Black Sheep (2007) 
Pretty Good!
3/4 stars

This movie is genius because it is able to make generally harmless sheep as dangerous as those ravenous zombies in “28 Days Later.” Even though it’s more comedic than horrific, the film is clever not just in its title but also in its way of telling the story. I think this is perfect for those who are too scared of “real” horror movies because there are a lot of genuinely funny scenes, but it won’t leave out the horror fans because it has plenty of gore. I shouldn’t have watched this while I was eating because some scenes are so gruesome to the point where I wanted to throw up. Nathan Meister is great as the “black sheep” of the family who went to live in the city after his father’s accident, leaving his brother (Peter Feeney) to take care of the farm. Over the years, Meister developed an unhealthy fear of sheep but chooses to return to the farm to find some sort of closure (according to his therapist). Things go horribly wrong when Danielle Mason’s character and her friend try to steal a biohazardous material from the farm’s laboratory. Teaming up Meister and Mason was a smart move because they do have some sort of chemistry even though they don’t realize it. Mason is hilarious as the activist who doesn’t eat meat and yet is plunged into a world of tearing up flesh and blood squirting out all over the place. It’s irony in its most obvious, but at the same time, in its finest. In some scenes, I noticed some of this film’s influences: “An American Werewolf in London” during the transformation scenes and “Night of the Living Dead” because of its story and the film is set in a farm in the middle of nowhere. I recommend this especially to those people who are into cult films. This picture is not meant to be taken seriously (it’s about sheep zombies, for heaven’s sake!), but it does have implications about how we treat animals, the environment, and each other.
