This weekend in the US , my good friends the Cairnes brothers make their US debut with the fresh new film, 100 Bloody Acres.
The boys have been working hard with the fellas at Morgans Organic to get their unique and design award winning website up and running and you can see some of the Morgans truly original earlier social marketing work here.
It’s already been well reviewed by several including even the Hollywood Reporter that had this to say….
“Melbourne-based brothers Cameron and Colin Cairnes show impressive discipline in their modestly budgeted feature debut, mixing gore and chuckles in equal measure and creating unusually fleshed-out characters that have the film knocking at the door of above-average splatter comedies like Shaun of the Dead and The Cabin in the Woods. Gore hounds looking for something different in their horror-film diet should propel solid business when Doppelganger Releasing opens the film in limited release across the U.S. and on VOD on Friday ahead of its Australian release Aug. 1. The U.K. and Germany follow later in the year.”
“The bucolic Adelaide Hills setting, expertly shot by cinematographer John Brawley, contrasts nicely with the gloomy interiors and the surreal lensing of Wesley’s utterly extraneous, but very funny, acid trip through a backwater tourist trap called Fairyland.
Lively performances all round, a shrewdly structured screenplay (it won the Slamdance Screenwriting Competition in 2010) and a fun cameo from Wolf Creek’s John Jarratt separate this from a crowded field of genre mashups. And that meat grinder stays busy.”
It’s also making it’s Australian debut later in the year so look out for it if you’re local. And rest assured. It’s bloody funny.
Here’s a few more reviews.
