The Director’s Series 8: Nam Nai-Choi FINALE – The Cat

lao-mao-the-cat-1992-movie-poster

The grand finale to our LONG coverage of the unpredictable yet dependent Nam Nai-choi is here! The spotlight on the maker of social dramas, action adventure, gangster action, kangaroo action, rape revenge action, sex action, slime action and splatter action comes to a close as his filmography does as well. And we go out on a bang, hopefully a high as Nam Nai-choi revisits the legend of Wisely, adds b-movie fun, sci-fi, goo, gore and the ultimate battle between a space cat and the super-dog. Are you ready for The Cat from 1992?
