Better than I expected.

Most of the reviews I have read about this trio of Stephen King short stories have tended to be mostly negative. It is true that none of the stories really do full justice to the original writing but this is still a worthy effort. Everything that occurs is observed by this catwho is looking for a child whom he is meant to protect. The first story, titled "Quitters Inc," concerns a New York businessman who is put in touch with this rather mysterious clinic who could help him to stop smoking. The methods that are employed leave the man somewhat stunned answer unnerved. James Woods usually played tough characters but here he is cast against type and does well. The ending is abrupt and seems unfinished. Next, the cat travels to a city which resembles Las Vegas. A crime boss makes a better with his wife's lover that he can't make his way to another side of this skyscraper via the ledge and it's 43 floors up! This story is the best in my opinion as there are some fine moments of suspense. Finally, the cat finds the child in question (Drew Barrymore) and is adapted by her family. The cat proves that he is loyal by fending off this demon which frightens the child in the middle of the night and on a few occasions. Not a bad film but some rather cheesy special effects which aren't very convincing.

Literary leftovers

Stephen King's short stories have garnered him almost as much acclaim as his novels, and they have proved to be just as easily adaptable for the screen ("Stand By Me", "The Shawshank Redemption"); "Cat's Eye" is the exception. King himself expanded two of his early stories (from the collection "Night Shift") and introduces a new addition to form this weak anthology of shuddery tales linked by a rather boring feline. The most telling sign of the picture's failure is that none of these tales would succeed as their own feature-length production (there's not enough meat on their bones). Everything about "Cat's Eye" seems like leftover goods (from either 1982's "Creepshow", written by King, or 1983's "Twilight Zone The Movie"), which is surprising considering how mindful King is of his devoted fan base. No one involved in the production looks as if they had any hope for its success. There's no promise in Lewis Teague's direction and no surprises from a rather weary cast of second-drawer talents. NO STARS from ****

A meow-madeau

Cat's Eye takes three Stephen King stories, "Quitters, Inc.", "The Ledge" (both from Night Shift) and "General," an original story. The three tales are connected by a cat, who is involved in the first two stories but becomes the main character in the final part of the film.

That cat starts as a stray who is chased by Cujo and is nearly run over by Christine (this film is literally Stephen King fan service, also featuring references to The Dead Zone and Pet Sematary). He hears the voice of a little girl asking for help, but he's captured by an employee of Quitters, Inc.

That's the title of the first story, an exploration of "What if the Mob helped people quit smoking?" James Woods and Alan King star here and the rules for quitting cigarettes are simple. The first time you get caught, you get shocked. The second time, your wife gets shocked. The third time, your Downs Syndrome daughter (Drew Barrymore, in one of three roles) gets shocked. Oh yeah and they rape your wife. Finally, they just give up on you.

"The Ledge" follows Cressner (Kenneth McMillan, Baron Harkonnen from Dune) catching Johnny Norris (Robert Hays from Airplane!) and his wife in an affair. Cressner is a better man, so he challenges Johnny to walk around a building.

"General" pretty much saves the film, the tale of Amanda (Barrymore) and an evil gnome who tries to take her soul. General is the cat we've been following for the entire film and he's trying to save her, but her mother thinks the cat just wants to kill her bird. This part of the film is quite literally a Loony Toons movie brought to life, with the grotesque troll matching wits with our heroic cat (Frank Welker does the voices for both).

This film is part of the Dino De Laurentiis era of King movies, with the producer asking King to write a role for Barrymore, who he loved in Firestarter. It's a throwaway movie, to be honest, with some fun effects at the end. It's directed by Lewis Teague, who also was in the chair for The Jewel of the Nile, Cujo, Navy Seals, the Dukes of Hazzard TV reunion and the aborted Justice League of America TV movie).
