* out of 4.
15 August 2002 | by brandonsites1981See all my reviews

Laughably bad horror flick about a group of stray cats that live underneath a house. For some reason or another (it is never explained) the cats kill all people they come in contact with. Good for a few laughs, but nothing else. The premise is one of the worst ones I have seen in years and why some respectable actors choose to make this is beyond me. Originally a made for TV movie that aired on USA.

Rated PG-13; Violence.
