Product Description

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.

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.

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.

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.

It shouldn't work, its probably the daftest idea for a movie since Snakes On A Plane, but it somehow, it's a good watch; probably will end up as a cult classic. Proof that New Zealand doesn't need a Peter Jackson type sprawling epic triology to tell a simple little story. Its a tongue, firmly in cheek little horror tale; played for what it is. A very cheesy, but enjoyable way to spend 90 or so minutes with your brain in low-gear. Only thing I found incredulous was that a Morris 110 could hit a sheep at speed and come off best.

By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER on 16 April 2014
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
