Hell, I haven't seen that in years!

6 years to be exact!

An oldie, but certainly a goodie. And by goodie, I mean 'restless dreams.'

It's like a Guy Maddin monster movie. Awesome.

That was really fun.

The Human Centipede made me snicker. The Cat With Hands made me check to make sure the doors were locked.

All cats do this? Don't you know?

I will never sleep again.

Well-done, but quite frankly the most horrifying thing about it is the old guy's teeth.

So, is this screened often at the furry conventions?

OK, I can live with the suspense of not knowing what happens in the rest of this. I believe the technical term is "chickening out"? I am such a wuss.

This was totally creepy! I keep looking over my shoulder. Thanks.

Crap. I'm alone, it's getting dark, and two cats are staring at me.

Must not click.

sort of saw it coming, but friggin' creepy nonetheless. Thanks for posting this since I didn't catch it the first time around.

Last night as I slumbered I had a strange dream,
One that seemed to bring distant friends near,
I dreamt of the faces of people I know,
And I woke with a heart full of cheer.

Odd we haven't heard from a mod about it being a double. What's the matter? Cat got your tongue?

Cat got your tongue?

Ha. The original location of the movie seems to be down now—maybe they thought we all needed our pants scared off anew? (I went back and watched it. I'm not too afraid of my cats, but I have been giving my husband the side-eye every time he makes a sudden noise.)

That was terrific!

Wow, haven't seen this in years. Thanks for the refresher!

I originally saw this at Telluride. Guillermo del Toro brought it to show in front of "The Devil's Backbone". Between the two, I did not sleep well that night.

Cats just should not have hands. There is a very good reason for this, and now we know what it is.

Wow, a cat who could drive a car!

This is one of the more creepy things I've ever seen in my life.

Robert Morgan is great. The Separation is also worth your time.

So, right after the short ended my cat appeared at the door...
