Consensus: With an outrageous premise played completely straight, Black Sheep is a violent, grotesque, and very funny movie that takes B-movie lunacy to a delirious extreme.

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

For a low budget, this movie was good. Not brilliant but not bad either. But I must say that the mutation was quite unnecessary.
