Cries in the Night (1980)


Renamed as "Funeral Home" two years after its initial release, William Fruet's Canadian "Psycho" clone features a black cat who would be more at home in an Edgar Allan Poe adaptation.

Although it seems that Mittens (who was trained by Karl Mitchell) only appears just to scare Heather (Lesleh Donaldson) for no apparent reason, eventually it becomes clear that the cat is trying to tell her something.

When ill-fated handyman Billy Hibbs (Stephen Miller) follows the noisy cat into the cellar, a macabre secret is revealed.
