Follow the newest cat-and-creature game as played through...

A wandering supernatural feline's adventures provide the linking story for Stephen King's Cat's Eye. First up: the staff at Quitters, Inc. promises to help nicotine fiend Dick Morrison kick the habit. If not, someone in Morrison's household might get smoked...because QI us run by a very persuasive mob family. Next comes a cliffhanger. Or a ledgehanger. Either way, a luckless gambler is forced into a bet involving a stroll around a building-on the five inch ledge encircling the 30th floor. Finally, our wayfarer kitty rescues a schoolgirl from a vile, doll-size troll.

I liked this one back when I first saw it and upon review it was still entertaining. There's a few nods to other Stephen King movies in here as well as some good work by James Woods and Drew Barrymore. A trilogy that centers around a cat and a young girl and a troll. Cat vs. troll. What's not to love?

I've seen this collection of short stories years ago but enjoyed it again. Interesting to see some actors when they were younger. Drew Barrymore appears in one of these when she was maybe 10 or 11 years old. So she had already played in "ET. The Extra Terrestrial" and also "Fire Starter". She is so cute here where she loves and protects a stray cat which returns the favour. These stories are not Sci-fi, strictly speaking, but more like some are wierd and some are supernatural. Worth watching.

I found this to be really strange. The only good things were the cat and Robert Hays, who was in one of my favourite movies Flying High.

A collection of three short stories. Two of these are from the short story collection Night Shift by Stephen King and one is an original, penned by the author. With decent actors(James Woods, Robert Hays) and snappy stories this isn't half bad. The two from the novel, Quitters Inc and The Ledge, are both punchy thrillers that both show the darker sides of human nature. The third, which I presume to be called Cats' Eye, seem pretty schlockky now but even it has some merit with some impressive effects by Carlo Rambaldi. All in all, it's not a MUST-SEE. It is however an interesting, flawed piece in the ever growing Stephen King film adaptations

This was a little odd not neceserally scary either. The first story is quite good, the third was kind of boring. But the best of course is the last one starring little Drew. For its time, the effects of the last story are really well done. Not something I'd watch again, but at least I can say Ii've seen it. I gave it 3/5 stars for not having enough punch.
