Cat Sick Blues (2015)
Review by Bradley Frohloff

5 / 10
This was a pretty tough movie to watch. The content is quite grim, bleak. On the plus side, it does have somewhat of an artistic flair to certain scenes and is looks decent for such a low budget venture. I'm not quite sure how to rate this movie, I feel I could enjoy it the second time around but I'm certainly in no hurry to watch it again any time in the near future.

However, if you enjoy fucked up movies, I'm sure you'll get a decent kick out of this one.
Cat Sick Blues (2015)
Review by Michael Mahoney

8 / 10
Australia has brought the horror genre some rather, shall we say interesting, entries. Cat Sick Blues isn't a very pleasant watch, as it often contains unsettling and uncomfortable content, but it is very well-made, and certainly possesses enough gore and interesting ideas to keep the film memorable.

If there's one big problem I have with the film, it's the somewhat lengthy dream sequence toward the end. I felt it wholly unnecessary, and while the film flirted with more fantastic ideas prior to that, I thought it was way over-the-top ridiculous. I just didn't care for that little segment whatsoever, and if that had just been cut, I personally would have given the film a higher rating.

Everything else, though, is decently on point. Playing the main character, Shain Denovan does a great job pretty much throughout, from the emotional detachment following the rape sequence to the scene where she realized she knew the killer (in a Biblical sense). She doesn't seem to be a big actress, which is a bit of a shame, as she did well here. Playing the unsettling killer, Matthew C. Vaughan also did pretty well, certainly gave off that very disturbed vibe. He looked silly in that mask and clothes far too small for him, but you'll likely not laugh for long.

There's a lot of great stuff in the film insofar as special effects and gore goes. With a couple of decapitations, multiple throat-slittings, a head getting utterly demolished and smashed in, and even someone being force-drunk blood, the movie has a lot going for it. If I had to choose a favorite scene of carnage, it'd be the slow-motion murder of the four girls in the hostel, all-the-while a smooth, electronic song by Mistabishi plays. The cinematography during this scene is just fantastic. The opening kills are great also, and really help set the tone of the tone.

And what a tone it is. The rape scene isn't necessarily graphic, but that wasn't an easy scene to watch. What was ever more difficult was the reaction videos to the leaked rape, which were utterly disgusting, and I can very easily see that type of thing happening in today's technologically-dedicated society. Also, just the callous killing of the cat, followed by throwing it out the window, was just harsh.

Speaking of harsh, I wanted to mention the music. While at times it was akin to many other films, playing somewhat accessible music (even if the content itself on screen wasn't accessible), it wasn't uncommon for discordant tones to pop up, some very harsh noises that certainly kept me on my toes. Even the song during the opening credits was intensely cacophonous, so kudos to whoever made the soundtrack.

Were it not for that dream sequence toward the end that just really turned me off, I think I'd have enjoyed this more. Worth noting that Cat Sick Blues is a movie I've seen once before, but I entirely forgot that disagreeable scene at the end, so when it popped up here, I was somewhat taken aback. I did enjoy the film more this time around, but it definitely has to be said that the content can sometimes be a bit much. If you're a fan of strange foreign slashers, I'd give this one a go. 7.5/10 (rounded up to 8/10 to fit site's format).
