Why hello there, dearest Filthy Dreams readers! Are you ready for another installment of our GIF reviews? This time, we’re looking at Alex Da Corte’s current exhibition C-A-T Spells Murder at Karma. Inspired by R. L. Stine’s novel Cat from his Fear Street series–the older and trashier pulp fiction version of his Goosebump books, C-A-T Spells Murder is like an art-filled haunted house. Da Corte immerses viewers in a neon room with giant cats, lurking eyes, boarded-up windows, suspiciously inviting pies and a video of a terrified Annie Clark, otherwise known as St. Vincent, stroking a one-eyed cat and screaming, while billiard balls roll her face.

All of which makes the exhibition perfect for a GIF review so “read” on:
