A classic

Since this movie was included in the ‘1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die’ list, I was really eager to check it out. First of all, when you watch this flick, you have to keep in mind that you are actually watching one of the first ancestors of our contemporary horror movies and it was pretty neat to see how much have changed in 70 years.

Irena Dubrovna, a beautiful and mysterious Serbian-born fashion artist living in New York City, falls in love with and marries average-Joe American Oliver Reed. Their marriage suffers though, as Irena believes that she suffers from an ancient curse- whenever emotionally aroused, she will turn into a panther and kill. Oliver thinks that is absurd and childish, so he sends her to psychiatrist Dr. Judd to cure her.

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"Cat People lyrically and metaphysically gives prominence to its sense of atmosphere, occasionally suggesting a film noir in its velvety chiaroscuro. Producer Val Lewton and director Jacques Tourneur borrow freely from German Expressionism, from Murnau, Lang, and Wiene, but its original story ensures that it will never derivative. RKO demanded Lewton make a film called Cat People, but rather than phone in a hokey monster movie, he delivered a complex tale of cultural dislocation that homes in on "

"Tästähän on melkein kaikki oleellinen jo sanottu tunnelmansa ja näyttävyytensä osalta. Aikoinaan varmasti melko häkellyttävää tavaraa, ja en voi sanoa tämän vanhentuneen kovinkaan pahasti."

"20.6. Yle Areena En oikein tahtonut saada tästä kiinni. Alusta alkaen tuntui, kuin olisin nähnyt tämän ennenkin ja tuntui tuo muutenkin vähän höntiltä. Valolla ja varjoilla leikittelee hienosti ja lopetus oli kyllä vallan mukava."

"Kuten toveri Kurkkuharja, myös minä mietin Kissaihmisiä. Kuin ihmeen kaupalla se pamahti sitten ulos teemalta. Lyhyt mutta tunnelmallinen ja juuri sellainen pahanenteinen kuin toverini tuossa omassa päivyrissään jo sanoikin. "

"6.6. (PC/Yle Areena) Outoa että juuri kun mietin, että haluan nähdä tämän ja pitänee kai tilata Briteistä DVD:llä kun muualla ei näy, niin pistivät Teemalta tulemaan. Ehkä seuraavaksi kannattaa alkaa miettiä The Thing From Another Worldia. Tai I Walked With a Zombieta. Tai Last Tango in Parisia. Tai Spermulaa. Niin joo. Tuon kirjoitettuani kävin tsekkaamassa kesän elokuvatarjontaa kanavan sivuilta. Mikäpä muukaan siellä ponnahti silmille, kuin I Walked With a Zombie... Hyvä"
