend horror fans with a weak stomach to see this movie because it is very grotesque.
100 Bloody Acres was directed by two brothers; Colin Cairnes (Beggar’s Belief, Brand New Towkay, Parental Guidance) and Cameron Cairnes (Celestial Avenue). Colin and Cameron do not have much experience in directing but they outdid themselves with this low budget movie. This is a good horror movie for all horror fans, you will find yourself laughing and then in an instant grossed out to the max by seeing a huge amount of bloodshed.
Damon Herriman (The Water Diviner, The Little Death, Son of a Gun) did an astounding job playing Reg Morgan. Reg and Lindsay (Angus Sampson - The Mule, Insidious: Chapter 2, Blinder) operates a small bone and blood fertilizer business that they own in South Australia. Reg was doing his usual roadkill pick up while making local deliveries when he found a driver dead inside of his van that crashed. Reg covers the dead body and puts it in his vehicles. Driving back to the business, he saw three tourist that are stranded along the roadside. Against his better judgement, he picked up the tourist because he became instantly attracted to Sophie (Anna McGahan - Reef ‘n’ Beef, Undertow, BiPolar) and had a plan for sophie’s friends.
The movie starts to captivate me when Sophie’s boyfriend Wesley (Jamie Kristian - Shaking Dream Land, Devil’s Gate, Underbelly) and friend James (Oliver Ackland - 50-50, Tinman, The Bloody Sweet Hit) discover the dead body that they are riding along with. They soon begin to fear for their lives and for Sophie’s life because she is in the front seat with the assumed killer.
We now learn that Reg and Lindsay have committed many murders before - they are murderers. The movie gets really intense when the three friends (all tied up) watch the brothers put the dead body through the grinder. Wes manages to free himself and ran away but Lindsay pursues in chase and caught him. He then cuts off Wes hands and Reg starts to have seconds thoughts about everything. This movie has so many twists that I did not foresee the ending.
Please watch the credits at the end of the movie because there is an extra scene that shows/explains to us what happens next.
