Yes, that is a sheep eating a man’s face. Courtesy of IMDB.
Let me start by saying this: Black Sheep is a movie about genetically engineered, man-eating sheep. If that makes you think “Oh man, what a great idea for a movie!” continue reading. If you think that sounds retarded, skip this article. This movie is not for you.
So you think a movie about genetically engineered, man-eating sheep is awesome. Good. You really can’t do any better in that category than Black Sheep. The plot, such as it is, involves a greedy farm owner who, in his attempts to create a better breed of sheep, has accidentally engineered evil mutant sheep, who not only eat people, but have the ability to turn humans into one of them.
Yes, you read that right. This movie has zombie sheep in it. I don’t know that this film could be improved in any way.
Anyway, a couple dirty hippies sneak onto the farm with the intent of liberating the poor sheep. Of course, as dirty hippies tend to do, they overlooked the fact that it might not be a good idea to fuck with things you don’t understand, and release the plague of killer sheep.
This movie is not for the weak of stomach. There is plenty of gore (both animal and human), some rather distressing nudity, and insinuations of sheep-shagging. But if you can enjoy a movie like this, and you have an odd/New Zealand sense of humor, you’ll love Black Sheep. Do yourself a favor and pick it up.
