Where there’s killer pussy there’s…gay dudes and drag queens?

Written and directed by its star, Nicholas Tana, campy indie Hell’s Kitty is a bit of a love letter to people with cunty kitties and an appreciation for “pussy” humor. And more importantly, it is loaded with meta goodies for diehard horror lovers.

It was definitely the intro music that got me going right away—a take on satanic choral music…with the chorus actually chant-singing “meow.” Pawesome.

The premise is about this single guy who lives in an apartment with his bitchy cat, which attacks every woman he brings home, leaving them a bloody mess. His best buddy from downstairs convinces him the cat is possessed and needs to be exorcised.

The goofy humor is cute, funny, and crass at first, but somewhere around the 35-minute mark, it starts to fall flat, which was my cue to say “this movie should have been edited by about 20 minutes.” I think in large part that’s due to the fact that this was originally a Webseries. It actually feels like little vignettes linked together at times, rather than a single, flowing narrative, with nothing significant happening to move the plot forward beyond a cycle of talking and horror dream sequences. The dream sequences are usually filled with throwbacks to older horror films, which is fun enough for sure, but it starts to feel like a novelty that keeps the film from ever getting to the point.

Even so, every well-versed horror nut should stick with it, because Tana drowns us in non-dream 80s horror references as he calls in a revolving door of psychics, mediums, and men of the cloth played by horror and pop culture icons old and new to try to rid his pussy of its evil.

But who will purge the demon in a swirl of cheesy 80s-style special effects…and who will become Purina Fancy Feast?Will it be:

Lee Meriwether
horror kings Bill Oberst, Jr. And Doug Jones

porn queen Nina Hartley, who doesn’t age

80s horror queens Adrienne Barbeau, Lynn Lowry, or Kelli Maroney
contemporary scream queens Elissa Dowling or Victoria De Mare
Creep Creepersin as a Killer Klown from Outer Space

the ORIGINAL Isaac and Malachai from Children of the Corn

or Michael Berryman…

Adding to the fun, things take a gay turn when the film suddenly turns black and white (it’s gay and horror related).

Plus, hot Pet Sematary daddy Dale Midkiff even makes an appearance, doing a Rocky Horror drag number…
