The film tries too hard to be the next big thing in horror comedy and ends up a trite rehash of genre tropes.

Crossing Sweeny Todd with Tucker and Dale Vs Evil, the Cairns boys deliver a lot of laughs, nice and realistic dollops of sticky gore, and quite a lot of heart to boot.

A potently satirical realisation of what "dog eat dog" business strategy really means.

the Cairnes take the blood, bone and shit from other films, cut in some rustic romance and stoner comedy, and grind it all together into an agreeably homegrown blend.

A horror-comedy is typically much tougher to pull off than straight horror - or straight comedy, for that matter - and that balance is all over the shop in this occasionally giggle-worthy, hap-hazard affair.

A highly amusing little horror movie, elevated by uncommonly layered performances, not to mention the voluminous amount of fake blood spewed, limbs torn apart, oddball sex scenes, and one particularly amusing drug trip.

The elements are potentially there for a bloody good time, if gore & black comedy is your thing, yet the debut feature for Colin & Cameron Caines falls flat.

A wickedly funny romp that heralds the arrival of some seriously fiendish talent.

100 Bloody Acres is as mercurial as its central character, breezily offbeat one moment, spattered in gonzo gore the next. It's as if the filmmakers ground the bits of other movies fine enough that it made a rich foundation for their own.

The Morgan brothers' special blend of gross-out laughs is just sustainable enough.

It sounds appalling, but "100 Bloody Acres" has a spring in its step.

The "no worries mate" tone actually seems to fit an otherwise straightforward hunters-vs.-hunted scenario.

100 Bloody Acres pulls it off, finding some dark strains of humor and some grisly moments to go with them. For genre fans, it's a definite success.

It's gory, irreverent and gross, and it has a pretty cool soundtrack of old-timey Aussie novelty tunes.

An oddly amiable horror-farce that plays like a cross between 1990's Misery and 2012's Tucker and Dale vs. Evil.

This fairly rote tale of rural ghouls and their passing-through prey has its own hick charm, mostly because of performers who never overplay their hands.

The potential for mainstream crossover success is apparent; it's an exceedingly well-made work that both satirises and satisfies, though its gleeful gruesomeness won't be to everyone's taste.

Though entertaining enough as a genre exercise, the film is too simplistic to transcend its base concept.
