Mommy! Mommy!
26 January 2011 | by (Brooklyn NY USA) – See all my reviews

***SPOILERS*** Coming home from the hospital after suffering a nervous breakdown famous stage actress Elena Stacy, Margaret Philips, is still haunted by the death of her 8 year old daughter De De. It was on that rainy evening that De De in trying to get the family cat, who ran out of the house, from running into the street got herself killed by being hit by a truck! Now Elena together with her director writer husband Kevin, Arthr Frenz, have to live with the fact that their daughter is no longer here and that's something that Elena just can't accept!

It's later when the family cat who was responsible for De De's death shows upon the scene that Elena starts to hear her deceased daughter screaming "Mommy! Mommy!" as if she's warning her that something terrible is about to happen! The screams get even loader with Elena in trying to get her life back together, by going back to acting, is forced to see an ear specialist Dr.Harvey, Ben Hammer, in her hoping that it's her hearing not mental condition that's casing her to hear her late daughter's screams.

***SPOILERS*** It's later with Elena about to go on stage that a very strange thing happens. This little girl, Dyan Hinton, spots the late De De's cat running in the streets and follows it into the theater where Elena is preforming! With the door suddenly locked behind her the little girl starts to scream out hysterically "Mommy! Mommy! just like Elean heard her daughter did that was driving her to another nervous breakdown! What in fact it did was drive her off the stage, to see where the cries were coming from, and thus ended up saving her life!

Was it all a lucky coincidence that the little girl by getting herself locked in the theater ended up preventing Elena from being crushed to death by a falling theater lighting fixture! If that's the case how can one explain the fact that the little girl who, by her screaming, saved Elena's life just happened to be at the right place and the right time to run into De De's cat who mysteriously guided her there!
