100 BLOODY ACRES' Cameron & Colin Cairnes: The CFQ Interview
Australian brothers Cameron Cairnes and Colin Cairnes are making their feature film debut with 100 BLOODY ACRES. A black comedy in which a group of young concert-goers run afoul of a couple of brothers (Angus Sampson and Damon Herriman) whose blood and bone fertilizer business has seen a significant uptick in fortunes with the addition of human corpses to the mix, the film manages to subvert the typical TEXAS CHAINSAW set-up through an uncanny ability to zig when the audience is expecting a zag, and the Cairnes’ willingness to push relationship moments to the fore in the midst of all the gore.
I got an opportunity to talk with the Cairnes about their approach to horror and how they came up with Angus Sampson’s beard. Click on the player to hear the show.
