4.0 out of 5 stars Three gr8 stories... 15 Oct 2002
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Triple Bill Of Stephen King Night Shifters. 20 Jun 2011
By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty solid horror anthology 11 May 2012
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great slice of 80's cheese 13 April 2013
Format:DVD
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.

This is a brilliant Steven king film, I remember first watching this in the 80s, that cat was a genius played part in the film, it must of took ages to train a cat to do what it did, the thing is no one really knows what the cat was called in real life and isn't mentioned in the credits so I heard, that drew Barrymore was cute when younger, shame she turned into a coke addict when older or whatever she was taking. I'd say if you want to quit smoking this film should help, that first part is scary as hell! Overall very good budget film.
