Three Stephen King short stories, linked together by the wanderings of a stray cat, are dramatised in this horror movie. The first sees a chain smoker (James Woods) taking drastic steps to kick the habit, the second features a mobster gaining revenge on his wife's lover, and the third has the cat taking centre stage, pitting its wits against an evil goblin.

Format: DVD
This is a movie split into 3 separate stories each linked by the titular Cat. The first story involves a man who wishes to quit smoking and is directed to a place to help him by his friend. They will go to any lengths to 'help' you quit including bringing in your wife for some shock therapy! The second and best story involves a perilous walk around the edge of a high rise building. The story is very bizarre but compelling viewing as the title character is attacked by Hitchcock style birds along the way making the perilous journey even more nerve jangling. The third story involves a small troll-like creature that lives in a young Drew Barrymore's wall and comes out when she is alone in the room. Surprisingly suspenseful, this 3rd is arguably the weakest but nonetheless is solid entertainment. Overall, the word here is bizarre, but then some King films, such as 'Thinner' do have a seriously bizarre edge to them and this is a valid inclusion in any King fan's repertoire. Well worth a purchase, 4 out of 5!

The film consists of three stories linked together by a cat as he survives in the big city on a quest to find a little girl who is in danger.

As he searches, the cat has minor input in the first two stories. The first story sees an addictive smoker (James Woods) forced to find a cure for his habit or see his wife face the consequence. Safe and quirky segment backed up by the always watchable Woods on form. The second, and weakest segment, has a wife's lover (Robert Hays) forced by her jealous husband to play a deadly game on the ledge of a tall building. The rewards for survival are obvious, as is the downside. Can he turn the tables you wonder? It's with the final segment that Cat's Eye lifts itself out of mediocrity with a terrifying tale of a child under threat from a troll like demon who intends to steal her breath. Called "The General" {the cat's name given by Drew Barrymore's under threat child} it plays on some very basic fears and fables to really gnaw away at the senses.

Also notable for lots of King spot the reference points, Lewis Teague's film {King doing the screenplay obviously} arguably deserves a better standing in the horror pantheon than it actually has. It's true the first two stories barely raise a chill or even a giggle, and Alan Silvestri's score is horrendous and nearly ruins "The General" at its crucial cat/troll face off. While the effects now look tired and show up to be shoddy on new era technology TVs. But it's still an entertaining film with a pretty neat cast, and of course it gave the 80s one of its best and scariest creatures. 7/10

There's something about Cat's Eye, because this movie really could have fallen off the radar. Here we have 3 stories intertwined from the inkpen of Stephen King.

The first story stars the excellent James Woods and will be throughly appealing to persons who have just quit smoking!

The second is not for people scared of heights, this is probably the strongest of the stories.

The third is more of a heart warming family pic, involving a cat, a troll and Drew Barrymore. It's probably the weakest, though does have a decent climax.

Cat's Eye is a good horror anthology that has stayed the test of time.

I'd class this classic as an american-style version of a cross between 'the twilight zone' and a hammer/vipco/amicus style thriller. Released in 1984, when 'horror/anthology stories'...especially U.S. ones, for me personally was in its prime. When i first saw this as a 7yr-old, i was drawn to it immediately. As a cat lover for starters, stephen king interlinks 3 stories of people from different backgrounds. Robert Hays-aka (Airplane's), James Woods, and Drew Barrymore, who looks like she's just walked from the E.T. set to Cat's Eye set lol... Each story features in key parts a very clever striped-bengal cat, that either makes sure the baddies get their just desserts, or helps save your life, albeit from gangsters or 5inch demons living in a childs scurting-board in her bedroom trying to steel their souls via their breath. A great film, full of nostalgia from that era, one to never tire of, and fantastic performances from all the cast/crew, with the added bonus of a backdrop soundtrack/incidental music 'back to the future-style' by the great Alan Silvestri. You'll not help but think of back to the future in some scenes when the music kicks in, same as in predator. Enjoy....

Roger Corman protege Lewis Teague was never going to win an Oscar for this low-budget horror flick, but that's missing the point. A telepathic tabby cat is the common thread in three Stephen King short stories dealing with smoking, gambling and, er, goblins. It's probably fair to say that the cat is the best actor in the whole thing, but don't let that put you off - this is a splendidly entertaining piece of 80's trash. If you're of a certain age you'll be used to seeing the film panned-and-scanned on TV, so it's nice to see it in all its anamorphic widescreen glory. Don't expect anything more than a stereo soundtrack though.
