At a secluded biochemical lab, which runs cruel tests on animals, a seemingly innocent looking cat has just escaped, but beneath its furry exterior, a terrifying monster has been seeded, emerging to brutally maim and kill anyone it finds threatening. Discovered by a group of teenage spring breakers and brought aboard a luxury yacht bound for the Cayman Islands, the cuddly fluff ball quickly begins gnawing away at the ship's guests and crew. But to make matters even worse, it's soon revealed that the cruise's host, a renowned multimillionaire, is in fact on the run from the law and won't return the boat to shore, killer mutant cat be damned!
A mind-boggling piece of late 80s horror weirdness, mixing low-fi creature effects, explosive gore, crime thriller subplots, and a fairly logical cat monster, Greydon Clark's (JOYSTICKS) UNINVITED stars George Kennedy (DEATH SHIP), Alex Cord (THE DEAD ARE ALIVE), and legendary character actor Clu Gulager (RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD). Vinegar Syndrome proudly brings this video store classic to Blu-ray, newly restored in 4k from its 35mm camera negative and includes a previously unreleased international cut which features exclusive footage, including an alternate ending!
