Dark Water is one of my favourite movies, and as far as I know it was the first of these "ghost with a grudge that randomly kills people" films that have been pouring out of Asia. The Cat is a pretty unashamed ripoff of Dark Water which should probably have annoyed me, but it was done well and managed to carry the same dark atmosphere.
The main girl is pretty, likable, and somewhat sympathetic. Her father has been institutionalised, she suffers from claustrophobia, and she works in a pet shop with a rather dysfunctional and mean owner. Yet she pushes on and still manages to find things that make her smile. The ghost is a little girl with green cat eyes who periodically launches herself at the screen making you scream out "ARGH! STOP DOING THAT!" Her story doesn't unfold quite as smoothly as it does in other films of this genre, but as always it is slow, sad, thoughtful, and perfect for a gloomy Sunday night. This is a Horror as it should be. Do not expect much cheer.
If someone copies your favourite album and the songs are good chances are you're still going to listen to it. If you liked some of the other Asian ghost stories that have come out you'll probably like this too.
