The importance of cats in horror cinema

Mark Harrison Oct 31, 2017

Want to enhance your horror movie? Make sure you sign up a cat...

This feature contains broad spoilers for several horror movies featuring cats, including Alien, Cat People, Drag Me To Hell, Fallen, A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night, Pet Sematary and The Voices.

The relationship between humans and cats over time has given way to a number of cultural impressions and outright superstitions. Ancient Egyptians associated them with gods. In the Middle Ages, they were linked with witches and killed en masse, which probably hastened the spread of the Black Plague through the rodent population. And in the modern day, it's interchangeably lucky or not if a black cat crosses your path.

Like anything with such a wide array of symbolic links, movies have presented cats as characters in different ways over the years. It's their abiding association with the supernatural – whether as an omen

Highlights from the ‘Shaun of the Dead’ Fan Event with Edgar Wright

The ‘horror comedy’ tends to be the kiss of death for any studio or filmmaker. For some reason – there’s a belief that people just don’t want to pay and see these movies… which, to be fair, may be true (See the less-than-spectacular financial returns of Scout’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse or The Cabin in the Woods or Drag Me to Hell…) Even companies that make horror-comedies today are reticent to label them such: the horror-comedy Happy Death Day was marketed as ‘horror-fun’, lest anyone, even for a second, think about calling …

Halloween 2017: Hail to a King – The Sam Raimi Double Feature – The Evil Dead and Drag Me To Hell

[To get you into the spooky spirit, the Daily Dead team is spotlighting double features that we think would be fun to watch this Halloween season. Keep an eye on Daily Dead for more double feature recommendations, and check here for our previous Halloween 2017 coverage.]

Carpenter. Romero. Craven. Argento. Hooper. These names are synonymous with the horror community. They are royalty in the realms of horror fandom. The path that these filmmakers paved is undeniable, with their work serving as influence for the future generations of filmmakers. However, there is one name that seems to hold more regard with the passing of time. Sam Raimi’s catalog of horror films may be small, but the content he has produced is a unique blend of genre characteristics that compose an identifiable watermark for the director, all while also paying respect to the horror that paved the way before his work.

Analyzing the furthest spectrums of the director’s work displays why Mr. Raimi should be considered a master of the craft of horror. From the now perennial film that launched the director’s career, The Evil Dead, to the most recent return to the genre that

61st BFI London Film Festival Review – Veronica (2017)

Veronica, 2017.

Directed by Paco Plaza.

Starring Sandra Escacena, Bruna Gonzalez, and Claudia Pacer.

Synopsis:

Madrid, 1991. A teen girl finds herself besieged by an evil supernatural force after she played Ouija with two classmates.

In 2007 Spanish director Paco Plaza obliterated audiences’ nerves with found-footage zombie horror Rec. Co-directed by Jaume Balaguero the movie tore through an increasingly ailing genre with a firm dose of rigorous suspense and explosively gory nastiness as a camera crew accompanying a Madrid firefighting team discover something horrifying lurking in a Madrid apartment block.

Fittingly enough for a country so consumed and burdened by the ghosts of its recent past, Spain has taken the charge in the last decade’s surge of ghostly horror, from The Orphanage to the underrated Julia’s Eyes and beyond. And more than a decade after his breakout hit Plaza himself has gone it alone with Veronica, which purports to take as

Exclusive: ‘SuperMansion: Drag Me to Halloween’ Trailer Reveals the Holiday Horror Special

Crackle's animated comedy series SuperMansion is one of the most unflinching, equal opportunity offenders out there, and I say that with the highest possible praise.

The name itself is a fantastic title on its own, but it's also a nod to Sam Raimi's horror film Drag Me to Hell. Just how much influence (if any) from that flick makes its way into this special remains to be seen, but …

‘Ghost House’ Review

Stars: Scout Taylor-Compton, James Landry Hébert, Mark Boone Junior, Michael S. New, Elana Krausz, Kevin Ragsdale, Russell Geoffrey Banks, Rich Lee Gray, Katrina Grey | Written by Rich Ragsdale, Kevin O’Sullivan, Jason Chase Tyrrell | Directed by Rich Ragsdale

Holidaying in Bangkok, Thailand, a loved-up young American couple come a cropper when they befriend a pair of British guys at their hotel. Plied with booze and compliments, they’re driven out into the woodlands, and Julie (Taylor-Compton) is tricked into stealing a symbolic artefact from the titular ‘ghost house’. What happens in Bangkok stays in Bangkok, right? Well, cursed by a furious spirit, now Julie might never leave at all…

The Thai flavour gives what is otherwise a fairly conventional ghost story a little extra spice. While there are no major surprises in the setup, scares or narrative, Ghost House makes the most of its Bangkok setting, mining the old streets
