      What to Know

      Critics 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.

      Emilliano Jr S Rubbish horror b movie. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/04/24 Full Review Fleegle B Not baaaaad at all ewe should watch it Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/20/24 Full Review Steve D I didn't find it remotley funny. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 09/17/23 Full Review Stormy R After coming back to this movie in 2023 it just wasn't the same. Although I did enjoy it as a kid. Kinds freaked me out but it's a funny as movie. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/24/23 Full Review Daniel W Whether you'll like Black Sheep largely depends on how funny you find its central joke (using sheep as a horror antagonist). Personally, the cast and crew won me over with their enthusiastic dedication to taking the film seriously and following its premise to (il)logical extremes. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 10/21/21 Full Review Audience Member Utterly ludicrous but with plenty of humour and over the top gore, anyone who likes Peter Jackson's early films will love this. Sadly it falls over at the end with weak d*ck and f*rt gags and a need to somehow resurrect a lot of people, but it's still great fun.

      Anil Sinanan Times (UK) This woolly mix of hilarity and horror works best when played for baaad laughs. One thing is sure - it will put you off doner kebabs for life. Oct 24, 2017 Full Review Cliff Doerksen Time Out Rated: 1/5 Nov 17, 2011 Full Review Anthony Quinn Independent (UK) The farce maintains a rollicking pace and the performances are more accomplished and likeable than a film of this sort generally musters. Rated: 3/5 Oct 12, 2007 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Gore and blood supply the film’s main attractions, whereas humor and characters are secondary, if not wholly nonexistent. Rated: 2/4 Mar 8, 2024 Full Review Jason Adams My New Plaid Pants A heap of fun. In the vein of modern B-movie classics like Tremors and Arachnophobia, Black Sheep never takes itself too seriously Jul 2, 2021 Full Review Leigh Paatsch Herald Sun (Australia) They used to say New Zealand was the land where men are men, and the sheep are nervous. That equation may be reversed forevermore after this very entertaining Kiwi horror-comedy. Rated: 3/5 Apr 16, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
