Didn't expect too much going in but was pleasantly surprised.
Looks very good, making good use of the natural New Zealand scenery.
Silly plot, but carried off well by unknown (to me) cast and effects were convincing enough in an american Werewolf kind of way. Not a classic but well worth a look.
Blu-Ray picture and sound is top notch making very good use of 5.1 surround.

Animal rampages are nothing new to the horror genre. You may have seen dogs going mad before, in Cujo or Man's Best Friend. James Herbert wrote the all-too-plausible story of rats causing horror and havoc in London. We've even had seemingly innocent birds turning on us, thanks to Du Maurier and Hitchcock.
But SHEEP?
You'd never think these dim, fluffy animals with blunt teeth and no claws could become flesh-eating terrors, but this film begs to differ. A young New Zealander arrives back at his family farm after many years, to find his brother has perverted his family dream into a nightmare of genetic manipulation and profiteering. But that's about to come back and (literally) bite the corporate slimeball when two well-meaning eco-warriors try to steal evidence of his genetic tampering. A mutant sheep foetus gets loose and starts spreading malignant DNA through the local flocks, which turns the sheep into powerful, insatiable carnivores! But if you survive one of the sheep's attacks, you're not much better off...
Although this movie starts off a bit slow, and will be too implausible for some, it's excellent light relief for horror fans. It's got the same amusing tones of Shaun of the Dead and recalls Dawn of the Dead in a similar way. It's got tones of The Birds in it too, and even films like Dog Soldiers, thanks to perhaps the world's most unusual lycanthrope! (Vaguely recalls those old Sugar Puffs commercials where children turned into the Honey Monster. ;-) ) Finally, there's a trademark relief ending with an equally trademark worrying twist...
If you liked Shaun of the Dead or Severance, you'll enjoy this too.

Most people that wrote reviews seem to have been disappointed as they expected a serious horror movie. Well, this is not such. It is an absurd, gory black comedy, and a very good one at that. Killing sheep, c'mon, you can't expect that to be serious!! Just let yourself be entertained, don't take the movie or yourselves too seriously.

This film is never going to win awards for fine acting or for having a complex story line. What it is is a good old-fashioned horror comedy where you will laugh at whats happening to the characters rather than the lines they deliver.

It's a refreshing change from the usual Hollywood formula movies and IMHO is the spiritual successor to Bad Taste. Low budget, Low IQ, Lots of silly gore and Lots of laughs.

A great comedy/horror - with superb performances from the main characters, who play their corny lines totally straight. I especially liked Experience, the animal rights activist, and her daft inappropriate comments spouting New Age claptrap ('Pretend you're a tree' etc).
The film lampoons mad scientists, greedy farmers and vegetarian activists equally.
This is no sophisticated Hollywood movie - it's crass and gross in parts, at no stage do we believe that these mutant carnivorous sheep could be real, but we do believe that the characters believe they are, if that makes sense.
The film has a feel of 'Basket Case' about it. If you like that sort of thing - Black Sheep will tickle your fancy.

Format: DVD
Black Sheep, written and directed by Jonathan King is a wonderfully kooky horror comedy filmed out of New Zealand. Premise is simple, genetic tampering by unstable farmer man-child type has produced psychotic zombie sheep who like to chow down on human flesh. If you are "lucky" to still be alive after being bitten, you turn into a human/sheep hybrid - who likes to chow down on human flesh! All inhabitants of this island are doomed unless three spunky young heroes in waiting can overcome monumental odds and save the day!

With effects done by Weta being no bad thing, Black Sheep is a whole bunch of popcorn munching fun. Many of the jokes aren't really surprising but they hit the mark because the comedy is drawn nice and broad. It helps as well that much of it carries a sense of mischievous depravity about it, while the snarky asides to scientists and tree hugging environmentalists shows King to have a semblance of world awareness about him. The cinematography (Richard Bluck) is gorgeous, capturing the magnificent landscapes as a backdrop to the ovine carnage, and Victoria Kelly's musical score is jovial supreme.

Nothing earth shattering here, so those horror/comedy fans who venture in for the first time expecting otherwise will be disappointed. However, at under 90 minutes in length King's movie never once sags in pace or gasp for new comedic air. It's a short sharp shocker of a rib tickler and well worthy of a look if in the requisite mood. 7/10

I bought this over a year ago when the price had come and quite enjoyed it and was in the mood for a piece of daftness so I watched it again. The question is: should you bother to see it all?

Well there are: naive environmentalists, evil genetic experimenting scientists, a wicked farmer, sibling rivalry, (wait for it, I'm getting to the good stuff -now) carnivorous sheep, hungry sheep foetuses, mutant and mutating man-sheep (think wolfman without the fangs), the tender love between a man and a sheep (tastefully done), severed body parts by the bucket load, and all the entrails you can eat, plus a sheep-o-phobic hero.

The only problem is that no matter how much gore you fling at the audience, killer sheep just aren't scary and neither are the human-into-sheep hybrids. So: funny, yes; gory, yes; scary, no. But it is a lot of fun.

And watch out for the very funny gag at the end which immediately follows a sheep-dip.
