TFR: The Lost Tapes – The Whimsical World of Mary Crawford

Welcome to another Lost Tapes edition of The Film Room!

This time we gaze into a mouth-shaped deep, dark abyss; we watch David DeCoteau’s A Talking Cat!?! (punctuation not ours), a family film that features notable actor Eric Roberts as the titular talking cat(!?!). Did we mention it was shot on the same set as some (extremely) soft core porn? By the same director? Did we?

After tumbling down the no-budget no-effort film hole, we try to climb our way back out by thoroughly picking it, and the importance of base filmmaking, apart at the seams.

This is The Whimsical World of Mary Crawford!
