This forgettable piece of crap is only worth mentioning because it was the last film role performed by the legendary Bette Davis. She and Barbara Carrera play a mother-daughter team of witches who can never both be human at the same time, the one occupying human form while the other’s personality resides in the body of a cat. Davis marries an elderly widower and looks to take over his wealthy life until his daughter (Colleen Camp) catches on to the fact that her new stepmother and stepsister are something out of the ordinary. The film is neither clever nor funny, the jokes falling flat and the script a complete mess, but anyone who is a fan of this incredible woman and her impressive career shouldn’t miss it; Davis’s constant desire to stay on camera is impressive considering she was already dying of cancer during filming and passed away months after it was completed. Also features the final performance of Evelyn Keyes.
