HORROR in SEPTEMBER
Eye of the Cat directed by David Lowell Rich is stimulating horror with a breath-taking San Francisco setting, delicious 1960s counter-culture atmosphere and mind-boggling Hitchcockian suspense by Joseph Stefano (Psycho and The Outer Limits) from beginning to end that left me satisfied. Afterwards, I wanted to write.
The story hints on an incestuous infatuation between rich Aunt Danny who suffers from emphysema and her favorite nephew (Wylie) Aunt Danny cherishes like an idol. A lot more than Wylie’s younger brother Luke who looks after Aunt Danny after Wylie took off for warmer places. Aunt Danny calls Wylie "the prince of her soul." When beautiful Kassia an employee at the Spa (Belomondo) where Luke drives Aunt Danny learns that Aunt Danny is dying and plans to leave all her money to her 100+ cats unless Wylie returns to inherit her fortune instead of the cats, Kassia who has all the wrong values locates Wylie across the bay to return home. Together, as scripted by Kassia, they scheme to murder Aunt Danny right after Aunt Danny first gets rid of the cats since Wylie has ailurophobia and then signs a new will.
But the cats with or without Aunt Danny's signature or oxygen have a deadly will of their own...
