A classic

Since this movie was included in the โ€˜1001 Movies You Must See Before You Dieโ€™ 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. Back then, there was basically no sex, no blood, in ... read more

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.

Horror Films Of The 1940's (12 movies items)

"This is easily the most famous of the line of horror films produced by RKO Radio Pictures and Val Lewton in the 40's. And while it's a decent picture, I certainly think that the studio produced several, much better offerings within the period. Still, it's a beautifully shot film, that has it's moments of atmospheric fright, and a solid cast. Simone Simon is especially magnetic in the lead role, at the same time alluring and sympathetic. However, due to the special effects constraints of the day,"

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 "
