Hell, why not? South Korea has given us everything from horror movies about evil, possessed shoes to evil, possessed dolls, to evil, possessed apartments. You get the idea. So why not a movie about evil, possibly possessed cats? I’m game, if just to see how silly it eventually gets. You know what I’d like to see, though? A movie about a woman who is possessed by a ghost, but as it turns out, the ghost is possessed by something else! Get it? A possession within a possession? Call me, South Korea! Until then, check out a teaser trailer and poster for Byeon Seung-wook’s “The Cat” (aka “Cats”) below.
So-yeun is an animal groomer who works in a pet shop. One day, she gets stuck with a Persian cat named Silky when its owner suddenly dies. From then on, So-yeun is constantly haunted by a bobbed hair girl with green cat-like eyes who turns her life turns into turmoil. So-yeun desperately seeks help from the people around, but no one listens to her.
The presence of the girl and the sound of Silky cries start to choke in around her life more and more. Not only that, people around So-yeun gets killed one by one. Soon, So-yeun comes face to face with the bobbed hair girl at the scene of a horrific death. So-yeun gets rid of Silky hoping her troubles will come to an end, but Silky keeps coming back to her like a boomerang.
Terrified she could be the next to die, So-yeun sets out to find out the identity of the girl with the help her dead friend ex-boyfriend, Jun-seok, who is a cop. Later, So-yeun finds out the truth to the tragic incident that took place in the past.
South Korea gets its claws on the film first this Summer.
