What do a man trying to quit smoking, a man running away with his lover, and a troll have in common? They’re all stories told in Cat’s Eye, the 1985 anthology film starring Drew Barrymore. The film has adaptations of two stories from Stephen King’s Night Shift collection, and a third newly written for the screen. Are the original tales scarier than the new one? Are these stories even intended to frighten the audience? Listen to Stuart, Jakob, and Arnie’s review to find out! Arnie is also reviewing all the original King Night Shift short stories at the Books & Nachos podcast!
