Criticker’s Facebook Application

At long last, we’d like to introduce Criticker’s brand-new Facebook Application.

Add this application to your Facebook account, and you’ll be able to show off your recently ranked films to the world from your profile. You’ll also be able to keep track of friend’s rankings (if they’ve also installed the app) and get recommendations on new releases — directly from Facebook!

It might not need said at this point, but if you find any problems, please let us know by sending an email to info-at-criticker.com, or leaving a comment here. The application is brand new, and we don’t have a huge testing team (or… any testing team, really), so if you discover an error, tell us and we’ll try and fix it as soon as we can.

Here’s the application page:

Sheep Terror

You might be aware that Criticker is based in rural, western Ireland. Trailers for the New Zealand Horror Movie “Black Sheep” have begun showing on TV here … and we are <i>so</i> going to see it. Even though, I’ll probably never again set foot on a field with sheep.

A few Criticker users have seen it already… pretty mixed opinions. Here are some mini reviews:


This is the funniest movie I have seen all year. Think of a cross between the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Watership Down. The SFX were awesome, and completely over the top. The cute little sheep fetus was my favourite character, closely followed by Oliver Driver. This film is almost like an homage to one of Jackson’s first movies Brain Dead ( A young man’s mother is bitten by a Sumatran rat-monkey.


Certainly some funny and horrific bits, not to mention a new type of enemy for the horror genre (seriously, who’s afraid of sheep?). It does have some bits that drag and some jokes that fall flat. It’s worth watching if you’re into the horror/comedy genre. Personally I’d recommend Slither or Ginger Snaps over this though.


sheeps are funny looking creatures but the movie is really unimaginative and downright tedious
