Go To

100 Bloody Acres is a 2012 Australian comedic Slasher Movie starring Damon Herriman, Angus Sampson, and John Jarratt.

Reg and Lindsay run a business selling organic fertilizer. Theirs is very high quality due to a secret ingredient: People! They're running low on supplies until they run into a group of friends on their way to a music festival.

This film contains examples of:

  • Bad People Abuse Animals: Lindsay smacks Aunt Nancy’s dog Maigret across the room when it attacks him for killing its owner.
  • Big Bad: Lindsay Morgan finds the people harvesting fertilizer business.
  • Big Brother Bully: Reg asks Lindsay if he's gonna hurt him again before he chokes him to near-unconsciousness, indicating a history of abuse.
  • Bloody Hilarious: Surprisingly for this genre, mostly averted, though there is one scene where James nearly drowns that’s played for comedy.
  • Cain and Abel: Reg and Lindsay are brothers and partners in crime, but unlike Lindsay who is unambiguosly evil and psychotic Reg is more human and gentle and eventually pulls an Heel–Face Turn at the end.
  • Dark Reprise: Lindsay sings the song from their fertilizer company’s ad as he prepares to kill his brother.
  • Death by Irony: Lindsay is ground up by his own mulcher.
  • Evil Is Bigger: Lindsay is played by Angus Sampson, who is 6’3” and towers over everyone in his scenes.
  • Evil Plan: Lindsay Morgan seeks to kill a bunch of teenagers who uncovered his corpse fertilizer operation.
  • Fiery Redhead: Sophie is loud and snarky and has red hair.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Lindsay, while technically unisex, is typically a female name.
  • Gory Deadly Overkill Title of Fatal Death: Parodied.
  • Human Resources: Morgan Bros. makes fertilizer out of corpses.
  • Ludicrous Gibs: Downplayed, though still present.
  • Mushroom Samba: Wes is on acid almost the entire movie, leading to a sequence where he runs away from Lindsay through a park tripping balls.
  • The Place
  • Pragmatic Villainy: Lindsay is pissed that Reg brought living people for the fertilizer since corpses are much less of a hassle to process.
  • Promotion to Parent: It’s implied that Lindsay raised Reg.
  • Shout-Out: An audiobook of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is playing in one scene.
  • The Sociopath: Lindsay Morgan, a fertilizer owner who makes his product out of corpses, and is not above killing anybody, including his own brother, to keep it going.
  • Title Drop: When Wes is screaming for the cops, Lindsay tells him no one can hear them because they’re on “a hundred bloody acres.”
  • Villainous Crush: Reg for Sophie. This helps fuel his Heel–Face Turn.
  • Villainous Incest: Lindsay is very close with Aunt Nancy.
  • White Shirt of Death: Reg’s white shirt ends up entirely soaked through with blood by the end.
