Get the flock out of here!

There are 40 Million sheep in Noo Zillun and they're pissed off. They've formed a scrum and the lineout is chanting Ka Mate Ka Mate, Ka Ora Ka Ora!

Have a look at this new Kiwi fillum - a schlock horror film made around the premise "an experiment in genetic engineering turns harmless sheep into bloodthirsty killers that terrorize a New Zealand farm" The Violence of the Lambs

Henry Oldfield, the ovinophobic younger sibling of a farming family, returns home to sell out to his older brother Angus who’s secretly running a reckless genetic engineering operation on the farm. Attempting to expose Angus’s perverted practice of animal husbandry, two bumbling environmental activists accidentally release a mutant lamb into the populace, infecting the herd and turning them into mutton on a mission - crazed and out for human blood.

Together with farmhand Tucker and pretty peacenik activist Experience, Henry finds himself trapped in a phobic frenzy that until now only existed on his therapist’s couch. As a group of international investors arrives for the unveiling of Angus’s supersheep, the rampaging, predatory flock begins to descend from the hills. Mankind faces a danger far beyond a stampeding mob of bleating, woolly carnivores, as one bite from an infected sheep causes a horrific mutation into a… weresheep!

Baah! More on the making of BLACK SHEEP Here

The trailer appears to be a hit with the YouTubers. It's had 177,000 hits in three weeks and 4 out of 5 stars from 177 ratings.
