PsychoCatFilter: So my roommate has a demon for a cat…

A friend of mine has been staying with us in our spare room for a few months while trying to get back on his feet. Everything about the situation is great - except for his cat. She is two years old and while she loves my roommate, she absolutely hates anyone else with a passion.
If she sees my husband or I even so much as glance at her she starts hissing. If we get close or start talking, which is usually because we need to walk by her to get somewhere, she growls quite loudly. And god forbid we linger in her vicinity; she will yowl/scream and basically try to attack us.
We both love animals would like nothing better than to be friends with this cat. We haven’t done anything to her at all; we generally keep our distance and leave her alone because she goes into a conniption if we even look at her. We have two cats ourselves and even they both stay far, far away from the other cat.
I’d like to be friends with this cat, but I am starting to get really tired of it hissing, growling and pretty much throwing a fit every time we go into the same room. Is there any sure-fire way to make friends with it? Or, barring that, make it respect us so it doesn’t at least keep trying to attack us?
