Wow. This movie.

From beginning to end, UNINVITED proves that where there is a will, there is a way...or maybe that's "where there is a killer cat puppet, there is a way"? No matter. The UNINVITED is sheer nonsense, but that does not take anything away from the amount of fun you have while watching it.

You like older actors whose best work is behind them? We got George "Airport" Kennedy and Clu "The Killers" Gulager stomping about the sets, chewing enough furniture between them to choke an animal that eats a lot of furniture.

You like scantily clad ingenues dancercizing to phony disco? We got Clare Carey and Shari Shattuck moving their groove thangs to the whitest music this side of whatever Ed Harris danced to in George Romero's CREEPSHOW.

You like actors being asked to wrestle with shabby looking puppets? Check. How's about actor's covered in blood and air-bladder powered SFX prosthetics? Check.

UNINVITED may not be the greatest horror movie of the 1980s, but it's got a lot of character and gumption, and you have to admire it for those traits. You'll be rather incredulous at the utterly ridiculous way in which the killer cat dispatches the humans trapped on a yacht in the middle of the Caribbean, but there are some great moments stuck here and there. The cat-thing chewing on George Kennedy's foot is a pretty gooey effect, as is the way in which the "poison" works its way through his body. Clu Gulager trying to fight off the cat-thing with a broken bottle and the weirdest set of buck teeth is also a hoot. His demise is puffy and squirty and rather gross.

For those for you who want "messages" in their movies, you've got the go-to villain of the 1980s on board: the repulsive rich guy who will stop at nothing to make his way to the Caymans so he can escape the SEC and make a lot of money and grab the girls' tushies with extreme prejudice. His demise is a welcome and ironic moment.

On top of all that, UNINVITED is quite possibly the only film in history that brings together two mutually exclusive groups: cat lovers and cat haters.

See? Something for everyone.

If a very very very bad movie about a mutant psycho kitty makes you happy (as it does me) then this is the film for you. Also, it stars George Kennedy. Our killer kitty alternates between regular. amiable, fluffy feline trotting past the camera and very very very bad kitty puppet. If one is looking for something "different" to watch while under the influence of something or other, this could also be the mind-bending homicidal feline flick of your dreams.

1980's straight-to-video ridiculousness. Alright, maybe it also played on cable. Uninvited is more fun than it ought to be.

2.5 Stars

One of the most compelling AIDS allegories to come out of the 1980s

Yes..yes, murder mittens are definitely my cup of tea.

Ridiculous amazing nonsense. You owe it to yourself to watch.

wow. uninvited. ill say.

greydon clark could make fun b-movie cheapies (WITHOUT WARNING is a personal favorite) but this one stretches the limits.

still, it was fun to see kennedy reprising his red leary role from thunderbolt and lightfoot; the angry and intolerant thief with an itchy trigger finger. clu galager is always wackily entertaining and alex cord makes a pretty good douchebag.

still, i watched this thing while i was working and only through the corner of my eye. doesnt warrant more attention than that.

clare carey was gorgeous too. very much so.
