On a vast New Zealand sheep station, a reckless genetic engineering experiment goes horribly wrong, turning sheep into bloodthirsty killers. So you now know the beginning and the obvious ending - it is only the journey that is left to experience. Filmed in the lower Wairarapa, near Wellington, this bloody thing is in the early Peter Jackson tradition and benefited by having Richard Taylor and the WETA Workshop people to do their magic on killer sheep.

SOUNDTRACKS VAULT - Link to MP3 samples of all titles

This vastly entertaining New Zealand horror comedy, made in 2006 but released in the US in 2007, featured a splendid score from Award-winning NZ composer Victoria Kelly. Suitably grand and intentionally overplayed, like the movie itself, Kelly?s score builds up from a subtle mysterioso to a rollicking, rhythmic score that really drives the story?s energy and humor without losing its pragmatic integrity. The music is prolific in the film, but it builds a continual mood of activity, propulsion, and fun. - from
