Reviews

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!

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....

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

Cat's Eye (1985) is an early film Mum took me to with my brothers on its UK release date. It was back in the 1980s, the Odeon, when the lady used to bring the ice creams around in a basket and, ironically to this anthology, smoking was still allowed. The film is directed by Lewis Teague (Cujo), written by Stephen King (screenplay and stories), and produced by Dino De Laurentiis (Firestarter, Silver Bullet). This anthology features three tales bound by a wraparound story, which tracks the journey of an alley cat. Each tale is seen through the eyes of the cat.

The Cat
Stalking the streets, the alley cat is chased by a St Bernard and then almost run over by a red 1958 Plymouth Fury. He escapes by hiding in a delivery truck and is taken to New York City. Here he hears the voice of a young girl crying for help, but is suddenly trapped and taken by an employee of Quitters, Inc.

Tale One: Quitters, Inc.
Dick Morrison is a chain smoker who is desperately trying to kick the habit and is told by a friend about a new company called Quitters, Inc., who have a failsafe way of helping their clients give up. However, the deal is, if Morrison ever smokes again, bad things will happen to his wife and daughter. Dr Donatti demonstrates one of the punishments on the tom cat. Can Morrison quit the habit or will Quitters, Inc. spell the end for him?

Tale Two: The Ledge
The cat has escaped Quitters, Inc. and heads to Atlantic City. Here, tennis player and gambling junky, Johnny Norris, is having an affair with the wife of a local mob boss and casino owner, Cressner. The latter offers him the ultimate wager: if Norris can circumambulate the ledge of his high rise building without falling he will divorce his wife.
