- Lindsey - Possessive of her husband to the point of being irrational, not the one I'd pick in a cat fight.
- Paul - Our strong male lead, equipped with lightning reflexes and an impressive dog.
- Tessa - The little daughter, she doesn't do much other than cry.
- Claire - Lindey's sister and emotional leech, dies after plummeting ten feet. (Even though a table breaks her fall.)
- Benny - Paul's mop of a dog.
- Telephone Guy - How an average tomcat killed him we'll never know.
- The Vet - You think country doctors are old and grumpy? Try some guy who has to stick his arm in cows now and then.
- The "Alpha" Cat - Leader of a pack of carnivorous kittens. Tries to chew through a power line, just like the shark in "Jaws 2."
|Worries are common enough when buying a home, but I doubt on anyone's checklist is the all important note to inspect the grounds for a pack of deadly felines. Such is the pitfall Paul and Lindsey fall into, though she is more worried about her sister (On the bounce from a failed marriage.) making moves on her man. I am personally not afraid of your standard house cat, but when smashing the thing between a door and the wall only makes it angry - well I'd go and get a bat. Watching a horde of cats staring intently at something off camera, which I suspect was a mouse toy or little tuft of fur on a string, is funny. Now imagine actors trying to get into the role while being stalked by the cameraman, great stuff! One scene really jumps to mind, when the Alpha Cat is trying to scratch it's way through a pillow to get at Lindsey and Tessa. There is obviously someone crouched under the camera and using a pair of sticks with cat paws on the end. (I kid you not, almost fell off the couch laughing.) Perhaps the perfect use for this film is torturing your own cat, just turn up the surround sound and watch it run wild trying to figure out what the heck is going on. |
