Enjoyable enough.

This Floridian "hicksploitation" flick doesn't have a hell of a lot going for it, but does prove to be genuinely amusing at times. It begins with three brothers, Monroe (William Kerwin of "Blood Feast" and "Two Thousand Maniacs!"), Ezra (Daniel Schweitzer), and Benny (Sam Moree), who are fiercely dedicated to Mother Nature. So much so that when construction workers begin clearing their forest in order to start creating a park, they see red. After an altercation with one of the workers, the poor schmuck is chopped in half with his own bulldozer blade. And the brothers feel that now that they've killed someone, there ain't no turning back. Soon they're intent on wiping out the two couples that have had the audacity to enter their domain. Now, the star, and co-writer of both the story and the screenplay, Wayne Crawford, has the biggest character arc, playing the young man grown disillusioned by working for a weapons manufacturer (he's a pacifist) who's gonna have to find some sort of fighting instinct inside of him. But the best actor in the thing is definitely Kerwin, whose character is more likable than anyone else here, and certainly the least abrasive. Most everybody else is flat out annoying, although Benny is such a hoot the way that he rocks that enormous white man's Afro. Director / co-writer Harry Kerwin (William's brother, who also directed William and Wayne in the eco-conscious conspiracy thriller "Barracuda") includes enough sleazy elements to try to maintain the interest of drive-in movie fans, particularly sex, bare skin, and rape. The main problem here is that the movie is rough going for a while, setting up characters but taking too long to get them where they're going. Some of those tunes are catchy, but after a while the music gets to be a bit much. Only in the last 20 minutes or so do things get more interesting, with the backwoods brothers determined to eliminate the city folk. An interesting, crude 'n' cheap, yet oddly entertaining little flick, "God's Bloody Acre" is no classic of its particular sub genre, but fans of this sort of thing may still want to check it out. Six out of 10.
