Film Series: Cat People

1942. USA. Dir: Jacques Tourneur. With Simone Simon, Kent Smith. 73 min.



In this twisted fable about the caging of female sexuality, a woman with a fascination for large felines meets a well-to-do fella, falls in love, and gets married. Yet as the two find trouble consummating their nuptials, hubby’s eyes wander and the new bride shows signs that she might actually be a mystical cat-human hybrid…on the prowl for blood.
