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.

"“Cat People is a great example of necessity being the mother of invention…. It does create a strange spell over you, those shots of Simone Simon during the therapy session, where there’s just a pan of light on her face.” - Alec Baldwin “It was made for peanuts and yet it has great power. Practically the whole movie is in shadow…. That adds to the mood of the film, but it also is very economical because then you don’t have to decorate the whole set.” - Robert Osbourne "
