Black Sheep is your classic horror movie spoof by writer/director
Jonathan King who masterfully directs this film in the highlands of
New Zealand which ironically revolves around mutant sheep. You
automatically know that you are in for a treat early in the move
from its opening scenes where Henry's brother Angus, brutally
murders his brothers sheep and then wears its coat to scare Henry.
Fast forward 15 years later and Henry is unfortunately suffering
from post traumatic stress syndrome and cannot stand to be around
sheep. Henry however, returns to his family's property in order to
receive a cheque from his brother for half his share in the lands,
only to discover that Angus has been creating genetically modified
sheep who hunger on human flesh.
Although quite an original movie, Black Sheep sometimes fails to
deliver as it attempts to meld both the humorous and seriousness
"topics" together. With that said, Black Sheep has some classic
moments thanks to some truly dodgy and entertaining special effects
and although it may not be on the same level as Shaun of the Dead,
it's definitely a movie for those who enjoy the horror spoof genre.
Presented in 1080p HD Widescreen, this is truly a cinematic
experience as the attention to detail is amazing and it is almost
like you are walking through the highlands of New Zealand. Match
that with perfect sound and a very entertaining audio commentary
plus some great deleted scenes and Black Sheep is one enjoyable
ride, even though some bits miss the point.
