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.

"100 Bloody Acres" somehow manages to be both retro and up to date with its giddy, delightful gross-out horror-comedy mash-up storytelling.

A blend of horror and comedy is the kind of tonal impertinence that should be near-impossible to pull off, but that's not stopping filmmakers these days, especially bloody-minded Australians like debut writer-directors Cameron and Colin Cairnes.

Brothers Colin and Cameron Cairnes carry it off with a good deal of energy and style, providing just enough blood and guts to satisfy horror fans, leavened with a large dollop of black humor...

You'll laugh, you'll squirm.

One sees a film called 100 Bloody Acres expecting the requisite allusions to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, but an homage to the best scene in Melvin and Howard comes as something of a shock.

It's a film that's about as funny and/or scary as a lump of sod.

Playing like a Down Under Elmore Leonard novel, 100 Bloody Acres features lucky breaks and quick reverses; a persistent soundtrack of Aussie oldies helps keep the mood cheery, despite a literal vatful of blood.

Frankly speaking, this flick capably represents almost everything I admire about indie Aussie genre films. I expect to see more from these filmmakers soon.

100 Bloody Acres is extremely funny comedy for viewers who can handle bloodshed, death and yappy little dogs being kicked across the room. (No dogs were harmed in the making of this film.)

A gory and funny riff on the trusty standby of city kids being menaced by rural types.

While the Australian horror-comedy film 100 Bloody Acres isn't a knee-slapping, hilarious film, it's still a pretty fun flick that manages to pull off laughs as well as violence, gore and some truly sick plot twists.
| Original Score: 3/5

Expect this to emerge as the best comic-horror pic of 2013.
