The Cat and the Canary (1979)

In the prologue to this comedy-mystery, a tuxedo cat stalks a caged canary but comes to a very nasty end.

The gratuitously lingering shot of the cat's hanging body paves the way for more violence to come but will deter most sane people from watching any more of Radley Metzger's remake.

Released in the USA in 1978, a year earlier than in the UK.
