A trio of tales involving a stray cat which is really more of a thriller than a horror film. I adored this as a little girl though, the stories are short enough to hold attention, but long enough to feel satisfying. Firstly we have an anti-smoking limit which may go just a little too far to obtain success. You'll never think of the Police's "Every Breath You Take" in the same way again. Next we have a cat and mouse came with adultery and a tense dangerous ledge walk. Then we have Drew as a little girl who has some weird troll thing that is trying to suffocate her in her sleep. Really very fun and enjoyable for most folks I'd assume. Again, don't expect blood and scares, but it's at least well developed interesting stories with twists just like King is famous for. This is one for the kids (or at least I enjoyed it the most when I was younger) but still I think this film is a great deal of fun.
