DVD Review: Black Sheep (2006)

"This is one baaaad-ass movie!"
In Attendance- Me, Eryn, The VG and Cherrie.
Cast Members of Note- Nathan Meister, Peter Feeney, Danielle Mason, Tammy Davis, and a flock of insane killer sheep!

When a man suffering from a severe phobia of sheep returns to his childhood home (which also happens to be a sheep farm), baaad things happen. You see, his evil brother who now runs the farm, has been doing DNA experiments on the sheep, trying to cross-breed them with humans... I guess that's what made them go insane! 

"Baaa baaa ba ba baaa baaa!!!!!!!"
It doesn't help that big bro likes to bugger the sheep either, which I'm sure makes them hate humans even more. With a bunch of mongoloid and bat-shit-crazy sheep running around killing anything not woolen, it's up to a rag-tag group of heroes to save the day... and all of New Zealand? It might have been Australia, not sure. Kiwi, Aussie... I get confused.

With the memory of Sherry Lewis' death just too much to bear anymore, Lambchop snapped, and joined the fracas.
Will the angry, infected sheep bite the whole town and turn them all into mutant mongoloid sheep-man things? Will we ever find out what would possess someone to name their daughter Experience? Will a sheep bite someone's wankus clean off? I won't spoil what comes next for you here, but trust me when I say that it would have been better for all had they just gotten the flock out of there. Flock. Get it?

Were-sheep? There sheep!
Say what you will about this movie being silly, cheesy, etc... but Black Sleep was all kinds of awesome. The concept of evil sheep is just nuts, but the way that the film makers seemed to almost be playing it straight made it work perfectly. If you like tongue-in-cheek Horror that will make you laugh until you cry, then this movie is right up your alley. Oh, and the last frame of the movie topped the whole thing off perfectly. 

Just looking at this picture makes us laugh. A lot.
Just how much did that cab ride end up costing?  

Too much. It cost far too much.
Man-on-sheep love is never a good idea... I don't care how lonely the prairie gets. And no, going hoof to mouth is never acceptable! 

Little does she know it, but Snowflake is about to get the ole' rugger-bugger!
Sheep rape (both ways), mass sheep-on-human violence, mass human-on-sheep violence, fresh haggis being prepared... this movie delivers the wet, red goods!

Was it rape?
None, unless you count freshly shorn sheep as "nudity."  

"I'm not a tree. I'm a fucking sheep!" or "You Baaastard!" or "A sheep just ate Angus's Wangus!" This movie is filled with great comedic lines.

I have no words.
Being a shepherd is a dangerous job. Also, Sheep can drive cars!

Cotton-Neck bleated like crazy as he drove himself off of the cliff, but it was all for naught. R.I.P. Cotton-Neck.
This isn't a tour-de-force in filmmaking or anything, but it is an absolutely insane, fun ride, that will entertain you if you have any semblance of a sense of humor whatsoever. Do yourself a favor and grab a copy of this movie, and enjoy your ass off. Now.


Black Sheep is available no on Blu-ray and DVD.

Here are some more pics from Black Sheep, because who doesn't want some more of Black Sheep?


  1. Lol! this review is bad ass, too. There is this Romanian joke about sheppards high in the mountains, no women, only sheep. Well, two of them are experienced, but the third is a rookie. After a few weeks of blue balls he gathers the courage to ask the older ones what do they do when... you know. And they answer him that they take a sheep and... go behind a bush or something.
    After some more blue ball time, the youngun takes a sheep and finally does it. The other sheppards are rolling on the... grass... laughing. "What?! It's not like you didn't do the same!!!" "Oh, yeah we did... but not with any one that ugly!"

  2. I had a great time with this movie. And you're right, the fact that they play it straight (for the most part) makes it even better.

  3. OMG! I just bought this one (ever since I saw the trailer when I watched El Superbeasto, had to see it), HAD TO! There was just something about it, I knew it would be a good one to have and I was so right! Well, your review made me a bit more obsessed to get it......Ha!

    It was such a fun flic to watch...kind of reminded me a bit of Sean of the their reactions to the madness ensuing.

    This is a definite library add if you like those types of, a bit disturbing in areas, and gory (mix in some black comedy) favorite mix!

    I to got quite a kick out of the "toonces'esque" bit where the sheep drove off the cliff....greatness!
