A reporter, (Musante), witnesses a girl's, (Renzi), murder and is relentlessly pursued by
the killer who sends him a recorded warning to leave Rome. When the killer threatens to
kill his girlfriend the reporter remembers hearing the sound of a strange bird on the tape
he was sent which is the call of a very rare species that traces the murderer's
whereabouts. The reporter later discovers that the murder he saw was actually a case of
self defence and the victim was really the murderess whose husband has been covering up
her crimes. A painting inspired by a brutal assault earlier in her life brought on a
psychosis that caused the woman to kill pretty young girls.
A fast paced "giallo" thriller executed with Argento's usual eye for gore
accompanied by an inappropriate music score. The surreal murder shots weaken the strong

gigantic monster that runs amok absorbing power and any weapons fired at it. The
Astroflying Centre at Mount Fuji gathers the anti-matter element Guilalaium from deep
space, shrinking the creature to its original size after which it is sent back into space.
The effects fail to live up to the usual Japanese standard as another laughable rubber
monster suited actor stomps again on miniature Tokyo.

Mr. Wilbur Gray, (Cushing) approaches his publisher, (Milland), to print the book of tales
he has written explaining his fear of cats and why he believes they want to control
A maid and her lover kill the mistress of the household to try and recover her will that
makes them heirs to the woman's fortune. The lady's family of cats attack the couple and
trap them in the cellar while they feed on the old woman's corpse waiting for the killers
An orphan girl named Lucy, (Holden), moves in with her aunt only to be tormented by the
aunt's spiteful daughter who doesn't realise that Lucy is a witch. When the girl harms
Lucy's black cat, the young witch shrinks her to the size of a mouse, lets her cat play
with the girl and then sqaushes her underfoot.
Horror film star Valentine D'Ath, (Pleasence), kills his wife and their cat's litter of
newborn kittens when he leaves with his lover, but the cat follows them, rips out his
tounge and closes an iron maiden on the woman while she is rehearsing for a play.
The publisher is sceptical of Mr. Gray's tales, but when the frightened man leaves the
office he is attacked by the neighbourhood cats and the publisher is willed by his own cat
to burn Gray's manuscript.
Although there are a few good moments in this average compedium, the film is spoilt by the
unconvincing premise and a host of not very frightening felines.

discover her previous incarnations throughout history. The girl reveals herself to be in

witch, (Hayes), of the time prepares for the appearance of the Devil, (Devon), who
commends the scientist for dabbling in his art, but after the woman is executed as history
dictates, the Devil informs the scientist that he cannot return to his own time.

charm all it's own and permeated with a wry sense of humour.
