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

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

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.
August 20, 2013
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.

It's taken three years for this negligible Aussie splatterfest to get its one-weekend-only release; you wonder why anybody thought to rescue it.

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

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.

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

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

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.

What Culture
August 28, 2013
A potently satirical realisation of what "dog eat dog" business strategy really means.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

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.

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.)

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.

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...
Kate Muir

100 Bloody Acres is yet another cheap'n'cheerful Australian comedy-horror film, made with gusto by Colin and Cameron Cairnes.

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

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

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
Simon Foster

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.
