'Don't F*ck With Cats' Review
By: Gino Gallo
Most of us spend more time scrolling through Netflix than actually deciding what to watch. Let me do you a favor, when you come across "Don't F*3ck With Cats," stop scrolling.
I can guarantee you despite whether you love it or hate it, you will be absolutely glued to it. If you have to be at work at midnight and you start watching this at 11 o'clock, you're either going to be calling in sick or showing up about two and a half hours late.
I completely understand the fear of seeing videos of animals being killed. Frankly, not many people love animals as much as I do (Mike Vick should of gotten a life sentence in my eyes). So, let me reassure you. You'll be given ample time to close your eyes before anyone of those videos play and the show does a decent job of hiding the most graphic moments on its own. Trust me when I tell you, you can make it through this safely without seeing one Animal being tortured or killed. So, don't let that stop you.
If you're reading from the WeWatchedAMovie website there's a tremendous chance you're a horror fan. This documentary is a real life horror movie that puts that 'Ted Bundy Files' documentary shit to shame. Through my own personal research I've found that people who are obsessed with horror usually have two things in common. Horror movie fans are typically in it for the "safe" adrenaline rush. A large amount of us usually suffer from some form of anxiety brought on by extremely creative minds. So, I think it's safe to say many of us often come up with ideas throughout our days for movies, short stories, ect.
I promise you, none of us, in our wildest dreams could of come up with a story so wild. The most fucked up part? This is completely true.
It is almost impossible to give a clear plot synopsis without spoiling things, but here is an attempt. A sadistic man puts up a video of himself killing cats. Now, a group of Facebook and internet vigilantes begin the hunt to track him down. The research and cross referencing done by this Facebook group is so incredible it's borderline scary. These people are so determined and intelligent it's like watching the FBI track down somebody on their most wanted list.
We're so bogged down and quick to label a badass as the big bad guy who walks into the room with the tattoos and the gun hanging from his hip like Arnold or Stallone. Yet, the biggest badass I've seen in years is this little computer nerd named John Green. His research and intuition is so mind blowing it will leave you floored. The leader of the group, a female ( self proclaimed) computer nerd is bad as fuck in her own right.
The cat and mouse game is out of this world as this mysterious little deviant keeps leaving clues and the Facebook vigilanties keeps finding ways to make him pay for them. Furthermore, despite these people warning the police this guy is dangerous and that his insidious mind grows darker, their plea's are ignored. Eventually, this lunatic moves on to killing humans.
Once the group finally locates his name it turns into a massive man hunt all over North America and even into Europe. Unfortunately this guy although seemingly fairly simple minded, is extremely intelligent and just as elusive as he is insane. There are multiple twists and turns that will leave you with nothing to say except "Holy Shit!" with two scenes in particular really hit home. Do yourself a favor and check out 'Don't F*3ck With Cats!".
