Cat Out of the Bag Alert! This review contains spoilers for this film!
Synopsis: Joel Campbell (James Spader) is an FBI agent tormented by memories of the serial killer he could not catch. Only the killer has come looking for him seeking to continue their game of cat and mouse.
Kitty Cameo: Killer David Allen Griffin (Keanu Reeves) targets a girl named Ellie (Rebekah Louise Smith) who works in a photo shop. We see Ellie as she returns to her apartment and calls for someone named Frank. Frank turns out to be her Himalayan cat.
Frank is curled up with Ellie on her couch when the phone rings.
Ellie sets Frank down before picking up the phone. As Ellie talks on the phone Frank wanders down the hallway where Griffin is waiting.
Griffin pets the cat, which purrs.
When the police arrive on the scene they note the absence of Ellie’s pet cat Frank. Later in the film Frank is seen in Griffin’s car as Griffin is petting the cat. Strangely enough Frank never appears again so we don’t know what ultimately happens to him.
Final Mewsings: Cats are not always the best judge of character.
