Colin and Cameron Cairnes’ horror debut “100 Bloody Acres" is out in Australian theatres NOW.
Released 1 August, the film stars Damon Herriman, Angus Sampson, 2012 Heath Ledger Scholarship winner Anna McGahan and 2009 winner Oliver Ackland.
Herriman and Sampson play two brothers who run a successful organic blood and bone fertilizer business.
The film premiered at the Melbourne International Film Festival Last year, and received glowing reviews from Variety and Twitch.
“Gory and funny! Jaw-dropping! Top-notch.” - Richard Kuipers, Variety
"A laugh riot and completely bizarre. Sick and twisted. Highly recommended…I had a blast!" - Kwenton Bellette, Twitch
100 Bloody Acres is being distributed in Australia by eOne Hopscotch.
The Cairnes brothers’ next project will be “They Shoot Hostages Don’t They?" - a comedy that has received some development funding from Screen Australia.
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, featured in the upcoming Insidious: Chapter 2). But when Reg starts to fall for Sophie, one of the intended victims, things get complicated. 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.
