Brothers Reg and Lindsay Morgan run an organic fertilizer business in rural Australia. Despite being only a two-man operation, the Morgan Brothers have managed to turn it into a thriving enterprise thanks to a rather unorthodox secret ingredient-the bodies of car crash victims supplied by a tricky stretch of road surrounding the family farm. But it's been months since their last find and an important new customer is waiting on a delivery. When Reg comes across three twenty-somethings stranded on a remote country road, he concocts a radical solution to their supply problem, and a way of finally gaining the respect of his bossy big brother. Things don't quite go to plan, however, when Reg crushes hard on Sophie, one of their new captives. Now Reg must make a decision: go through with the plan and finally win Lindsay's approval, or save Sophie and her friends while quite possibly destroying the family business in the process. In their feature film debut that plays like a mash-up of Wolf Creek with Tucker and Dale vs Evil-brothers Cameron and Colin Cairnes craft a witty horror-comedy that blends sly Aussie humor with tons of gory fun.
