Dame Judi Dench TERRIFIES fans in the Cats trailer so much they 'can't sleep'... but some jokingly compare her look to Jennifer Lopez in Hustlers

The first full length trailer for the Universal movie Cats was released on Tuesday, featuring a shimmying Taylor Swift as the flirtatious Bombalurina. 

But viewers were left terrified by the disturbing human-cat hybrids, especially Dame Judi Dench, as one even jokingly compared her feline character's look to Jennifer Lopez's Ramona from Hustlers.

The actress, 84, plays Old Deuteronomy in the adaptation of the classic musical, and her look - which consists of a fur coat over her own pelt - left Twitter users reeling in horror as they said they 'couldn't sleep' afterwards.

Judi's cat-human hybrid could be seen in the trailer with the other cats at the annual Jellicle Ball, where she is lauded over by her feline counterparts.

The Skyfall star stepped out in a puffy fur jacket that matched the colour of her fur, and also appeared to mimic J-Lo's look in the crime drama hit. 

One Twitter user joked: 'Judi Dench giving us @JLo in Hustlers... #CatsMovie'

While another added: 'PSA: Cats is still a movie, and it's coming out on Dec 20th. Judi Dench is coming to get you and there is nothing you or anyone else can do about it.'

Comparing Judi to other actors in the film, one wrote: 'Holy. Mother. Of. God. James Cordon cat, I can block from my mind, memories of Idris Elba cat will fade but Judi Dench Cat - you just keep the hell away from me...'

Idris' cat Prince of Crime Macavity also scared fans, as one user called him their 'sleep paralysis demon' after he featured heavily in the new trailer.

Another fan suggested: 'When the ladies wanted to see Idris Elba naked this is not what they had in mind' 

While one user continued in the same vein: 'Damn, Cats will go down in history for being the first film to make Idris Elba look not sexy. I want death.'
