A traumatizing childhood experience has left sensitive Henry (Nathan Meister) terrified of sheep. Not practical when you live in New Zealand. Now he is back, only to discover that genetic engineering has turned a whole lot of sheeps into blood-thirsty killers.
Jonathan King’s directional debut is something as rare as a zombie sheep movie. The outrageous concept of zombie sheeps played straight together with the fact that the movie never attempts more in the special effects department than what it is capable of, makes this a brilliant little gem for fans of the genre. Something that is evident in its more than modest succes. The cast all do a good job but one is almost tempted to ask: who cares? There are after all killer-sheeps around! A must-see for anyone favouring comedy horrors of the B-movie type.
The special effects were made by Weta Workshops who also did the special effects on The Lord of the Ring trilogy.
Writer/director Jonathan King is the man attacked by a sheep while trying to find his car keys.
