Cat's Eye My Favorite Stephen King Movie

Although I haven't seen all of Stephen King's films I have seen Pet Cemetery, Cat's Eye, Cujo, It, Carrie, Silver Bullet and The Dead Zone and all of these are great movies but Cat's Eye is my favorite so far.

Cat's Eye is a perfect example of a thriller and comedy flawlessly intertwined. The humor is great because it's deadpan therefore it doesn't take away from the suspense of the story at all. This movie is actually three mini-movies all in one and all three are events which the cat either witnessed or experienced.

This has very memorable characters and excellent acting by Alan King, James Woods, and a very young Drew Barrymore.

Vote: 10 (Excellent)

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 ****
