The Cat (1992)

  1. This action-packed science-fiction oddity comes from the same team that made STORY OF RICKY.

    SEE a revived corpse so taken with the sight of Gloria Yip in a slit skirt that its eyes literally pop out of their sockets!

    SEE the longest junk yard battle ever committed to film between a vicious black cat and a huge slobbering mastiff!

    SEE action director Philip Kwok trying his best to look like Arnold Schwarzenegger in THE TERMINATOR!

    SEE Christine Ng in a soaking wet see-through tennis blouse!

    SEE the monster called Star Killer that changes appearance is every other scene!

    SEE the obvious attempt to pad the running time of the movie by replaying 4 minutes of earlier scenes after the end titles!

    If you're looking for bizarre entertainment, try tracking down THE CAT.

    That does it....

    ...I'm going to have to track this one down!

    Sounds a great "beer and snacks" movie!:)
     
  3. DVD info

    The original Universe Laser DVD is unfortunately long discontinued, but a Chinese company called WA has recently released a new DVD of this very rough (but fun) "diamond". The WA version is nicely letterboxed with Dolby Digital 5.1 sound. The format is NTSC all-region.

    Unfortunately, the original Cantonese dialogue has been clumsily dubbed into Mandarin, but there are removable English sub-titles (which are often entertaining in themselves). The menus require some trial-and-error experimentation if you don't read Chinese.

    The only on-line retailer I've found that stocks the disc is HKFlix.com

    Good hunting!


    :D

    That scene has become one of the most notorious HK action film scenes ever. Only in Hong Kong would they even begin to dream of a kung fu fight between a cat and a dog.
