And finally in...
THE GENERAL: The cat must defend the child from a tiny life stealing monster but the mother feels it's the cat who stealing her daughter's breath like the old myth claims. But the truth may end up killing her.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

I got to admit I'm not the biggest Steven King fan, in fact, there are several movie adaptations of his work that I hate. But that's another review. This time we are talking about Cat's Eye. Three stories are all impressive, not perfect, but impressive. Not all of them are completely realistic either. But I got to admit I love the little General monster in the third story, even though they never truly said what the heck that thing was to begin with. A demon, a mutant, what? Other then the truth behind the myth of the cat stealing your baby's breath. Which I always knew was bunk. The second story and no pun there was well written as well. All and all one of King's best stories and best movie adaptations and I would highly recommend it even if you aren't a King fan. 9 STARS out of 10.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

Although I agree with Zedd I have a major complaint about the first story, QUITTERS INC, that kind of thing isn't legal. If I was Dick, I wouldn't put up with being watched all the time. I would do what I want and when they murdered my wife I would see them hang for murder. Which is a crime, that kind of thing isn't legal and can't happen in these United States and that unrealistic story is the reason why I'm giving CAT'S EYE 7 STARS.

...AND FINALLY...

- FIRST STORY (Great acting and great cast, but unrealistic.)
