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

This lurid lunacy from New Zealand is a horror-humor cross-breed of animal lore and giddy gore.

Anyone lacking a taste for red meat will likely say bah to the one-joke juiciness of Black Sheep, but ovine enthusiasts will be licking their chops.

Stunning vistas of New Zealand's rolling countryside aren't enough to carry this lame 2006 horror spoof about a lab experiment gone awry.

The most gruesomely satisfying spectacle for hard-core environmentalists would be that of a group of foreign investors in the evil enterprise being gobbled up by a flock of rampaging sheep.

...Black Sheep never rises above sensation and splatter, or goes beyond the one thing it does best: It bites.

Black Sheep is never very frightening, but it's clever and fun, with a memorable amount of humor and gore. Imagine if the Monty Python folks made the killer rabbit part from Holy Grail into a full-length movie.

Like Snakes on a Plane, the whole movie is essentially contained within the title. All the picture itself does is to repeat that concept for 87 minutes.

It's the Triumph of the Lambs.

I suspect [director Jonathan] King's next film will be better.

A strenuous goof, one that will test your tolerance for the violence of the lambs.

I pretty much hated it. Like the zombie spoof Fido from a couple of weeks ago, this is a one-joke movie -- and the one joke gets old fast.

Only a 12-year-old boy would view this collection of squishy grotesqueries and squirting arteries as perfect Friday-night entertainment.

Black Sheep is essentially a silly, grisly elaboration of a simple idea: What if sheep started feasting on human flesh and turning their victims into huge ovine zombies?

A one-joke skit that trots in a straight line, and your enjoyment of it will depend entirely on how many times you need to see gonzo sheep rip out human entrails.

Rife with bloody gore and funny gags.

It's still relatively early in 2007, but this wry comedy about sheep gone baaaaad promises to be the best vampire-flesh-eating livestock movie of the year.

Slickly made but not deeply felt, and while [director] King shows signs that he may one day make a film as rich as Peter Jackson at his peak, next time he should try to get the audience to care equally about the eaters and the eaten.

Absurdly, magnificently gruesome.
June 21, 2007
Jonathan King's film is an intentionally moronic mash-up of horror clichés bound to delight all fans of grade-Z entertainment.
June 21, 2007
A giddily subversive addition to the age-old cinema tradition of the horror comedy.
May 4, 2007
If you're in the mood for something sillier, Black Sheep awaits. There are plenty of laughs, but don't let that fool you: This one's not for the weak of stomach.
March 10, 2007
Endearingly amusing.

Veteran music-video director Jonathan King's first feature film mixes black humour and over-the-top gore in an old-school horror romp that harkens back to the early films of Peter Jackson.
