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

"Though I felt much of the potential psychological elements had been downplayed here, Cat People is a remarkable RKO horror classic, with a great lead performance by Simone Simon and absolutely ingenious camerawork. "

Rediscovering Horror: a new project (26 movies items)

"Viewed on: August 22 2012 A very good performance by Simone Simon. She is plagued by the belief that she will be subject to an evil curse if she allows herself to fall in love. Some really good scenes, and very good use of black and white to enhance lighting and shadows. Much of the film takes place in low light with high shadowy contrast. "

"Classic old Jacques Tourneur / Val Lewton chiller, far better than the pretty dreadful remake. For the most part it's more of a psychological drama than anything but a terrific last half an hour with at least two memorable scenes ends things memorably. Simone Simon was delightfully beautiful."

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 more effective. There is indeed constantly this eerie atmosphere which is not really frightening but still makes you uneasey throughout the whole thing. To show the impact of this flick, you have to know that the horror movie technique of slowly building tension to a jarring shock which turns out to be something completely harmless and benign became known as a "Lewton bus" after a famous scene in ” read more
