"Cathy..., are you gonna tell me what went on here?"

To really appreciate this film after the fact, you really have to read through some of the reviews for it posted here on IMDb. Fans of this type of celluloid trash will convince you that watching the picture is one of the most productive things you can do with your valuable time. "Cathy's Curse" just barely misses making my all time Top Ten list of worst movies ever, but not because it didn't try. Others have explained what the story is all about, so no need for me to rehash it. But to give you an idea how poorly made this picture is, I'll recount my favorite scene. It's when the old geezer of a butler Paul (Roy Witham) finds that he's locked out of a room in the Gimble mansion and tries to force his way in. The first time he puts his shoulder into the door, it opens just fine, but seeing as how it had to be a more difficult task, he pulls the door shut and tries again! Definitely a scene to rewind and watch again and again. As for the title character Cathy - cute kid, foul mouth. Actress Randi Allen has nothing on Linda Blair. My viewing copy came out of one of those DVD four-packs with minimal standards that featured a prominent greenish cast for it's entirety. The set was titled 'Beyond the Grave', and if you're lucky enough to find it, this flick is sandwiched in between "Beast of the Yellow Night" and "Crypt of the Living Dead". Have fun!

Cauchemars

Cauchemars (nightmares in french, no "e" in word) was made using the tax credits afforded by Quebec and Canada governments; even if in co-production with France, it was made in English, in Westmount (rich English section in Montreal) with a ridiculous budget(The production co. doesn't exist anymore). Acting is really bad (but I suppose acting direction was also!). This is a bad "b" movie. Only for collectors of such genre (90% of action evolves in or around the house!). French actor Hubert Noel, who played the role of the doctor, dubbed the voice of Prentiss Hancock in the french (Quebec) version of Space:1999. You can find this movie in DVD collections (like 20 movies on 10 double-sided discs). Won't make history...

Why does it show the title twice?

Hokey supernatural thriller about the possession of an innocent little girl by the spirit of a mean-spirited little girl who died in a car crash, and who would've grown up to be the first girl's aunt. The possessed girl now seems to have powers that equal those of the Antichrist in the "Omen" films, although how she got them is never explained, and we also never understand what exactly she is trying to accomplish with her random killings (she even kills the dog!). The film is totally unbelievable and ineptly edited, but there is the occasional effective moment (the scene with the spiders may give you the willies). (*1/2)
