Black Sheep
Terrified of sheep and dosed up on therapy, Henry Oldfield returns to his family's farm to sell out to his older brother Angus, unaware that something baaaad is going on: Angus' reckless genetic engineering program. When a pair of inept environmental activists release a mutant lamb from Angus' laboratory onto the farm, thousands of sheep are turned into bloodthirsty predators.
I am going to be completely lame and let AVID ANDY own this review. He basically said everything I wanted to say.

"Well, after much anticipation Black Sheep finally came to town. Part of me wishes it never had. I was wanting it to be so much more than the campy, 86 minute Weta Workshop effects vehicle it turned out to be. I did laugh, but I also rolled my eyes a lot. The first 20 minutes or so were the funniest to me because the novelty of the zombie, attack sheep hadn't worn thin yet. I do have to admit that I laughed almost every time there was a cut away to a sheep. I just couldn't help myself. They looked so oblivious with their blank stares amongst (that's right..."amongst") all of the craziness going on around them. In the end Black Sheep didn't live up to it's potential. Instead it relied too heavily on gore effects, sheep flatulence and penis biting."

There you have it...

My final thoughts would only be that the concept of a zombie sheep is brilliant. I am a huge advocate of taking seemingly harmful things and making them the hungry creatures of the night. But ladies and gentleman...I recommend watching the trailer and imagining how amazing the movie could've been. It's far more exciting than the watching/reality process.

God I hated this movie. Two Stars?
I loved this movie!!! Oh sure, it could have been a bit better but ... seriously ... we're talking about rabid mutant man-eating sheep. It was awesome.

Ha...i am sorry...this movie was horrible. I wanted the movie to be deathly serious about the concept ofzombie sheep. I thought taking it seriously would be far more hilarious than a campy Sheep of the Dead.
