The Zombiephile Reviews Black Sheep

Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later.

Written and directed by Jonathon King, New Zealand’s Black Sheep is probably the world’s first zombie-sheep movie, and most than likely, the last. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t hold a special place in this Zombiephile’s heart. A cautionary tale about the dangers of mixing genetic engineering and zombies, Black Sheep bites you by the shin and doesn’t stop shaking until the movie’s outrageously climactic ending.

There’s really not much that we can say about Black Sheep. It’s about sheep. They bite people. Those people turn into zombies that are also kind of…shall we say, Sheepish? And yes, there’s even some sheep-shagging, if you know what I mean.

If you’re looking for a serious zombie movie, look elsewhere. If you’re looking for a ridiculous, hilarious story about zombie sheep eating people, you’ve come to the right place.

Moans.

    I JUST WATCHED THIS MOVIE AND THOUGHT IT WAS EHH OK AT BEST. I LIKED THE IDEA IT WAS KIND OF NEW. I THINK IT MAY HAVE INSPIRED THE MOVIE MULBERRY STREET.

  2. I’ve been curious about Black Sheep … having written a comedy/horror novel (about zombie chickens, no less) I know how difficult it can be to straddle the fine line between ‘creepy’ and ‘funny’ … and I own sheep. I was worried that this movie might make those pre-dawn chores a little freaky, but it sounds like it leans a lot closer to comedy than horror. Thanks for the review – I’ll probably rent this one.

    hey…i some how just ran across your site

    and seeing as this is the most recent post just wanted to thank you on not being a ” corporate” zombie movie lover….it fills my heart to know there are people out there who share the same hatred for fast paced, machine gun toting, communicating zombies……

  4. I remember hearing about this movie but I forgot about it. I’m glad you reminded me.

    You know what I could really get behind? Zombie ferrets. Ferrets can squeeze through tiny cracks and under doors… that’s way scarier than sheep.

  5. I didn’t think much to this film at all. It was a cleaver idea, but I think they could of made it a lot better then it was.

    I for one quite enjoyed “Black Sheep” which worked out well considering I brought it unseen at the glowing recommendation by my brother. It was a nice change and brought back the spirit of “Shaun of the Dead” as a nice relatively calm Zombie adventure. One of the most compelling features of the movie for me was all the great jokes that were played straight, thus adding to their charm. Definitely a great movie and as being one of the first bits I’ve seen on this site I’ll sure to be back.

Zombies moan. Zombiephiles moan back.
