In 100 Bloody Acres, brothers Reg and Lindsay Morgan are struggling to keep their organic blood and bone fertilizer business in motion. Their secret “recipe” for success (using dead car crash victims in their product) was a huge boon to business, but lately supply has been gravely low. Months have passed since their last find, and an important new customer is now waiting on a delivery. When junior partner Reg (Damon Herriman of Justified) stumbles upon 3 travelers stranded on a remote country road, he cooks up a radical solution to their problem, and a way of finally gaining the respect of his bossy big brother (Angus Sampson, featured in the upcoming Insidious: Chapter 2). But when Reg starts to fall for Sophie, one of the intended victims, things get complicated. A bloody good time, the Cairnes’ brothers witty horror-comedy blends sly Australian humor, gory fun, and a clever storyline that gives “recycling” a whole new context. “They’re not murderers…they’re small business operators!”

Cat People (1942): Directed by Jacques Tourneur and written by Dewitt Bodeen, Cat People was the trailblazing first of Val Lewton’s nine horror classics. Simone Simon portrays a bride who fears an ancient hex will turn her into a deadly panther when she’s in passion’s grip.


I Walked With A Zombie (1943): Lewton takes the gothic romance of Jane Eyre, resets it in the West Indies and adds the overriding terror of the living dead for the screen horror classic I Walked with a Zombie. Frances Dee plays the nurse who witnesses the strange power of voodoo.


The Curse Of The Cat People (1944): Simone Simon returns in The Curse of the Cat People, a sequel in title but a landmark study of a troubled child. Dewitt Bodeen again provides the script, with Robert Wise making his directing debut, co-helming a gothic-laced mix of fantasy and fright.


The Body Snatcher (1945): Boris Karloff plays the title role in the Lewton adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Body Snatcher. A doctor needs cadavers for medical studies, and Karloff is willing to provide them one way or another. Don’t miss his scene with fellow horror icon Bela Lugosi.
