Film4 FrightFest is almost upon us, and for any UK-based horror fan (especially those based in London), this is the biggest highlight of the year.
Featuring 25 films and lots of assorted special treats (including the first glimpse of Neil Marshall's Doomsday), Film4 FrightFest 07 looks set to be a great event, not least of all for the opening film - the great new horror comedy from New Zealand - Black Sheep.
Thanks to Icon, the film's distributors, we have two free tickets to give away to the UK premiere screening of this film.
To stand a chance of winning, simply answer the question below, enter your name and email address and press submit.
The competition will close on August 21st and we will draw the winner at random on that day. Unfortunately, this competition is only open to people living in the UK and Eire who are over the age of 18. The prize is for the tickets only, and not, unfortunately, for travel or accommodation.

Terrified of sheep and dosed up on therapy, Henry Oldfield (Nathan Meister) returns to his familyís farm to sell out to his older brother Angus (Peter Feeney), unaware that something baaaad is going on: Angusí reckless genetic engineering program.
When a pair of inept environmental activists release a mutant lamb from Angusí laboratory onto the farm, thousands of sheep are turned into bloodthirsty predators. Along with farmhand Tucker (Tammy Davis) and greenie girl Experience (Danielle Mason), Henry finds himself stranded deep on the farm as his worst nightmare comes to life.
Battling their way to safety the intrepid trio discover thereís worse to come: one bite from an infected sheep seems to have alarming effect on those bitten...
With Angus acting suspiciously sheepish, a delegation of international investors gathering at the homestead and a ravenous flock descending from the hills, Henry must find the farmer within to wrest control of the farm from his monstrous brother, defeat an ovine invasion and save New Zealandís pastures green.
8th Jun 04 The film opens with a very similar voiceover narration to the original (see Trivia) but with different footage as we tour the furnace room, all fingernail scratches and blood-clotted hair, of the Hewitt residence.
