Don't be a scaredy-cat!
Cat’s Eye was written by Stephen King and directed by Lewis Teague. King’s wit shows every step of the way. His characters are likable but cynical caricatures. The movie is titled Cat’s Eye because its three segments are unified by the short passage of a stray cat. All three tales end with an ironic or karmic conclusion and the cat carries us to the next step.
Story 1 is about a man who receives deadly incentives to quit smoking. The cure starts lightly and escalates into torture. Story 2 is the most stressful and involves a man walking on the ledge of a skyscraper. This one will mark you if you suffer from vertigo! Story 3 is about a troll attempting to suffocate a girl while she is asleep. It isn't a bad segment but it is the weakest one.
The effects that rely most on brightness, contrast and deep blacks reveal heavy flaws on high definition. Lewis Teague pulled small miracles to assemble a nearly perfect horror anthology, but he doesn’t master every aspect of photography. He can coordinate actors skillfully, though. The performances are excellent. We get many familiar faces and an ideal casting.
