Disgusting, repulsive , morally reprehensible
22 September 2018 | by Tile99See all my reviews

Anyone who makes a documentary about such a horrific, inhumane, repulsive, morally reprehensible act is condoning it and might as well have done it themselves. There SHOULD BE a lot of fuss made about this film and the footage which inspired it because it's horrific! That this wasn't immediately seen as a horrific crime is a sad statement on the world we live in and humanity itself. Does no one see that these three men, lead by Jesse Power, are deranged and a serious threat to society at large? It's a matter of time before they do it again to another animal or a person. They are seriously mentally disturbed and should be locked away where they can't do this again. Where is the human decency and compassion for an innocent, helpless, defenseless, trusting animal which was probably someone's pet?! Does no one see that these three men are potential psychopaths? For the judge to say that 'there are worse ways for a cat to die', and for the gallery owners to say 'who are they to say what is or isn't art', what kind of world do we live in? And for a fellow reviewer to say that the act itself was a 'tad bit much', that's a smug, arrogant SOB. Anyone who's actually interested in viewing this documentary or the original footage is probably harboring sick, demented, twisted tendencies and is dangerous. That includes the people who made this documentary. The inhumanity is astounding! May Jesse Powers and his two accomplices perish in the same horrifying, brutal way they killed that poor defenseless, helpless cat - skinned alive, disemboweled with dental tools and eyes gauged out - because that's exactly what they deserve. Shame on you, Toronto!!!
