Synopsis: Comedy horror film in which an ancient evil cat spirit escapes from captivity and runs amok unless the man destined to banish it forever can train a new protégé.

Kitty Cameo: Despite the film’s title the Evil Cat is never truly in the shape of a cat apart from some quick animation showing it flying from body to body in spirit form.

There is only one true cat in the film that shows up for no discernable reason.  A famous singing star is seen leaving his recording session and walks down the stairs to the front door where a group of fans have gathered.  A small gray cat is seen sitting on the banister above the stairs and meows, although the evil cat spirit does not seem to be inside the cat at the time.

Final Mewsings: Demons that impersonate cats truly are evil.
