Stars: Peter Cushing, Ray Milland, Susan Penhaligon

An author tells his publisher three stories about evil cats

Wilbur Gray tries to convince publisher Frank Richards to print his book which posits that there exists a conspiracy of cats against human beings. To prove his thesis he quotes several case studies. First, a wealthy woman who wrote a will leaving all her money to her cats, whereupon her nephew and maid conspired to kill her and destroy the will, only to have the cats take revenge.

The second case is of young Lucy who went to live with her aunt and uncle after the death of her parents but who had to contend with her cousin Angela who made her life a misery, and took revenge by using black magic to shrink Angela until she was a toy-thing of her cat.

The third story is of horror actor Valentine De’ath and his lover who conspired to kill his wife but who reckoned without her cat.
