September 24, 2020
A competent, consistent horror anthology.
September 8, 2020
All three stories are well-realized and fun, with a knowing use of wipe transitions and other gleefully arch visual tricks; only the wraparound threatens to become a little too self-aware.
August 31, 2020
A lesser entry in the annals of cinematic horror anthologies.

Privilege is also a crime in Cat from Hell, which once again pits the rich against a supernatural force for whom money holds no currency.
February 22, 2014
Horror fans-particularly those who enjoy the Tales From the Darkside TV show-should be content with this two-out-of-three.
October 22, 2012
Suffers from being a very grim and bleak anthology film with a narrative structure that never lives up to the innovation of "Creepshow."

Dull, derivative horror anthology.
May 14, 2008
All rather unpleasant and not for the squeamish.

Harrison never quite transcends the inherently limited format.

A disappointment, but not a complete waste of time.
August 30, 2004
hanks to casting that is savvier than the horror norm, and to direction by John Harrison that is workmanlike and sometimes even witty, at least it's fun.
July 1, 2004
A Creepshow ripoff that wallows in the fact.

Not nearly as cool as Creepshow, but a lot better than...Campfire Tales? Deadtime stories? Tales from the Hood? Creepshow 2? See, there just aren't enough cool horror anthologies out there.

"you'll be terrified -- that you wasted your time"

This group of tales is perfect for your low-calorie horror midnight snack.
November 17, 2001
This is just another miss along the lines of Creepshow and Twilight Zone: The Movie.
November 17, 2001
Offers the kind of variety and creative opportunities that help paper over the movie's weaker narrative aspects.
