Cat Out of the Bag Alert! This review contains some spoilers for this film!
Synopsis: Frank (John Ryan) and Lenore Davis (Sharol Farrell) are eagerly anticipating the birth of their second child. But neither is prepared when the baby comes out screaming, clawing and killing.
Kitty Cameo: In one of the earliest scenes, Frank steps into the room of his son Chris (Daniel Holzman) to wake him up and tell him it’s time to go to his Uncle Charlie’s house while he takes his mom to the hospital to give birth. Chris is lying in bed sleeping with his pet Siamese cat.
Frank picks up the cat and rubs it against Chris’ face to wake him up.
The cat is not seen again until much later in the movie when the mutant baby finds its way to the Davis’ home. The cat is seen in Chris’ room as the mutant baby is crawling around. The cat yowls and runs away.
Kitty Carnage Warning! When Chris returns home and enters the basement he finds the cat lying dead on the floor in a pool of blood. Bad baby!
Final Mewsings: Cats don’t need help to wake people up.
