Nick (Nicholas Tana) loves his cat Angel - not in a weird way, either,
just like people love their animals, especially cute ones. And Angel loves
him back it seems - which might be a bit rarer in cats, but not totally
unusual. But things get out of hands when Angel attacks Nick's girlfriend
Lisa (Lisa Younger) when she tries to get intimate with him - which of
course results in a breakup ... and her threatening to sue him. From here
on, Angel gets more and more violent and erratic, and before long, Nick
figures there's something wrong with her, and he tries all sorts of things
to straighten out things, from a pet psychologist (Nina Kate) and a
dominatrix (Nina Hartley) to a couple of priests (Doug Jones, Bill Oberst
jr) for an exorcism, but nothing seems to work - and Nick's best friend
and neighbour Adam (Adam Rucho), who has the best intetions but gets
everything wrong, is no help at all. The one thing Nick does find out
though is that Angel might be possessed by a former lover, Rosemary, he
has completely forgotten, but who might have been an actual witch. And
what helps better against a cursed cat than a couple of gypsy mediums
(Lynn Lowry, Kelli Maroney)? But they may actually cause more problems
than they solve ...
Lee Meriwether plays Nick's grandmother, Adrienne
Barbeau Rosemary's mother, while Rosemary herself is played by Dale
Midkiff in a rather hilarious musical number.
Ok, the concept
of a cute housecat causing murder and mayhem in a horror movie might sound
a bit far-fetched (even though cats can be the greatest assholes at times
- which they have every right to), but this actually is a genre comedy of
the anything-goes variety - and in that context it works
beautifully, especially since the movie builds wilder and wilder sequences
on its premise and fills it to the brim with jokes, puns, grotesque bits
and the like, often of the (intentionally) so-bad-they're-good variety. Of
course, this is facilitated by a directorial effort that understands the
horror genre and a cast that't not only solid but also mouth-watering for
all horror fans due to the sheer number of fan favourites.
if you like your horror funny or your jokes bloody, then this one's for
