    Hmm...this movie was entertaining, but only because me and my friends saw it as a comedy instead of a horror movie. Seriously, we were laughing out loud! Problem is, I don't think that was its intention.

    Comedy horror from New Zealand about genetically "altered" killer sheep.
    Well it kills an hour & a half.
    It's predictable, silly & gross but it never takes itself too seriously.
    Oh & the Were-Sheep are just disturbing.

    Unfortunately, Black Sheep takes so long to get going and misses so many easy opportunities for classic comedy it has to be regarded as a noble failure.

    The cartoonish overkill that often makes Black Sheep a hoot proves wearying over an entire movie: The broad comedy and one-note characters eventually cancel out the horror, leaving elaborate set pieces that are more frantic than funny.
  3. A giddily subversive addition to the age-old cinema tradition of the horror comedy.
