The violence of the lambs!

Isn't that a great tagline?

It's on the quirky horror flick "Black Sheep." I just caught the trailer on a disk of "1408."

"1408" is OK, a narrow but effective story starring a slightly miscast John Cusack. But the trailer for "Black Sheep" is freakin' hilarious.

I have to see this piece of New Zealand schlock about murderous mutant sheep. It looks so campy, it was like some of those great fake trailers on "Gindhouse."

Aaaaah... I missed that trailer! I'm definitely going to have to go back and check it out.

As for 1408... I'm a huge King fan. Well, of his novels that is. Nary a single one of his stories have been effectively translated to the big screen. "Shawshank Redemption" and "Stand By Me" are perhaps the two best, and they're two of his east "scary" stories.

"The Stand" was a somewhat descent mini-series attempt, but nowhere near as good as it should have been (for what I feel is his best work).

But 1408 felt too much like "The Shining." It was OK, but I think Cusak, for being the cynic haunted house debunker that he was supposed to be playing, turned and lost his mind waaaaaaaay too fast to be convincing.

Yet another King story-to-movie failure. Oh well...

Has anyone seen this film yet? I was going to go see it on cinema but I think I will wait for it come out on DVD!
