There is a reason for the hysteria and mystique surrounding THE CAT. And it's called genius.
Never have I seen a film matched in shock, terror, writing, or performances. This isn't a horror movie. The film itself is both a moving and terrifying drama that takes a realistic look at what would actually happen if a cat called Silky who belongs to a plump woman who was found dead in the lift to her apartment. Seung-wook Byeon's script is amazing, bringing depth to the characters, and presenting the mystery of faith that they all deal with. Is the feline possessed? Is it insane? And most importantly, Is there a God? In the course of two hours, we see a sweet and innocent young girl become a cross victim to a murderous creature. We see a successful actress overcome skepticism to save her daughter, and we see a brilliant psychiatrist struggle with his devotion to God.
THE CAT presents to us the mystery of faith in it's most raw form--the battle of good and evil. It is an incomparable masterpiece of film, done without the aid of computers and special effects. It relies on story and performances to give us a marvelous and terrifying piece of work. In the end, it makes us ask ourselves what we believe, and keeps us wondering and shuddering at exactally what might be out there.
