Product Description

Blood-soaked horror comedy about a New Zealander, Henry Oldfield (Nathan Meister), with an unfortunate phobia of sheep. When Henry returns to his family's farm he is unaware that something baaaad is going on - his brother Angus' (Peter Feeney) reckless genetic engineering programme. When a pair of inept environmental activists release a mutant lamb from Angus' laboratory onto the farm, thousands of sheep are turned into blood-thirsty predators. Along with farmhand Tucker (Tammy Davis) and greenie girl Experience (Danielle Mason), Henry finds himself stranded on the farm as his worst nightmare comes to life.

From Amazon.co.uk

Viewed objectively, sheep aren't all that scary. They're actually quite cute and fluffy. But Black Sheep achieves the almost impossible by making you believe, at least for 90 minutes, that they could really turn into unstoppable killing machines. When a sheep-phobic ends up back on his family's farm to discuss his father's estate with his tyrannical brother, a pair of bumbling eco-warriors accidentally unleashes his worst nightmare--a flock of mutated sheep, hungry for human flesh.

Pitched perfectly between horror and comedy, Black Sheep fits neatly into the tradition of genre classics like Shaun of the Dead and American Werewolf in London. It's funny without either being cruel or becoming tediously post-modern, scary without being sadistic. New Zealand's rolling green hills make a stunning and rather incongruous backdrop for the bloodbath--and the prosthetics and special effects look fantastic, packing a visceral punch that CGI could never hope to match. Director Jonathan King paces the laughs and scares expertly; there's not a minute wasted in Black Sheep's runtime, and not a minute that isn't ridiculously enjoyable. Who'd have thought zombie sheep could be so much fun? --Sarah Dobbs

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.

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.

Given the almost overwhelming amount of total rubbish being pumped out in the film world, I found Black Sheep to be a refreshing comedy "zombie" thriller. Whilst touching on a more serious underlying message. The New Zealand setting and presumably writing had me drawing simularitirs with Peter Jacksons' Bad taste in its low-fi style and humour. With some nicely graphic maimings and deaths along the way. If you like Shaun of the Dead type films, this one is definately worth a look. Cheered up my week day evening no end. In my opinion First Class production and casting given the budget. A happy addition to my ever expanding film collection.

Sorry, couldn't resist that. It's that sort of film. Ridiculous, barking (or should that be .. no, I won't say it) and good for a giggle. Whoever thought up this idea must have been out in the fields collecting something for the weekend, Sir. And why not? Zombie sheep - makes a change from the more predictable human variety and it's dry enough to keep you entertained. "I am a sheep, I am a sheep ...... I AM a sheep." Yes, mate, but at least your immersion therapy has worked. Not for anyone who takes things terribly seriously, or for those who bottle feed lambs. I shall be viewing the ones in our fields with a different eye now. They're out there...
