A classic

When you watch this flick, you have to keep in mind you are actually watching one of the very first ancestors of our contemporary horror movies. It is quite amazing to see how much have change in 70 years. Back then, there was no sex, no blood, actually almost nothing happens here when you think about it. They did it mostly because they basically had no money but it is actually what makes it even ... read more

" Despite cheap B production, "Cat People" seems ahead of its time to me. Direction excited me with clever uses of shadows, lighting and sound. Climatic pool scene (as well as the bus scene) is the best example of usage of all three at once. Story was another thing appealing to me.

Her backgroung was particularly interesting to me, as she has Serbian descent and w"

""There are some things a woman doesn't want other women to understand." It's easy to see the influence of Film Noir on Jacques Tourneur's classic and the results are almost unparalleled in the genre. Cat people is a stunning film, through and through. That said, the appeal of this movie is that the horror comes from a more dramatic narrative. It's a film about repressed sexuality and the fear of one's own body and insecurities. It's also groundbreaking in that it was one of the first that too"
