Hell's Kitty Creator Nicholas Tana Chats About a Possessed PussyKeeping our horror/comedy web series coverage rolling (see today’s earlier update on Zombie Family here), this writer chatted with Hell’s Kitty creator Nicholas Tana in order to get the lowdown on his possessed pussy project. Read on for info, stills and Episode 1!

Revolving around a Hollywood writer (portrayed by Tana) whose domesticated feline Angel turns his life into a living hell, Hell’s Kitty was created by producer Denise Acosta and actor, producer, composer, writer and director Tana. Filmed in Hollywood, CA (more specifically, in Tana’s 1920’s Hollywood apartment, utilizing LA Film School students and equipment and Tana’s actual cat ‘Angel’), the duo’s purpose in producing Hell’s Kitty was to combine their mutual zeal for horror with their love for animals, in order to promote non-profit charities such as Fixnation, Much Love Animal Rescue, and Actors and Others for Animals.

A noble idea, and one which has attracted the talents of some notable horror celebrities.

“Lee Meriwether (“Batman”), Nina Hartley (Boogie Nights) and Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes) have made guest appearances,” Tana told us of some of the talent which appear in the first eight episodes of the planned thirteen of Hell’s Kitty, which are now on-line at YouTube (see the first episode, “Cujo Cat,” below).

As for who horror fans can expect in the final five episodes of season one, Hostel and Hostel: Part II’s Barbara Nedeljakova and The Human Centipede’s Ashley C. Williams make appearances as well.

Synopsis:
Hell’s Kitty is a comedy-horror web series based on true-life events surrounding Nick, a Hollywood writer, whose love life is jeopardized by his hellacious cat named Angel. People believe Angel is a devil. Even Nick’s best friend and neighbor, Adam (movie extra and slacker), is convinced that Angel needs to be exorcised. But Nick adores his cat and defends her despite all the obvious and ominous warnings. There are other problems besides Nick’s possessed pussy. Nick never gets any sleep because the downstairs neighbor, a nameless recluse and horror movie makeup artist, stays up all night making strange noises and leaving traces of blood in the hallway. Worse, Angel scratches Nick’s neighbor, Lisa, a girl Nick once dated, and Lisa is threatening to sue. But as strange supernatural events take place and people start disappearing, Nick must do something to prevent further catastrophes before his life becomes a living hell.

Chatting with Tana, he told us of his inspiration for Hell’s Kitty, “True events! Elements of the series are reenactments of many dates that I had with different women who all fell prey to my cat’s often demonic possessiveness. I thought it would be funny to make a web series about it, after talking to other cat owners who have shared similar experiences. I also thought it would be fun to have a show about a cat. There isn’t anything out there quite like Hell’s Kitty, and as far as I know there never has been. So I loved that it was so original of an idea. Lastly, I thought if I’m doing this, let me combine my love of animals with my passion to make entertaining shows, and use it as a way to help promote animal organizations that I care about.”

As for producing a series with a cat as its star, we couldn’t help but ask Tana how easy it is to work with the animal.

“Surprisingly, it was easy at first,” he replied.

“She would take her mark when needed, and there’s certainly no problem getting her to scratch people, especially if they get too close to me,” Tana expounded. “However, it can be challenging, too. I look at Angel in much the same way I might view a major diva actress; she wants what she wants, and when it comes to directing her, I take what I can get. I’m just glad Lee Meriwether, who played ‘Catwoman’ in the original “Batman” series, didn’t sue me after Angel made her bleed while doing a scene with her. Instead, being the real professional that she is, she played through it, wiping her blood on a collector’s edition Catwoman comic book, which we used for her scene. We hope to auction that comic off to raise money for some of our non-profit partners.”

“The way the show keeps attracting quality talent from our production team to our producing team to the many talented actors has been really satisfying,” Tana continued. “Everyone jumping on board to become a part of the magic that has become Hell’s Kitty simply because they realize that we have a good thing going. Robert Altman’s son, Robert Reed Altman, shot our last episode! Our crew and those who jump on board are like family. Our sound designer was a fan of the show before joining our team; he lives in Germany! So, we expect Hell’s Kitty to continue to resonate around the world. It’s exciting to see the episodes keep getting better, too. And the opportunity to parody lots of horror movies, and even better, to get the stars from those films to do special guest appearances! It’s an honor and a fantasy to get to pick my favorite classic films and go after the talent from them and actually have them as part of the series. The series is sexy, too. Cats are sexy. The women on the show are sexy. Ashley C. Williams and Barbara Nedeljakova are set to appear in a threesome gone bad because of Angel, everyone’s favorite killer feline and the real star of Hell’s Kitty, in the last scene of the first season. It’s going to be a bloody good one.”

As for the future of Hell’s Kitty, “I am just now shopping it around to key people in entertainment,” said Tana. “I think it would make a great TV show. I had a great meeting with Andy Shapiro from Machinima just last Monday. Soon I plan to start taking it to some of the networks. I think Comedy Central and FOX are just a few that might take a real interest. The potential to take this series in many directions is almost limitless yet economical, as most of the action takes place in a ‘haunted house’ type apartment complex. What people don’t realize just yet is that the characters have many layers, and that there are quite a number of plot twists still to come to keep viewers watching. It’s really a comedy horror mystery series; we want to know if the cat is truly possessed, and of course that begs the question, ‘If so, then by whom?’”
