Black Sheep


(2006) ★★★

BBC2: Sunday 30 August, 11.45pm

“It’s an exciting time to be involved in agricultural science…” Nathan Meister and Danielle Mason left to clean up the mess when a toxic genetic experiment at a New Zealand farm goes belly up. Killer sheep! Where one goes, others are sure to follow…

A weird and ever so slightly wonderful comic horror in the ba-ba-barking gory style of Peter Jackson’s early work, the likes of Bad Taste and Braindead. The violence of these lambs has to be seen to be believed. Where’s Babe when you need him? Shear agony! And, yes, it was sold as Shorn of the Dead.
