This time out it’s off to Korea for our Halloween movie festival and a look at the recent horror film “The Cat: Eyes that See Death” aka “고양이 : 죽음을 보는 두 개의 눈”. Hmmmm?? A haunted ghost story…. about cats? What sort of self respecting “Catgirl Princess” would I be if I ever let myself miss this one? 😉
Our synopsis goes as follows: “So-yeon (Park Min-yeong), is a pet groomer who suffers from claustrophobia stemming from a childhood experience. One day, one of So-yeon’s customers dies while on an elevator, leaving her cat Bi-dan behind. The mystery of who killed the woman on the elevator is unknown, and the cat is the only witness. As the police begin their investigation, they ask So-yeon to take care of Bi-dan. But something strange happens to So-yeon from the day she brings Bi-dan home.
So-yeon starts having vivid and disturbing nightmares in which she sees a little girl who keeps coming back to haunt her dreams. Afraid and unsure of just what this might mean, So-yeon starts investigating the mystery of the cat and the death of its owner just as her closest friend, who has also recently gotten a cat, suddenly dies under eerie circumstances. Just what is the strange “curse of the cat”? And… will she be it’s next victim?”
I’ve already seen the Trailer.. and read plenty of reviews by others, including one by our good friend Elpeevio over at his Blog, Things Fall Apart… and for the most part, the feelings seem mixed on this one. Still.. the Koreans always do a class act with their films and even the worst ones are still worth a look, so naturally this curious kitten just has to take a peek for herself….
Wanna know if this kitty is worth a watch for you as well? Or… should it be spayed, neutered, and dropped off at the pound to be put mercifully to sleep? Still wanna know? Why then all you have to do is “Read On” and find out all the details for yourself…
