      Jeff M More a collection of TWILIGHT ZONE-type oddities than anything truly suspenseful or terrifying, this admittedly dated film is still quite watchable, even if only on a purely nostalgic level or just to see Drew Barrymore when she was knee high to a grasshopper . The second segment is easily the best for me and actually does build a bit of tension, especially for those of us who are afraid of heights. Those of you children of the 80s glued to HBO will likely remember this quite fondly. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/04/24 Full Review helder f A cat is witness to several stories with limited role. In the last story, the cat is sort of a hero. The stories are not bad, but a series of disjointed stories do not feel like a movie. The cat is placed in the first series of stories in such a silly way with no clear intention or purpose. It's sort of a prop. The last story is more of a story in which the role of the cat is clear, and there are good scenes. But all in all, not that good of a movie Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/29/24 Full Review Dan R Like the modern day the 80's were a time full of Stephen King adaptations with 'Cat's Eye' dropping in 1985. SYNOPSIS: 'A stray cat is the linking element of three tales of suspense and horror.' 'Cat's Eye' is pure Stephen King bizarro world which is even more enthralling if you're a fan of his works. This film also seems to set up the concept of Easter eggs within films before that was even a thing. See how many references you find! It brims with understated artistry even though it screams of corny 80s special effects which are hard on the eye. Although the stories don't really connect the roster of acting talent can only be celebrated, with Drew Barrymore in only her second film role. A campy classic! 6/10 Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/17/24 Full Review Regina P This is currently on HBO Max. Absolute rubbish. The stories almost seem like Twilight Zone skits that were duct taped together. Ultimately lacking in any coherence or meaning or sense. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 11/24/23 Full Review Jerod S It's hard to turn Stephen King novels into good movies...especially in the 80s. The little creature in the wall was kinda funny - but the cat didn't tie the stories together for me. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 10/05/23 Full Review Jelisije J One of the most interesting movies that I have ever seen that deals with people quitting smoking, monsters underneath the bed, and insane husbands..... definitely a memorable time.

      Paul Attanasio Washington Post King is popular for the same reason McDonald's is popular -- you always know what to expect. Jan 2, 2018 Full Review Jason Bailey Flavorwire The list of films that genuinely capture the spirit of Stephen King - the darkness, humor, and cleverness that made his books and stories so irresistible - is surprisingly short. But 'Cat's Eye' deserves a place on that list. Oct 2, 2016 Full Review Variety Staff Variety The three stories just don't connect and efforts to join them never work. However, an excellent roster of talent does try its best. Mar 26, 2009 Full Review Kristy Strouse Wonderfully Weird and Horrifying Cat’s Eye is pure, bizarre camp with just the right amount of Stephen King’s signature terror. Nov 7, 2022 Full Review Christian Jones Starburst Cat’s Eye is brimming with understated artistry that is a joy to watch. Rated: 4/5 Jun 3, 2022 Full Review Eddie Harrison …worth seeing for completists, but even casual viewers should dig the willingness of King and Teague to entertain… Rated: 3/5 May 26, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
