Rating: ***** (5 out of 5)
Year: 2007

Review: Any film that insinuates a sexual relationship between a megalomaniac and an uber-sheep has to be good. And it’s likely to make you laugh… for one reason or another. Black sheep is one of the recent flock of horror movies for horror fans. Although it can be supercilious at times, director Jonathon King sells the goofy moments by going all out on plot and gore and effects. Full motion genetic monstrosities, a bitable penis, and an homage to the transformation scene from American Werewolf in Paris are all pulled off hitchlessly by WETA workshops (the same people who worked on Lord of the Rings and Revenge of the Sith). The pastoral New Zealand landscapes put a tried and true genre piece in a beautiful and new environment. And while the idea of granting innocuous creatures with the lust and capacity for brutal evil is not new, the finesse and skill with which it is executed is. I doubt I’ll watch another movie this good this year.

Notable scene: In a dress shirt, without pants, and smoking a cigarette, the evil brother laments, “You wouldn’t understand,” Then a sheep wonders through the frame. ‘nuf said.
Gore:          Buckets
Sex/Nudity: Nipples
(But probably not the kind you want to see.)
Scariness:    Screams
Campiness:  Donald Pleasances
Creepiness:  Cellar Doors

Munchy Suggestion: 1 Box Dark Chocolate Cookie Dough Bites
