    Synopsis


    Cat's Eye
    Cat's Eye is an uneven, tepid trilogy of stories written by Stephen King connected by a cat which appears at the beginning of each story. The best story, and first episode, concerns chain-smoker Morrison (James Woods) who joins a stop-smoking group run by sadistic Dr. Monatti, played with great relish by Alan King. In the second episode, a gambler named Cressner (Kenneth McMillan) makes a bet with his wife's lover. In the third episode, a young girl (Drew Barrymore) is terrorized by a tiny troll. Although he wrote the screenplay, Stephen King was disappointed with the results and thought the interconnection of the stories using the cat clumsy and distracting. Directer Lewis Teague does an average job of directing the confusing and sometimes foolish script. However, James Woods' fine performance and the special effects by Jeff Jarvis make the film worth a view. ~ Linda Rasmussen, Rovi

      Child actress Drew Barrymore (E.T.) once again stars in this thriller of stories by Stephen King. I like it, although it is a little dated. Still good and always good to see Drew. The last story is the best one in the bunch and low and behold, Ms. Candy Clark (American Graffiti, Blue Thunder, Amityville 3D, The Blob 1988) stars as "Drew's" mother. A host of actors of the era also star such as James Woods. You'll recognize the faces. You will also see a few "gems" of Stephen's movies in the beginning, so watch for those. Nice cameos! The movie looks good on the 4K UHD 55"! If you play it back on an upscaling blu-ray player, it will be 2160p and look great even for the year it was released! Comes with Commentary and the Theatrical Trailer. Widescreen and sound is decent, Dolby Digital English 2.0 as well as other languages, 2.0.

      The Cat, It Knows

      By far my favorite thing about this movie is that it strings together three different tales where the constant is the mysterious stray Cat, combining horror, supernatural, and comedy. The last tale with an evil-troll and a young Drew Barrymore is by far the creepiest and most unsettling. And by then you come to know why the Cat, the mystery linking together these stories, is there - a protector of the young girl.

      This one often gets overlooked in conversatiuons about horror anthologies, but it shouldn't - a nice creepy tone, some entertaining morality tales, and great performances by the cast make this one a must own for horror completists. Sadly, bonus feastures are slim, and PQ and AQ is only ok, but for an inexpensive WB catalogue title, it is a solid purchase!

      A Horror Anthology That Stands Out

      Stephen King's Cat's Eye tells three very different stories dealing with smoking addiction, a man walking around the ledge of a high rise building after getting envolved with the wrong man's wife and a little girl who needs protection from a small but deadly threat that is after her in her bedroom at night. If you like horror with a little bit of comedy this movie is for you.

      It’s a classic for those of us who are older. When this movie first came out it was scary back then. Stephen King was ahead of his time. Our 10 year old daughter likes watching these classics. It doesn’t scare her but she gets a kick out of how scary movies was made back then. Decent quality for a movie that was converted to blue ray.

      Stephen King’s first filmed screenplay features adaptations of two short stories from his Night Shift collection – Quitter’s Inc. and The Ledge. The third story, General, is new. Over all it has a nice EC comics type edge to each vignette, not really scary but more comic. Blu-ray looks great!

      Warner Brothers outdid themselves with the transfer on this one. Gorgeous and film like with a very high bitrate. The lossless 2.0 audio track also sounds wonderful when decoded with Dolby Pro Logic. Add to that a fun commentary by the director and you can't go wrong with this package if you're a fan

      I grew up catching this movie late at night on the USA network and the stories always stuck with me. Being a huge Stephen King fan, I love the portrayals of each of these stories and am excited to now have them on Bluray! A must have if you're a King/Horror fan.
