Brothers Reg and Lindsay Morgan run a very unique organic fertiliser business. An important customer is waiting for a delivery and the small business operators need a fresh supply of their 'secret ingredient' to process the order. Complications arise when Reg picks up three young people on their way to a music festival, stranded by their  broken-down vehicle.

In this clip, the three young people have been tied up while older brother Lindsay tries to work out what to do. 'It's a very stressful time for all of us', says Lindsay (Angus Sampson) which is hilarious given the circumstances. The all-pervading sense of menace is well conceived and wonderfully shot in the darkness of the barn. The twisted brotherly affection mixed with fear between Lindsay and Reg bubbles under the surface and is effectively conveyed through good direction and slick editing. Described fairly accurately by some as an off-the-wall, splatter-comedy, 100 Bloody Acres challenges us to laugh at some of the more inappropriate scenes in cinema.
