Monsoon-A-Day: The Night of a Thousand Cats

A Thousand Clowns is a 1965 comedy about an eccentric comedy writer who has to conform to societal norms in order to win legal custody of his nephew.

Think Big Daddy if Big Daddy was any good.

It also does not contain a single fucking clown.

House of a 1000 Corpses is a 2003 Horror film directed By Rob Zombie involving 2 couples getting kidnapped by the Firefly clan who are a Murderous, redneck family that spend the next 70 minutes torturing them till the credits roll.

It has less than 40 Corpses in the entire film.

It at least has a clown in it though.

The Night of a Thousand Cats doesn’t have much going for it but it at least delivers on it’s fucking title. There is 1000 cats in this fucking movie.

Hugo Stiglitz (No. Not the Nazi Killer) plays a playboy who seduces women with his cool hat and his cool yacht and his cool helicopter and then takes them back to his cool castle where he cuts off their heads and then feeds the rest to his cats. He also has an overweight man servant named Dorgo. Why he never feeds the fat guy to the cats instead of the hot women is never explained. Or why he’s feeding anyone to the cats. Or why he has fucking 1000 of them.

These questions are irrelevant. Because the real question you should ask yourself is “How much do i like shots of helicopters hovering above the ground, never landing and then flying away?” If the answer to that extremely specific question was–“Enough to border on fetish” this is the film for you.

The Night of a Thousand Cats is not a good film, in fact, it’s barely a film but unlike Reservoir Dogs (No Dogs) or A Clockwork Orange (No Oranges or Fruit anywhere) it at least delivers truth in advertising and for that, it’s a winner in my book*

*No it’s not. It’s a terrible film but less cats died during the making of this than The Adventures of Milo and Otis.

Probably.
