Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times: This fairly rote tale of rural ghouls and their passing-through prey has its own hick charm, mostly because of performers who never overplay their hands. Read more

Richard Kuipers, Variety: A gory and funny riff on the trusty standby of city kids being menaced by rural types. Read more

Sam Adams, AV Club: 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. Read more

Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic: "100 Bloody Acres" is gory good fun. Read more

Drew Hunt, Chicago Reader: Though entertaining enough as a genre exercise, the film is too simplistic to transcend its base concept. Read more

Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune: It sounds appalling, but "100 Bloody Acres" has a spring in its step. Read more

Megan Lehmann, Hollywood Reporter: You'll laugh, you'll squirm. Read more

Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times: "100 Bloody Acres" somehow manages to be both retro and up to date with its giddy, delightful gross-out horror-comedy mash-up storytelling. Read more

Nick Schager, Time Out: It's a film that's about as funny and/or scary as a lump of sod. Read more

Rob Staeger, Village Voice: 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. Read more
