If you saw the short film incarnation of Cat Sick Blues at Celluloid Screams 2013, you’d be forgiven for thinking that you’re mentally prepared for the feature version… think again…
After the death of his cat, introverted loner Ted suffers a breakdown and convinces himself that in order to bring his beloved kitty back from the dead, he needs nine human lives to sacrifice. Equipped with a cat costume complete with a mask and razor-sharp claws, Ted embarks on a savage rampage across the city, whilst developing a doomed romance with Claire, a young woman he meets at a group for recently bereaved pet owners.
Though absolutely not for the faint hearted, Cat Sick Blues is a one-of-a-kind disturbing gem the likes of which you’ve never seen before.
