OK, technically this movie review only needs one poster, and using two is overkill, but COME ON, "Killer Cat"!? How ccould I not include that poster too? It's just too awesome and illustrates perfectly why I've wanted to watch this movie since I was a kid. They both do. It's about a killer mutant cat! What's not to love?
I really have wanted to see this movie since it came out. I heard there was a movie about a killer mutant cat, and of course I wanted to watch it immediately. I love cats and I love horror movies, so this is a match made in heaven for me. Specifically, this movie is about a stray cat that has been subjected to mysterious experiments that escapes from a lab and sneaks aboard a yacht that is hosting a big party, and kitty causes mayhem.
The description us kind of misleading, the cat doesn't sneak aboard, some guests willingly take him with them (who thinks a cat would have a good time on a boat, you nitwits?) The boat is also full of some unsavory people who really deserve to be killed by a mutant cat, so I don't really feel sorry for them.
The whole movie has a cheesy 80s vibe which people might not like, but it made the movie more fun for me. It dies take an inordinate amount of time for anything to really happen, but even though the special effects aren't great, it was still cool seeing little mutant kitty kill the stupid characters. Of course the least annoying characters manage to grow on me, so I was even rooting for them after awhile. Overall, this movie isn't great or anything, but I had fun with it.
