Cat Out of the Bag Alert! This review contains some spoilers for this film!
Synopsis: Sam Wheat (Patrick Swayze) and Molly Jensen (Demi Moore) are passionately in love but when Sam is suddenly murdered he finds himself as a ghostly observer and quickly realizes that her life may also be in danger.
Featured Feline: Molly owns a tabby cat named Floyd. We first see Floyd in a scene in which Molly and Sam are in bed together after moving into their new loft apartment.
After Sam dies, Floyd is seen in the foreground of the loft after Sam’s funeral.
Later, Molly is sitting at her pottery wheel with Sam sitting nearby. Floyd is also in the room.
As Sam moves closer to Molly, Floyd suddenly hisses violently.
Realizing the cat can sense him, Sam puts his face close to Floyd’s and stares into Floyd’s eyes. Floyd screeches and runs away.
Later Sam sees his murderer (Rick Aviles) breaking into the loft apartment. Molly returns home, not realizing the man is there. She walks up the stairs and pets Floyd briefly before going into her bedroom. The man is hiding behind a corner.
Sam pushes his face in close to Floyd’s again.
Sam then screams in Floyd’s face.
Floyd reacts and leaps away from Sam into the face of the killer, chasing him off!
Final Mewsings: Cats don’t like it when ghosts invade their personal space.
