Cat Sick Blues

Dave Jackson, 2015, Ausralia
English, 101′
Swiss premiere

As a consequence of his cat’s death, a man sinks into a depression and transforms himself into a serial killer wearing a red sweater, a razor-sharp-clawed paw and a feline mask with big cute eyes. Will his new romance with Claire, a young woman devastated after also losing her cat, bring him back to reason? At first glance “Cat Sick Blues” appears to be a silly slasher but reveals itself as a merciless gem. As an outrageously brutal and astonishingly trashy reaction to the trend of LOLcats and other memes, Dave Jackson’s film hits the audience where it really hurts.
