  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

2007 horror/comedy film directed by Jonathan King and produced by the New Zealand Film Commission.

Henry Oldfield and his brother Angus help their father raise sheep. A tasteless prank involving Henry being attacked by his older brother who's wearing the skin of Henry's beloved pet sheep Dudley followed by news of their father's death due to an accident results in Henry developing severe ovinophobia, fear of sheep, which causes him to leave New Zealand, never to return until his brother asks to buy Henry's share of the farm as Angus plans to use modern bioengineering methods to better sell his sheep. As Henry is shown about the farm, members of an Animal Wrongs Group, Grant and Experience, steal a sample from Angus's laboratory and accidentally release a bioengineered lamb who proceeds to infect the rest of the sheep to create hordes of bloodthirsty sheep.

Not to be confused with the Chris Farley/David Spade film.

Tropes used in Black Sheep (2006 film) include:
  • Attack of the Killer Whatever: Killer sheep. Really.
  • Animal Wrongs Group: WEKA. Although it sounds like Grant is the reason things keep going wrong.
  • Baa Bomb: Near the end of the movie, the infected sheep have been safely corraled, but there's not enough medicine to cure them all. Multiple sheep farting makes Henry realize they have an alternative way of ridding themselves of the sheep...
  • Black Sheep: At the beginning of the film, it's Angus, who apparently can't participate in the herding of the sheep due to a bad leg. Later, Henry's ovinophobia makes him the effective black sheep of the family due to being unable to help with the family business.
  • But You Screw One Goat!: Angus is revealed to have had carnal relations with the sheep on the farm. Bonus points for it being incestuous.
  • Granola Girl: Experience.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: The killer sheep are a mixture of zombies and lycanthropes.
  • Raising the Steaks: The killer sheep are essentially zombie (Type P) sheep who can turn humans into were-sheep.
  • Black Comedy Rape: While Henry is trying to cross the field of killer sheep disguised by a wool seat cover, one of the rams takes quite a bit of interest in his crawling form...
  • Sheep in Wolf's Clothing: Angus and Henry find that their infection lets them walk among the killer sheep unharmed.
  • Shout-Out: WETA did the special effects for the film. WEKA is the name of the Animal Wrongs Group in the film. Even better is that both are named after actual New Zealand animals.
  • Smoking Hot Sex: Angus locks himself, and the "prototype" of a new breed of sheep, in his study to protect them from man-eating sheep. When we next see him, he's smoking a cigarette in his underwear.
