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

The three stories just don't connect and efforts to join them never work. However, an excellent roster of talent does try its best.
The usual caveats about cumulatively unsatisfying portmanteau pictures certainly apply.
Even though the mix contains lumps, Cat's Eye is the best screen adaptation of any King work since Brian De Palma's Carrie.
It's the anthology film I wish "Twilight Zone: The Movie" could have been.
The film seems like a throwback not to old horror comics but to bad syndicated TV horror.
A terceira história é também a pior, o que é lamentável, já que conclui o filme de forma decepcionante depois de duas narrativas interessantes, tensas e divertidas.
A horror anthology written by Stephen King with two good segments enveloping a great one.
Uneven, but mildly diverting at times.
Decent King adaptations shrouded with a weak framing story.
Amusing adaptation of a few Stephen King short stories -- if only smokers were treated in real life as they are in this film!
Although there are big problems with the horror compendium concept, this is worth seeing for James Woods alone, and the crafty use of The Police's 'Every Breath You Take.'
A fairly uneven collection of short horror stories. The segment with James Woods, however, justifies the price of a rental
You would think they could have gotten at least ONE story right.
A very interesting movie!
Entertaining PG-level thriller anthology.
