Cat Out of the Bag Alert!  This review contains some spoilers for this film!

Synopsis: An Irish ghost story is brought to life when a stranded motorist named Sean Merriman (Michael Laurence) relates an eerie tale to Orson Welles.

Kitty Cameo: Sean explains about going to the home called Glennascaul with two women he picked up on the road. After leaving the home, he remembers that he forgot his cigarette case and returns only to find the gates shut and rusty. He squeezes through the gates and is crossing the overgrown yard when he hears a noise. He shines his flashlight upon a stray tortoiseshell cat who seems startled and then runs away.
