If I had nine lives, I just lost eight of them to boredom...
20 February 2014 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

As much as I enjoy Asian horror movies, then it was really difficult to get into the mood while watching "The Cat", especially because it was anything but as captivating as I had initially hoped.

"The Cat" ("Go-hyang-i: Jook-eum-eul Bo-neun Doo Gae-eui Noon") is not like the standard typical Asian horror movies, and as such then it is a fresh breath of air in the genre. However, when that is said, it should also be said that the storyline in "The Cat" failed to be a captivating and interesting one, which ultimately lead to a less than mediocre movie experience.

The acting in the movie was good, and people were doing good jobs with their given roles, they just didn't have a fulfilling script to work with. And the effects were good as well, which worked in favor of the movie.

There weren't any scary moments throughout the movie, unless you are Asian of course, to which the standards of what is to be considered scary is significantly different from Western standards. And I must admit that I found it progressively harder and harder to keep attention to the movie, because the story was drifting and it lacked conviction and allure.

All in all, then "The Cat" scores a mere 4 out of 10 stars from me. There are far better Asian horror movies available. And for a Korean horror movie, then "The Cat" is well below the standards of what is to be expected from the Korean horror genre.
