Trivia

Shots from "Eye of the Cat"'s opening sequence, as well as a few shots from a funeral sequence flashback that occurs later in the film, are seen briefly in a 1973 "Night Gallery" titled, "Die Now, Pay Later" (Season 3, episode 16). See more »

Alternate Versions

New scenes were added to the network showing to make it "less intense." The Network-TV version has a different last half-hour, replacing the plot's supernatural element and an army of killer housecats with one somewhat-menacing housecat and a person with a paranoid delusion. This was made from outtakes and a few new scenes filmed in 1971, shortly before it aired. See more »

A few standout sequences...but ultimately ridiculous
18 June 2009 | by moonspinner55See all my reviews

Joseph Stefano concocted this rather haphazard suspense yarn about a mercenary young woman in San Francisco who reunites a wealthy, dying woman with her beloved ne'er-do-well nephew in order to get her hands on the inheritance money. The plan gets off to a shaky start after the nephew, who harbors a paralyzing fear of cats, discovers hundreds of the meowing creatures in his aunt's manor. The felines are well-trained, and the film has an OK production and cast, but the story fails to add up. Stefano wants surprises and plot twists, but the scheming people we meet aren't really very exciting or interesting. A couple of shock scenes (particularly a well-staged one involving Eleanor Parker trying to make her way up a steep incline in her electric wheelchair) give the picture some much-needed flair, however the resolution is cloudy and the whole tale ultimately pointless. ** from ****
