"There are 40 million sheep in New Zealand... And they're pissed off!"
The movie tagline tells you all you need to know about the plot, an incredibly silly but quite fun horror-comedy about mutant zombie sheep in the country turning humans into were-sheep. One moment in particular is incredibly hilarious but it's spoilt by appearing on the film's publicity trailer.
A decent low-budget effort, with special effects created by WETA (who also created the effects for the Lord of the Rings trilogy), and if you're in the mood for something incredibly silly you're likely to get some enjoyment from it.
Did You Know:
The character Mike is reading a book called "The Penguin History of New Zealand". It's a real book written by Dr. Michael King, father of director Jonathan King.
