Storyline

Growing up on the family sheep farm was idyllic for smart, sensitive Harry Olfield, except for some knavish mischief from cocky brother Angus, until their dad has a fatal accident. Fifteen years later, Harry has finished sheep-phobia therapy and his ICT schooling and returns. Angus buys him out, all ready to present the genetically engineered Oldfield sheep he bred with a ruthless team. When environmentalist Grant steals a discarded embryo, which has sharp teeth, he gets bitten by it, and thus the first to be infected with predatory hunger and a mechanism that turns any mammal into a werewolf version. Running for the farm men, Grant's mate, student Experience, gets teamed up with Harry and his boorish but gentle pastoral youth friend Tucker. They must survive both the bloodthirsty sheep and their creators, who didn't realize this yet but dispose of an antidote. Written by KGF Vissers

Damn good movie. Scary in two ways.
18 May 2007 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie was lots of fun. It is not really for intellectual heavyweights, but if you want to be entertained for an hour and a half, then this is definitely one to watch.

It certainly stereotypes New Zealanders in a way I bet will annoy them no end, but it probably points to the maturity of their nation that they can get away with sheep-sex jokes without it causing too much angst.

There were some great one-liners, and the special effects were quite sophisticated too. The psycho sheep looked quite real at times.

I am just wondering how they got the real sheep to act so convincingly, by running in the right direction at the right time, and going up to people etc. I owned sheep as a child, and they are dumb animals.
