Music Box Films has picked up the horror-comedy 100 Bloody Acres for U.S. distribution. The title will land under Music Box Films’ new imprint, Doppelgänger Releasing. This division will focus on genre titles and their rollout across all distribution platforms including theatrical, DVD, and digital outlets.
The feature debut of Australian filmmaking brothers, Colin and Cameron Cairnes, 100 Bloody Acres tells the twisted tale of an organic fertilizer business that experiences increased sales when its owners stumble across a “secret ingredient” – one that’s processed through a meat grinder – that really helps their fertilizer to fertilize.
Along with 100 Bloody Acres, Doppelgänger Releasing ’s initial 2013 slate will include Eddie the Sleepwalking Cannibal.
The film is another horror-comedy outing, this time hailing from Denmark and about a once-famous, struggling painter who receives a fresh shot of inspiration when he begins living with a sleepwalking cannibal.
Look for both titles this Spring.
