For their wedding anniversary, his wife Diana (Robyn Baker) gives Lou (Robert Frost) a black cat, which Lou instantly loves, even to the point of neglecting his other pets. However, the cat, Pluto, soon turns out the worst sides in Lou as he soon starts drinking heavily and behaving violently towards his wife. Eventually he figures his turn to the worse has been caused by Pluto, who he thinks is a reborn witch with an evil eye. So at first he cuts out the cat's eye, and when that doesn't help he electrocutes Pluto ... only the electrocution causes Lou and Diana's house to burn down over night.

When later his solicitor tells him the house was not insured and he has pretty much lost all his fortunes in one sweep, he tries to strangle the solicitor ... and is therefore admitted to a sanitarium.

Only after several months is Lou presumed healed and released from the sanitarium and into the arms of his wife Diana, who despite everything stayed with him during all the time.

At first, it seems Lou is a new man, but soon he takes to drinking again, and with his newfound alcoholism soon come more fits of rage ... and eventually he finds another black cat whom he thinks to be Pluto reborn to mock him ... and in a desperate attempt to kill Pluto reborn, he accidently kills his wife. And to not be arrested for murder, Lou soon figures he has to wall up his wife's body ...

A few days later, the police does actually stop by on behalf of a missing person report,but at first, tey are unable to find anything, until, from behind the wall in the cellar, they hear bizarre screams ... and when they tear down the wall, yup, it turns out that Lou has walled up the black cat along with his wife's body ...

Lou makes an escape in his car, but ultimately he loses control over the vehicle when he sees a black cat sitting on the road and dies in the ensuing car crash.


Edgar Allan Poe's classic horror tale done as a b-picture in contemporary settings ... and as a cheap little shocker with quite a bit of gore, the film works rather well, even if the too low budget and some wooden performances keep the film from developing to full force. Still, if you are willing to overlook some shortcomings, you might find this one very entertaining.
