Starring Andre Morell (Cash on Demand) and Barbara Shelley (The Camp on Blood Island), The Shadow of the Cat is an atmospheric ‘old dark house’ tale of feline revenge.

When the wealthy Ella Venable (Catherine Lacey) is murdered at the behest of her husband, Walter (Morell), the only witness is her beloved cat, Tabitha. As Ella’s niece Beth (Shelley) attempts to uncover the truth, Walter and his accomplices fall foul of a series of cat-related ‘accidents’...

Directed by John Gilling (The Scarlet Blade) and with cinematography by Arthur Grant (The Phantom of the Opera), The Shadow of the Cat is a classic Gothic chiller from Hammer.
