Legend of the Cat Demon (Movie)

Yao Mao Zhuang Chinese film

Legend of the Cat Demon 妖猫传 is a Chen Kai Ge film adapted from the series of fantasy novels Samon Kukai Tou no Kuni nite Oni to Utagesu by Japanese writer Yumemakura Baku's 夢枕 獏 . The plot is also inspired by the literary poem Chang Hen Ge 长恨歌 which explores the life of Yang Gui Fei, the king's most beloved consort and also one of the Four Great Beauties in Ancient China. 

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 the Yang Gui Fei of the Tang Dynasty. A monk from Japan travels to Tang seeking buddhist scriptures. The monk and a poet subsequently join hands to uncover the mysteries behind the chilling deaths which leads them to the demon cat. 

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 to include Qin Hao, Hiroshi Abe, Oho Ou Hao, and Crystal Zhang Tian Ai

Release Date: December 22, 2017

  1. This cat doesn't look like really demonic in the last picture. Rather your regular plump kitty.

  2. If he is, he is less than impressive. He looks like my own fatty cat.

    Well, I take the opportunity to tell you that I really enjoy your hard work.
    Recently I have fallen into Chinese fantasy dramas and your blog is a mine of information.
    I am happily following your recommendation and guidance and your tops are very useful, otherwise I would not know where to begin.

    Thank you very much to share your hobby (or passion) with us. Your efforts are not waste!
