Brisk, rambunctious splatter-comedy

Lush photography of the beautiful New Zealand hills combines with skin ripping mayhem and over-the-top humor to make one of the funniest of the new wave zombie satires yet.

It's a lively affair, extremely violent, full of black humour and what might be called shear terror.

A raucously hysterical romp by some seriously twisted filmmakers.

The farce maintains a rollicking pace and the performances are more accomplished and likeable than a film of this sort generally musters.

The jokes don't quite stay the course, but writer-director Jonathan King generates far too much goodwill for you to mind.

If you're in the mood for black comedy - especially if you enjoyed Shaun Of The Dead - this is shear (pun intended) enjoyment.

This impeccably filmed comedy horror film echoes An American Werewolf in London and early Sam Raimi and Peter Jackson, but it has its own unique energy, and it's a must-see.

Enjoyable, frequently hilarious horror comedy, although it's stronger on laughs and gloopy gore effects than it is on actual scares.

While it's rarely fall-down hilarious, it's witty enough to please horror fans in search of a light-hearted tribute to splatter flicks of old.

Make up your own sheep-related pun - ewe'll love it, mutton to be ashamed of, ram-bunctious etc. If you only see one zombie sheep movie, you won't have a lot of choice, but this certainly delivers all you could wish for.

The only people who are likely to feel hard done by are vegetarians, farmers and those whose stomachs are weaker than their sense of humour.

The performances may be uneven, but the flawed characters are believable, the sheep surprisingly scary and the animal antics often laugh-out-loud funny.

Like its ovine stars, Black Sheep is none too smart, but will certainly coat you in its fluffy warmth and put an affectionate smile on your face. Lacks much real bite, mind.

Black Sheep is flat-out comic-horror genius...

Amid the blood, gore, shrieks and ovine freaks, there's plenty of novelty value in this original flock-horror fest, albeit little else.
