Alternate Versions

New scenes were added to the network showing to make it "less intense." The Network-TV version has a different 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. See more »

Thoroughly Enjoyable Surprise
9 March 2006 | by hayman42See all my reviews

I just caught a screening of this movie at BAM in Brooklyn last night. I only went because I was given free tickets and dig horror flicks, so with no expectations and my only knowledge being "it has an army of cats," this movie blew me away. I was totally entertained, alternatingly laughing and jumping throughout. The film is shot beautifully, has a great score, the dialogue crackles, and the cast perfectly walks the line between camp and horror. The vaguely incestuous scenes between Wylie and his Aunt Dani are particularly great.

Of course, the best part is the cats! I was promised an army of cats, and this movie delivered. They truly make the average housecat look like a fierce creature of the night.

A fun horror movie through and through. Please release this on DVD!
