Black Sheep ★★½

A horror comedy—more the latter than the former—made and set in New Zealand (Weta Workshop did the special effects), "Black Sheep" is fairly entertaining and weirdly amusing, but its 87-minute running time is slightly too long for the material. The elements of gore and mostly unsophisticated humor are nicely balanced and well integrated into the silly plot. Unimpressive but adequate acting. Having seen this film, I will probably never look at sheep the same way again.
