Black Sheep

SciFi Weekly has posted a review of the new comedy-horror movie out of New Zealand, Black Sheep. Farmer Angus Oldfield has turned to genetic engineering to create bigger and fluffier sheep. Then, as you might expect, it all goes horribly wrong.
It turns out that [peacenik environmentalist] Experience and her bumbling eco-terrorist boyfriend (Driver) have accidentally released a mutant lamb into the sheep populace and turned them all into bloodthirsty carnivores. A single bite from an infected sheep could turn a human into a gooey gigantic were-sheep, but mostly the rampaging herd just overruns its victims, goring the entrails out of their bodies and chewing the eyeballs out of their heads.
The verdict: ". . . it looks like everyone was having a sheepishly good time putting together this funny little B movie that's deserving of an A grade." Black Sheep sounds like the perfect summer horror flick.

You can see the trailer on the official movies site.

This sounds great! I hope it comes here. I can't wait to see it. And I love that poster/add for it. Creepy. Ha ha.

I had to bribe my fiance into seeing it with me, but she's on board now. How can you not love a movie with a tagline like "Get ready, for the violence of the lambs!"

I'm waffling on seeing it. I don't really like gore, but it does look funny. I wonder what would happen if the sheep teamed up with the killer rabbit in The Holy Grail?
