Availalbe in both 8mm and 16mm gauges. "I recommend the 8mm. print-and-tape version. "One of the prettiest and nicest uses of color I've seen since the UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG, which was almost an equally pointless film..." "A REAL SUPERCAT!... "... something like STREET OF BUGS. It was really shocking to me. There was a very terrible thing going on in the movie I thought." -- comments by the Saginaw 8 judges. "The acting of Georgecat in SCREAMING FISHES continues the great tradition of acting established by Rin Tin Tin in cinema in the 20's and brought to TV by the fly that appeared on the Johnny Carson show last year. And the original music composed by Mamacat, I really feel, is superior to anything by Scriabin."-- Jonas Mekas "This small world of animal, mineral and vegetable properties in effective color knows its bounds and does wonders within them." -- comment by The Refocus judge.
