Black Sheep is one of those films that if you don’t “get” the premise, or think that a horror/comedy about genetically altered sheep in New Zealand that go on a bloody, man-eating rampage is funny, then you probably won’t like it.
The Special Effects crew are the wizards at WETA, whom you might remember from the Lord
The idea pretty much sells itself – genetically mutated sheep become evil and attack humans. Humans bitten by the sheep become…weresheep. Before you laugh, know this: weresheep are actually kinda scary. And tough. Tall, too. So don’t dis them before you see Black Sheep
The movie was great fun, much like “Shawn of the Dead.” It was horrific like a horror/comedy should be, and funny like a horror/comedy should be. Just showing the sheep milling about with spooky music had the audience in stitches.
If you decide to go to the Lagoon Theatre in Minneapolis to see Black Sheep, make sure to stop by Bar Abilene and ask for Jill. Not only will three Tequila-Whiskey-Cokes help you enjoy the movie, but Jill is hands down the Greatest Server In The World. And try the house Guacamole made fresh right there at your table.
