Cat's Eye, released in
1985, was based on a screen play by Stephen King. This
movie is a compilation of three vignettes, loosely
related by way of a wandering cat named General.
Some of the starring cast that you might recognize
included Drew Barrymore as Amanda and James Woods as
Dick Morrison. The film received mixed reviews,
although most of them were positive. Ultimately,
the film did make money.
In this movie, General
(the cat) is trying to reach a little girl (played by
Drew Barrymore) who needs his help to save hers from a Troll.
At the start of his trip, General ends up with Dick
Morrison (Woods), a smoker trying to kick the habit with
the help of a mob-operated smoking cessation program.
In this quitting program, family members are tortured or
raped when the smoker lights up. Needless to say,
Jack managed to quit.
In the second
vignette, General ends up as a witness to a twisted love
triangle between a mob boss and his wife's lover.
After a bet that goes awry, it is the mob boss who ends
up dead. In the end, General makes it to Amanda
(Barrymore), and saves her from the troll that tries to
steal her life away. When her parent's realize how
important General is, he is allowed to stay.
