Sunday Shorts: The Cat with Hands

Last week, I teased a great interview for this Sunday, but last minute logistical issues have sadly pushed that back a bit. Not to worry, however — as I have an excellent short to share in The Cat With Hands, an excellent live-action/animated horror jaunt. It will leave you with something I’ve known all along — cats are not to be trusted; particularly those with, you know… hands.

THE CAT WITH HANDS (2001)

Written/Directed/Animated by: Robert Morgan

Starring: Livy Armstrong, Daniel Hogwood, Victoria Hays

Produced by: Sylvie Bringas

Morgan has been the recipient of over twenty awards for his short films, and has a beautifully creepy body of work under his belt. Raised near Broadmoor Hospital, a high-security psychiatric ward that helped inspire some of the dark themes of his future work, a nd noting 1958’s Fiend Without a Face as one of his favorite movies, it’s reasonably clear that the UK native was built to have an off-kilter style custom made for horror.

Recently, Morgan has been moving away from animated shorts and toward live-action feature films.

Here is hoping he can take the unique vision and atmosphere of fun stuff like The Cat With Hands and fully flesh them out into a feature length format. That would certainly be a rewarding experience for prospective theatergoers.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend — and perhaps put the cat out tonight instead of letting it sleep at the foot of your bed. Just an idea…

Until next time, this has been your Sunday Shorts.
