CAT'S EYES (STEPHEN KING) | Out Now

From the macabre imagination of Stephen King (the best-selling author of ''Firestarter,'' ''The Shining'' and ''Carrie'') comes this trio of terrifying tales linked by a stray cat that roams from one tale to the next. In the first episode, a New York man (James Woods, Vampires, Nixon) has trouble giving up cigarettes. He turns to a shady self-help operation whose hot-headed owner outlines a litany of incrementally harsh penalties for those who cannot resist having another puff. The second story centers on Cressner (Kenneth McMillan), an Atlantic City mobster. His wife has been having an affair with a tennis pro (Robert Hays), so Cressner forces the athlete to walk the ledge around his high-rise apartment. If the athlete can complete one lap along the overhang, he gets to be with Cressner's wife forever. A young girl (Drew Barrymore, Scream, E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial), in the closing narrative, has difficulty sleeping. Though her parents suspect the family cat of wrongdoing, the girl knows better--especially after she spots a foot-high troll coming out of her bedroom wall...
