From the macabre imagination of Stephen King comes this trio of terrifying tales.
In the first episode, a New York man has trouble giving up cigarettes. He turns to a shady self-help operation whose hotheaded owner outlines a litany of incrementally harsh penalties for those who cannot resist having another puff.

The second story centers on Cressner, a mobster who works Atlantic City. His wife has been having an affair with a tennis pro, so Cressner forces the athlete to walk the ledge around his apartment high-rise. If the athlete can complete one lap along the overhang, he gets to be with Cressner's wife forever.
A young girl, 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...

Three wry and shocking Stephen King short stories are linked by a stray cat which roams from one tale to the next. The stories feature James Woods attempting to quit smoking by any means necessary, Robert Hays being forced to circle a building's hazardous ledge, and Drew Barrymore threatened by a tiny gnome.

"Cat's Eye" began during the film adaptation of author Stephen King's "Firestarter," also a Dino De Laurentiis production.

De Laurentiis solicited King to write another vehicle for actress Drew Barrymore. King returned with an idea about a girl and the pet cat that guards her from a mischievous troll.

Because this material did not warrant a feature-length project, King adapted two short stories from his anthology "Night Shift" -- "Quitters, Inc." and "The Ledge" -- to comprise "Cat's Eye."

After a string of hysterical tests, the Feds grant Sobel permission to observe Vitti as a patient and, much to the dismay of Sobol's wife Laura (Lisa Kudrow), as a house guest. However, Sobel has problems of his own. He's suffering from a severe identity crisis after the death of his father, and Vitti's presence in his suburban New Jersey home has the psychiatrist acting crazy too. In an effort to straighten Vitti out, Sobel decides that the solution is to find him a real, honest job. Vitti tries his hand at several ill-matched professions, and finally finds his dream job as a technical advisor on a SOPRANOS-like cable television show. Everything is going smoothly until Vitti starts to take the show a little too seriously, calling his former mafia cohorts to the set. A raucous comedic event that uses the chemistry between De Niro and Crystal to great effect, ANALYZE THAT is yet another knee-slapping gem from director Harold Ramis!!
