Not for catlovers
10 February 2002 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

This movie has a very interesting plot. A family moves into a new home and are terrorized by cats. It just sounds like another "nature out of control" killer animal type movies. And it is, but with cats. Come on, CATS! You could probably name any animal and it would probably have a horror movie about it, but I think that cats is probably the absolute worst choice for an animal killer. Like another user said, Cujo can tear your leg off, Jaws can chew you to bits, and insects can bite and swarm, but cats weight about 10 lbs, and the only thing they can do is scratch and bite. Any other animal would have made this movie scarier, even mice. Of course, there are horror movies about them, and they are scary because, they can bite and swarm, but when cats have always been looked at as "cute and cuddly" pets, a movie like this doesn't seem as scary as all the others. It just looks stupid. If you are a catlover, stay away from this at all costs. I, myself, am a catlover, and after watching it, you just sorta get a weird feeling. The only good thing about this movie is the acting, which I think was pretty decent. The cast did good when pretending to be afraid of these cats. This movie has wasted all nine of it's lives.
