PHOTOS OF THE DAY: Iconic Movie Images ... But With Cats!
June 11, 2012

Ever found yourself watching Stanley Kubrick's film 'The Shining', and thinking, "This is scary, but it would be even better with a cat instead of Jack Nicholson?" Well apparently, Redditor haissam93 and his sister were listening to your (very strange) thoughts. They've recreated iconic scenes from four films, including 'The Shining', with their cat standing in for the human actors.

Apparently the cat's career as a stand-in is over - the photographers say their pet hated every second of the photo shoots, so if they ever do any more they'll need a new lead actor. Check out the shots below:
