Bad kitty!
26 February 2019 | by Foreverisacastironmess123See all my reviews

Go for it honey, save your daughter from the terrible kitty cat, stuff that vent with those pillows, swing that jug of water with all your might before it's too late! Whoa, this film was so very stupid!!! Some flicks just make you want to roll your eyes and go "Really? That's what you're going with??" And this was a very slightly horror-tinged drama thriller that had one of the most instantly ludicrous premises I ever heard of - no freaking way that could've worked in any movie in a million years, you cannot film cats that way, they are not dogs, they do not do tricks or act a certain way on command, on camera they are only good for being adorable and hilarious! Only the lead cat looked a little scary close up because it had such a grouchy hissing face and was all mangy, in fact it was the spitting image of the famous cat from Pet Sematary, if I didn't know any better I'd say that Church somehow survived his lethal injection and carried on his evil feline ways! Could this movie be an unofficial spin-off?! The film mostly played like a very poor TV drama about a family on the rocks because the wife thought the husband was having an affair with his latest client who is her sister as they were moving into a nice country house - oh and the house had recently become the territory of a psychotic super-Tom!!! The film played it all completely straight and the more it was trying to press that this was meant to be a very scary and serious situation in a legitimate horror movie, it made me want to laugh more! The people are so white-bread, saccharine and boring to look at and listen to including the snivelling annoying little actress of a child, that you'll soon be hoping to see the ravenous cat horde get them all and chew the marrow from their bones! I so could not take it seriously for a moment, it was just too goofy! Its worth at least one watch if you're enticed by the promise of uncovering some obscure movie cheese, and it is quite fun if you watch it only for the great laughs! Me-ouch!! X
