BLACK SHEEP (New Zealand horror/comedy)

http://www.apple.com/trailers/indepe...sheep/trailer/

Been following this one for a while, and it's nice to finally see a trailer. In terms of quality, I'm hoping this is more Shaun of the Dead than Undead (another offbeat Aussie horror flick, one that didn't work out terribly well) and the footage is definitely promising. The mint sauce and Weta's little Lord of the Rings homage...

I caught a midnight screening of this film at the Toronto International Film Festival last year. I didn't buy the killer sheep running joke. So, I did what any unimpressed person would do at a midnight screening. I fell asleep.

This was ravaged on Ebert & Roeper. Haven't seen it myself to comment.

This got pretty mediocre reviews when it opened down here a few months back and seemed to be in and out of theaters very fast (I didn't even end up seeing it, it was gone so quickly.) Trying too hard to be a "cult" movie it sounds like.

I enjoyed it. Nothing spectacular, but it's a fun, quick, entertaining flick.

I should check this out. I loved Shaun of the Dead and Dead & Breakfast which was just a little less funnier than SOD but still it was pretty good & I highly recommend it (Go "Blind Buy" It on DVD) to anyone who likes this type of unique genre.

I ended up seeing this last month and thought it was terrible. Kept hoping the whole time that it might get better, but things never did. The entire movie hinges on fart jokes, for cryin' out loud...

The trailer is great. I'm hoping for our arthouse to get it...or AMC Select.
