About Cat Sick Blues

Suffering a mental breakdown after the death of his cat, introverted loner Ted convinces himself that in order to bring his beloved pet back to life, he needs nine human lives to sacrifice in its place. Constructing a cat costume, complete with mask and razor-sharp claws, Ted embarks on a murderous rampage, slashing his way through share houses, backpacker hostels and webcam chat rooms in a savage frenzy. As the butchery escalates, a twisted and bleak romance blossoms between Ted and Claire, a young woman he meets in a support group for recently bereaved pet owners.

Dave Jackson’s debut feature “is a balls-to-the-wall assault on the senses” ( that will be released as the first of Monster Pictures new Australian genre sub-label Fatal Visions – named after the infamous underground film zine of the late 80’s / early 90’s published by Fangoria scribe Michael Helms.



"The most original, unapologetic, and strangely affecting Australian horror movie since Bad Boy Bubby"

Cult Projections

"A wildly successful endeavour into the mind of the depraved. It’s unlike anything I have ever seen"
