Nine Lives and Greedy
3 July 2012 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The vagrant Ulric (Joe Pantoliano) is invited by Dr. Emil Manfred (Gustav Vintas) to participate in a medical experiment; in return, he would receive his savings. Dr. Manfred implants a group of cells from a cat and Ulric is capable to die nine times.

Ultic associates to the owner of a side show, Barker (Robert Wuhl), and together with his mistress Coralee (Kathleen York), they make a successful show where Ulric dies in front of the audiences. When Ulric uses the eight life, he schedules a great last show…for real.

"Dig That Cat... He's Real Gone" is one of the funniest shows of Tales from the Crypt. The black humor is top-notch and the witty tale of nine lives and greedy has a macabre conclusion. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Dig That Cat... He's Real Gone"
