After listening to the latest bombcast when Patrick was talking about the adoption of CG in horror films, it prompted me to remember Black Sheep. That gem of a film had no CG at all(?). Anyway, I was interested to know how many have seen that great New Zealander movie.
Remember seeing it on the Fantasy Film Festback in 2007 and I have the special edition DVD lying around somewhere.The audience reaction was mixed in the cinema... But I think this was more of a problem of people who go knowingly in a fun splatter movie and complain afterwards that it was dumb and only consisted of splatter scenes and stupid jokes... In my opinion it's a pretty solid fun splatter movie.
And for the record I've seen the Chris Farley/David Spade one as well...
Black Sheep (zombies, not Farley) is absolutely great. Everyone should check it out, seriously. If you like subtly comedic horror films, you can't go wrong. It plays the horror angle completely straight and on the surface is taking itself very seriously, while at the same time being quite clearly tongue-in-cheek. It's a great approach.
Black Sheep (East Coast hip-hop act, popular in the early 90s) is also great. Their first album, A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing, is a classic.
