"...POSSIBLY THE SINGLE BEST MIDNIGHT MOVIE OF ITS ERA..."
"RIFE WITH BLOODY GORE AND FUNNY GAGS" (Sam Adams, Los Angeles Times), Black Sheep is a gruesomely twisted horror/comedy about mutant flesh-eating sheep run amok in rural New Zealand. When sheep-aphobic Henry returns to sell his share of the family farm, he finds his brother has been genetically altering the animals. The resulting monsters go on a murderous rampage, and it's up to Henry to stop them. With frighteningly grotesque effects courtesy of Peter Jackson's WETA workshop, Black Sheep is a frenzy of severed limbs and manic mutton definitely "not for the weak of stomach" (Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News).
Although this movie certainly had its funny moments, the balance between humor and horror was a little off. A fun enough watch, though, and short enough not to drag.
