If there was a list of movies about killer mutated sheep, this would undoubtedly be the best of the bunch.
Fernando F. Croce

Brisk, rambunctious splatter-comedy
Ron Wilkinson
Monsters and Critics
April 6, 2008
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.
| Original Score: 7/10

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.

Daily Mirror (UK)

Once the novelty wears off, we're left with a poorly-made black comedy with plenty of gore but little suspense and even fewer laughs.
Andrew Pulver

Shaun of the Dead has set the bar pretty high for this sort of thing; Black Sheep just isn't nearly as funny or suspenseful.

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

There are plenty of decent laughs, but the shadow of the far superior British zombie romcom looms large.

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.
Matthew Turner

Enjoyable, frequently hilarious horror comedy, although it's stronger on laughs and gloopy gore effects than it is on actual scares.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

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.

Dopey editing, ropey pacing, hokey story structure, scrappy sound, rubbish rubbery gore and acting that would shame a toddlers' nativity play.

Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't but there's plenty of chuckles and chills along the way as Henry, Tucket and Experience face the threat of a couple of hundred sheep bright-eyed with bloodlust.

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.
