Managed just the right mix of comedy and horror.

There was a trailer for 30 Days of Night by the way.
That looks like a good un. I like the graphic novel a lot (although the later follow ups don't add much).

Black Sheep, a kiwi horror film of the kind Peter Jackson used to make before he went all fairy on us.

Ingredients: Mutant killer sheep, mutant were-sheep, chick with gun, BAD SCIENCE and bad lady scientist, obv.sheep jokes (in a good way), implied bestiality, penis bitten off, man hitting killer sheep with his own dismembered leg, anti-genetic research hippies, buckets of gore, and body parts. This was top fun and a great way to start the festival.

Frightfest should always start with a horror comedy like this, really gets things off to an enjoyable start. Great funny film!

Absolute corker of a film to start with. Just can't beat flying zombiefied sheep. Very entertaining. Had a great mix of comedy and horror. Some great scenes of bloody entrails and limbs being ripped off. Even the real sheep looked intimidating. You could say a love story of one man and his flossy friend!

The perfect start to the festival - good mix of comedy and gore, ticked all the right boxes.

How many sheep gags can you squeeze into one film?

This was one of the films I was really looking forward to, and I have to say it didn't disappoint. Loved the gore / comedy mix from start to finish and a prefect curtain-raiser for the festival.

Jonathon King was a great guy too, and was so happy the crowd mostly loved it..

Great fun, great start to the festival - exactly what I wanted for a perky start-as-you-mean-to-go-on vibe!

I especially appreciated the squeezy sheep in the goodie bags!
