New Trailer + Poster for Crazy Japanese ‘Mad Cats’ Indie Sensation

Mad Cats Trailer

“It’s a drug that makes them violent.” A full official trailer has debuted for an indie film from Japan called Mad Cats, marking the feature directorial debut of Japanese filmmaker Reiki Tsuno. This first premiered at the 2023 Slamdance Film Festival, the alternative to Sundance that runs at the same time, at the start of the year (here’s the teaser). After playing there, it’s now set for a streaming release on a new service called Midnight Pulp. A crazy mix of comedy & action, Mad Cats tells the story of Taka, a shiftless young man, who sets off on a quest to find his missing brother Mune. Teaming up with his new friend Takezo and an edgy, mysterious young woman, Taka finds himself taking on a pack of vicious, pistol-packing monster cats who look like women determined to execute unscrupulous pet shop owners. This indie sensation stars Sho Mineo, Yuya Matsuura, Ayane, So Yamanaka, and Michael Aaron Stone. This is a whimsical trailer that nicely teases the wacky vibe of this one-of-a-kind modern Japanese flick. Something funky from Japan. // Continue Reading ›
