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.

Rather than serving as distractions, the self-referential shout-outs fit the overall mix of horror and humor.

It's the anthology film I wish "Twilight Zone: The Movie" could have been.

A horror anthology written by Stephen King with two good segments enveloping a great one.

Stephen King seems to be working his way through the reference books of human phobias, and Cat's Eye is one of his most effective films.

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.'

Even though the mix contains lumps, Cat's Eye is the best screen adaptation of any King work since Brian De Palma's Carrie.

A fairly uneven collection of short horror stories. The segment with James Woods, however, justifies the price of a rental

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 film seems like a throwback not to old horror comics but to bad syndicated TV horror.
