Just in time for Halloween I give you two unconventional horror flicks for this holiday season.

First selection is May, the story of an awkward, shy girl and her sewing machine. May’s only wish in life is to make new friends. When her social skills fall flat, the time comes when she must rely on her crafty talents to make the perfect friend. Stitch-stitch.

Black Sheep; produced by Phillipa Campbell; written and directed by Jonathan King
Genius Products [2007]

Next up is Black Sheep, a horror/comedy about the dangers of animal husbandry and genetic engineering. Yes, we’re talking killer sheep. Anything with teeth and a killer appetite can be horrific, even baby lambs. It’s off-beat, way off-color and covered in gobs of blood, with the occasional environmental message. You’ve just got to love those New Zealanders and the special effects wizards of the WETA workshop.

Enjoy and Happy Halloween.
