Seven Deaths in the Cat's Eye
Directed by Antonio Margheriti
Castles, cats, and curses feature in the plot of this gothic Italian horror favorite starring iconic actress Jane Birkin (BLOW-UP). When young Corringa returns from school to her family’s ancestral castle, her arrival sets off a series of murders. It seems within the castle’s walls lurks unspeakable evil and someone with a taste for terror. Is the killer connected to her family’s past? A vampire? Or maybe it’s that odd orangutan... Antonio Margheriti (THE LONG HAIR OF DEATH) draws the mystery out slowly, almost sadistically, before revealing the terrifying truth.

Two thumbs up!
Fantastic little Giallo...it was very Poe
I loved it! I am a sucker for good Gothic horror. And I agree that the cat was adorable and stole the show.
Italian horror with solid gothic atmosphere and a standard but entertaining Giallo story line. Also the big orange cat is adorable. I remember having the same reaction to the big orange cat that appears briefly in Inferno. No creep factor there either, just cuddly.
