100 BLOODY ACRES is as good an example of the amusing horror/slasher movie as I have perhaps ever come across, and I think the reason is that the filmmakers (above) do not push anything in untoward fashion. From the first, as we are introduced to the two sets of characters who will soon interact -- the three "kids" (two of whom are shown below) off to see a Woodstock-like rock concert and the two brothers (shown further below) who own a local fertilizer company and have discovered how much better the use of roadkill makes their product -- each moment seems fresh and often off-the-cuff funny. Or grizzly.
Chrissie Page, who plays Aunt Nancy and offers up the biggest surprise of all. For its immortal line alone -- "When's the sound check?" -- which gave me my biggest laugh of the year so far, I'd have to recommend this movie. OK: I'm not saying another word. It's up to you. Seek this one out or miss a top-of-the-line treasure and a genre-mash-up for the ages.
Doppelganger Releasing, the off-kilter/off-color/on-target arm of the more art/mainstream distributor, Music Box Films -- has just come available on DVD. Let's hope, like other Music Box movies, it finds its way quickly onto Netflix streaming.
