Three horror-thriller tales revolve around a mysterious stray cat which is attempting to find a little girl in trouble. In "Quitters, Inc.": the cat is picked up by a shady New York City "doctor" who uses experimental techniques to get people to quit smoking. His latest client is a man named Morrison, who learns he'll suffer some terrible consequences if he tries to cheat. In "The Ledge": the cat is picked up by Cressner, a shady Atlantic City millionaire who forces tennis pro Norris (his wife's lover), to walk a narrow ledge around his high-rise penthouse apartment. In "The General": the cat arrives in Wilmington, North Carolina, where it is found by Amanda, the young girl it has been sent to protect. What she needs protection from is a tiny, evil troll who lives behind the skirting board in her bedroom.Written by
The Cat's Eye is an analogy of three stories of suspense and horror that are all linked to a stray cat.
The first two stories deal mostly with mad doctors and criminals, with the cat only loosely connected to the people involved in the tales. However, the cat takes on a larger role in the third story, which stars Drew Barrymore playing a young girl being endangered by a menacing troll.
This film is not terribly horrific or frightening, but there are some suspenseful, edgy and creepy moments - especially like the part where Robert Hays' character is forced to walk on a high ledge around a building. Mixed in are some dark humor and lighthearted moments, and some funny acting.
Not the greatest horror movie out there, but it's still rather entertaining.
