EYE OF THE CAT [TV Version] (1969 USA)
$16.99 Add to cart
This offbeat potboiler from Psycho scripter Joseph Stefano involves a plot hatched by mod couple Wylie (Michael Sarrazin) and Kassia (Gayle Hunnicutt) to murder Wylie's wealthy, cat-loving aunt Danny (Eleanor Parker). There's only one hitch in their scheme, but it's a doozy: Wylie suffers from a severe case of ailurophobia -- an irrational fear of all cats. In order for their plot to succeed, the pair must first eliminate Aunt Danny's legions of feline companions...which turns out to be much more difficult than expected, thanks to a sly, deadly counter-plot.
Notes on alternate versions: This is the Network-TV version with a different "less intense" last half-hour, replacing the plot's supernatural element and an army of killer housecats with one somewhat-menacing housecat and a person with a paranoid delusion. This was made from outtakes and a few new scenes filmed in 1971, shortly before it aired.
