Yao Mao Zhuan 妖猫传 also known as Legend of the Cat Demon is a Chen Kai Ge film adapted from Japanese writer Yumemakura Baku's 夢枕 獏 series of fantasy novels titled Samon Kukai Tou no Kuni nite Oni to Utagesu.
Due to the breadth of the source material, the movie focuses on the chapters surrounding the demon cat and it begins with the death of Yang Gui Fei of the Tang Dynasty. A monk and poet subsequently join hands to uncover the mysteries behind the chilling deaths.
It is an ambitious project boasting the biggest Chinese-Japanese collaborations to date starring Sometani Shota, Huang Xuan (Hunter), Kitty Zhang Yuqi and Liu Hao Ran (Nirvana in Fire 2). More names have been added and it includes Qin Hai, Hiroshi Abe, Oho Ou Hao, and Crystal Zhang Tian Ai.
