Very good, 10 October 2010
Author: zetes from Saint Paul, MN

One can complain about the third segment of Cat's Eye being far too different than the first two, but, heck, I enjoyed it anyway. The first segment has James Woods (awesome as always) as a guy who enters a special, intensive program to quit smoking. The motivation the program uses: if they catch you, they torture your family. It's quite gripping, but also has a wicked sense of humor. The second segment has Robert Hays (the star of Airplane!) as a tennis pro who, having stolen Kenneth McMillan's wife and money, is forced at gunpoint to walk all the way around a very high ledge on a building. If he makes it, McMillan says he'll let him live. This was probably my favorite segment. It's like if Harold Lloyd's Safety Last was a horror film. The final segment breaks away from realistic horror. It's very silly, but still quite entertaining. It has Drew Barrymore as a girl who is being stalked by a tiny troll. Only her cat (the one who owns the titular eyes, and who has a part in the first two tales, as well) can protect her. If the troll sounds familiar, it's because it was voiced by Frank Welker, who later used practically the same voice for Futurama's Nibbler. The cat is wonderful. The poor thing gets hurt in every segment, but it turns out to be probably the most heroic cat in film history!
