A very dark and morbid little short film.
22 October 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Catherine" is a Belgian film with an incredibly strange story. The little girl, Catherine, is bad luck with pets. Again and again, they die under her watchful care and it's therefore shocking that her cat actually survives...at least for a while! Again and again, she loses pets such as a dog, a fish and even an insect. So what makes the cat and other cats so special? And, how will the boy across the street figure into all this?

The film features a lot of animals getting killed...sometimes in rather grisly ways. It's not for young kids...even though the main character is a kid and the animations make it look like a kids film. Sick, creepy, weird...yet enjoyable.
