Aug 9, 2014This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. Classic comedy horror, funny, stupid, predictable at times (which makes it even funnier) and it even made me jump a time or two. Excellent one liners, characters and script. If this had been made 30 years before it would be in the hall of fame.
One of the characters gets bitten by a genetically altered infectious sheep, later he gets an itchy foot and takes his boot off to find a sheep hoof in place of his foot. Brilliant!!… Full Review »
Mar 10, 2013Henry returns to the family farm to overcome his fear of sheep after a traumatic childhood incident, but he and several other unlucky visitors must fight to survive when the genetically-altered flock turns on their masters! The outrageous horror comedy BLACK SHEEP scores big laughs with its absurd stance against biological engineering. No one is safe when writer/director Jonathan King makes the self-righteous environmentalists out to look just as foolish as the careless scientists. With the award-winning WETA Workshop assigned to the film, one can only expect the best out of the special effects department, and they deliver. The sheep look incredibly realistic as they just obliterate everything in their path, tearing off flesh and ripping the guts out of each of their victims in a hilarious display of comic gore that calls back to New Zealand's other famous Horror film, DEAD ALIVE. Unsurprisingly, the characters and plot quickly lose focus when faced with the ridiculous antics occurring on screen. Although the overall silliness does begin to wear by the third act, BLACK SHEEP is still a wildly entertaining film that creature fans are sure to enjoy.
