One of the most overused clichés in horror movie history is the cheap jump-scare caused by a CAT. So I'm shocked that I haven't seen a video montage of these before now.
Thankfully, it has arrived. It's about three minutes long, and it's brilliantly titled, "It's Just a Cat". ( This is such a popular gag, a lot of these aren't even horror movies. Also: WARNING!!! This clip contains a few swear words.)
