Black Sheep

Not to be confused with the Chris Farley movie, Black Sheep (Unrated) is quite possibly the comedy of the year (that year being 2007).  Horror movie or not, the hilarity in this one does not stop and it’s oh so quotable which I just love in a movie.  One of my most favorite exchanges here:

“You fucker!”

“Actually, it was more like a sperm sample…”

“You wanker!”

*giggles*  It’s fun to try to work that into conversation.

Sheep are not as cute and cuddly as you think, oh no!

Hailing from New Zealand and bringing us some fresh new territory in the form of were-sheep, this is a cautionary tale against genetic engineering.  Our hero (who incidentally after growing up on a sheep farm, has a phobia of sheep) returns home to sell his part of the farm to his brother who has been raising sheep on it this whole time.  Unfortunately (or rather, fortunately for us), it turns out that his brother (who is oh so deliciously evil and slimy) has been doing experiments on the sheep, trying to create a perfect specimen.  Of course the experiments go horribly wrong and the next thing you know you’ve got sheep attacking and eating humans who then turn into gigantic sheep themselves.


Aw, c’mon, I just wanna give ya a little nibble!

I know, I know, it sounds incredibly cheesy (and I guess it is a little) but more importantly it’s HILARIOUS.  And disgusting.  There are some definite gory blood and guts shots so this isn’t so much for the weak stomached crowd.

See? Just a nibble…

If you’re looking for a bit of a different horror comedy, definitely check this one out!

  1. Great review for a great film. This movie literally had me weeping with laughter. And yet not ;many folks know about it. It is a chuckle a minute and dfinitely the best mix of gore and humour that I’ve seen in ages.

  2. Those sheep couldn’t be less black.

  3. Hey!! I had forgotten about this one!! This needs a rewatch!! I remember this being really good : )

  4. I loved this movie! I was laughing my ass off. It was so hardcore too. Great post! 😀

  5. This was a fun watch. Not a film I’d watch again real soon, but fun nonetheless.

    • Hey, Mike, thanks for stopping by! It’s actually been about 5 years since I’ve seen this so I think I’d like at least one more viewing but I can absolutely see how it could be a one time watch for a lot of people.

  6. Love this movie! I actually got to see this one in a theater. Absolutely ridiculous. Love the practical effects too.

  7. I remember watching this a few years ago and I thought it was great. It is the kind of movie that shouldn’t work, but it really does. Nice review.

  8. I’m just waiting for the spiritual sequel set in America, where cows get zombie mad cow disease. Both cows and zombified hamburgers would go on a rampage slaying the owners of fast food chains and their portly customers. It would be called, Running of the Bulls.

  9. No more counting sheep at night when I can’t sleep, they’re too scary!!!

  10. I loved this movie. You can’t go wrong with weresheep. Great review!

  11. Fantastic and really funny 😀
    Actually watched this in Uni, lecturer left and we normally sneak a video on and somebody brought it on a pen drive (me) 😀

  12. Yes yes yes, I love the hell out of this movie. Way better than the Chris Farley version where they are campaigning in washington or something. Whatever, Black Sheep is that fun dose of absurdity from a country where this could literally happen. Just saying.

  13. This movie is GROSS!!

  14. I’ve been told by a few that I need to see this. It’s not my usually type of flick, but I may still check this one out! looks like it’d pull a few laughs outta me! ha Good review
