Black Sheep (2006)

    see all cast/crew...
Studio: Weinstein Company
Genre: Horror, Killer Critters, Australia & New Zealand

A genetic engineering experiment gone horribly awry turns a large flock of docile sheep into unrelenting killing machines in this rural horror comedy directed by Jonathan King and featuring special effects designed by Weta Workshop. When the death of his father and a stress-induced fear of sheep pushes him toward the edge of a nervous breakdown, skilled farmer Henry Oldfield leaves the family farm behind in a desperate bid to achieve inner peace. Upon returning to the farm following a 15-year absence, Henry discovers that his brother Angus has been performing genetic experiments on the sheep. Unfortunately for both the brothers and the rest of the humble farmers who make their living off of the land, these experiments have produced a strain of sheep that crave human flesh and will stop at nothing to satisfy their diabolical hunger. ~ All Movie Guide

I had higher hopes for this movie as a parody. Unfortunately it tries to be both parody and serious about its scares, and so neither works very well. There are a few really funny moments but the parody line keeps getting broken with by-the-numbers horror bits and 'gotcha' cuts, none of which are scary but are not funny either so it breaks the mood. The actors play it mostly straight too, even the hilariously broad animal-right-eco-terrorist characters. The make-up and effects are mostly old school (as opposed to CG) and done well. This movie likes its gore factor. Overall, I enjoyed it but would have preferred they stuck with the funny side of things more often.

Over The Top & Out Of This World !!!
Just when you thought you've seen it all, here is something completly different. Movies that are off beat, over the top, or just plain "campy". Recomended for a Friday or Saturday night.
