Review by anonymous (posted on 30-Aug-2006)
I worked at a movie theater in
1969 when this movie first played. It was creepy and suspenseful. The
plot of the film was not all that original - younger generation after
the money of the older generation - but the addition of overly
protective cats added to the story the wildcard that prevented the
viewer from always knowing what was going on. The flm has many turns
that are surprising. For some reason, even though the film got good
reviews at the time and proved popular in my movie house, the company
that produced Eye of the Cat re-edited it in order to tone down the
violence in the film. Orignally there were many cats the young man had
to deal with. In the edited version there was but one. Needless to say,
this took the energy out of the movie and really made it laughable. I
have not been able to find a copy of this film in either dvd or vhs.
I'd love to have it. And, hopefully the original version is still
around and can be ressurected on dvd. It's a really entertaining film.
And, the violence that was toned down? Nothing compared to today's
violent pornography. If you ever find this film and are thinking about
seeing it, go for it. You won't be disappointed.
Do you know something we don't?
