We’ve written with great passion about the jellicle hellscape that is the 2019 Cats trailer. Lucky for us, some YouTube genius has capitalized on the feline frenzy with a new trailer for Stephen King’s Cats, a fake horror flick we truly wish was real.
Cut with clips from this year’s Pet Semetary remake and last year’s dark-horse horror flick A Quiet Place, among some other scary movies, the trailer imagines a world in which the pussies from Cats are fierce and dangerous, and “Memory” is less a ballad and more a portent of death and despair.
King has even tweeted his approval of the thing, which we hope—claws crossed!—means he’ll turn this mashup trash into the next hit Netflix miniseries.
I got nothin'.
