Consensus: An effective if knowingly silly Stephen King anthology that combines comedy and terror.

Variety Staff

The three stories just don't connect and efforts to join them never work. However, an excellent roster of talent does try its best.

Even though the mix contains lumps, Cat's Eye is the best screen adaptation of any King work since Brian De Palma's Carrie.

It's the anthology film I wish "Twilight Zone: The Movie" could have been.

The list of films that genuinely capture the spirit of Stephen King - the darkness, humor, and cleverness that made his books and stories so irresistible - is surprisingly short. But 'Cat's Eye' deserves a place on that list.

The film seems like a throwback not to old horror comics but to bad syndicated TV horror.

Chicago Sun-Times

Stephen King seems to be working his way through the reference books of human phobias, and Cat's Eye is one of his most effective films.

Rather than serving as distractions, the self-referential shout-outs fit the overall mix of horror and humor.

A terceira história é também a pior, o que é lamentável, já que conclui o filme de forma decepcionante depois de duas narrativas interessantes, tensas e divertidas.

Yet another great anthology horror movie, this one is of Stephen King stories. It has a lot of great actors, and the stories are great too. I loved it.

With the exception of some bad blue screen I still loved this movie. The Goblin at the was still creepy as well.

Yes! This movie is great. I was terrified to sleep for years with my face up, because I thought a wall goblin would suck my breath out.
