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

great zombie film.....with sheep!
26 February 2007 | by (Somerville, MA) – See all my reviews

I went into this film with high hopes, but no expectations and I was very impressed with it. This is a great zombie film with plenty of suspense and jump-out-of-your seat moments. The actors all did a great job and it was shot extremely well. It is a very fun and high quality movie. I had read someone else's comments about it being full of low-brow humor and fart jokes, but there were actually only two jokes in the entire movie that would be described that way.

Anyone who likes the "serious" zombie movies like Dawn of the Dead or 28 Days Later would enjoy this film as would the audiences of lighter films like Shaun of the Dead. It's somewhere in-between the two. I definitely recommend it.
