Reminds me of the bit when Johnny Depp gets killed in A Nightmare On Elm Street.

This happens because when cats face each other in play or in battle, it is a sign of respect and caution to keep your eyes on your opponent / rival at all times.
Cats evolved to respect the speed and agility of each other, so you needed to keep the other cat in sight at all times to be able to quickly react to it.
The common housecat has evolved to view their human masters as simply a 'bigger' cat and the head of the group.
Nevertheless, it is in a cat's nature to play and compete with the human both for fun and sometimes status.
For a cat to turn it's back on another cat is a huge insult. It's the equivalent of saying, "Bitch, you are so slow, and so not a threat that I don't even need to keep my eye on you."
That's why this cat attacked. Because to do otherwise would be to accept that it was so inferior that it didn't even need to be watched.
You can replicate this with your own cat. Make a 'claw' with your hand and attack your cat with it playfully. It will probably attack back. Notice that as you keep your 'claw' facing your cat it will react and move with caution. However, if you turn your 'claw' away from it and proceed to slowly move it away, it will attack almost immediately.
Fuck, I shouldn't have taken cold medicine and drank a bunch of coffee. That was a bad idea. I can't make myself stop thinking.
