Pussycake wastes no time in getting you right into the story. Opening with the son of a missing scientist, trying to find out just where his father has gone (there are paper clippings mentioning dimensional travel). Unbeknownst to his mother, the boy has created a portal to try and bring his dad back. It is successful but his father comes back changed and he has brought something else, something alien back with him. Meanwhile across town the band Pussycake are wrapping up their at a local club and looking to go onto the next venue. Unfortunately they breakdown and find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time.
This film has been compared to The Evil Dead but this is mainly due to the gore factor which is a little misleading because whilst Pussycake is certainly gooey and gory, it isn’t quite at Evil Dead levels. What is quite different about Pussycake is that it mostly takes place during the day in bright sunshine, a nice change and seeing the gore in this light for some reason makes a bit more disgusting.
Director Pablo Parés knows what he is doing, shooting around some of the gore shots that required a bit more of a budget to show and then in other shots you get the full on experience. Managing to make things thrilling regardless of the time of day and also keeping the tone of the film consistent.
A film that doesn’t take itself too seriously and is fun even when thing aren’t making a hell of a lot of sense. Pussycake should find an audience that like this kind of gross out spectacle, ladies kicking ass and aficionados of on screen vomiting.
Pussycake is now available on Screambox TV.
