Synopsis Three wry and shocking Stephen King short stories are linked by a stray cat which roams from one tale to the next. The stories feature James Woods attempting to quit smoking by any means necessary, Robert Hays being forced to circle a building's hazardous ledge, and Drew Barrymore threatened by a tiny gnome.From the macabre imagination of Stephen King comes this trio of terrifying tales. In the first episode, a New York man has trouble giving up cigarettes. He turns to a shady self-help operation whose hotheaded owner outlines a litany of incrementally harsh penalties for those who cannot resist having another puff. The second story centers on Cressner, a mobster who works Atlantic City. His wife has been having an affair with a tennis pro, so Cressner forces the athlete to walk the ledge around his apartment high-rise. If the athlete can complete one lap along the overhang, he gets to be with Cressner's wife forever. A young girl, in the closing narrative, has difficulty sleeping. Though her parents suspect the family cat of wrongdoing, the girl knows better -- especially after she spots a foot-high troll coming out of her bedroom wall...Cat's Eye began during the film adaptation of author Stephen King's Firestarter, also a Dino De Laurentiis production. De Laurentiis solicited King to write another vehicle for actress Drew Barrymore. King returned with an idea about a girl and the pet cat that guards her from a mischievous troll. Because this material did not warrant a feature-length project, King adapted two short stories from his anthology Night Shift -- Quitters, Inc. and The Ledge -- to comprise Cat's Eye. Additional cast: Mary D'Arcy (Cindy). Filmed in J-D-C Widescreen. Color by Technicolor. Recorded in Dolby sound....Elements of Roald Dahl's urbane, unsentimental humor [mixed with King's]...affection for things magical and occult....A good deal of comic authority......An excellent roster of talent......The special effects are impeccable and Giorgio Postiglione's production design meticulous and inspired...
