Flix for Short: Claycat’s The Raid

Claycat's THE RAID

I have a confession to make: I haven’t seen The Raid: Redemption yet despite the critical acclaim it’s received. It’s my mission to see it this summer, though, once I get a little free time. For now, I’m getting my Raid fix thanks to Lee Hardcastle, who’s recreated the film with claymation cats.

Yes, friends: The Raid recreated with claymation cats.

Back at the beginning of the year, you may recall Hardcatle’s claymation recreation of The Thing using Pingu characters. Unfortunately Hardcastle had to take down the video for legal reasons, but he did recreate The Thing again, this time with Claycat. You can check out that video after the cut. Just think of it as a pre-Caturday treat before the freakin’ weekend.
