CURSE OF THE CAT PEOPLE (1944) / CAT PEOPLE (1942) - DVD
CAT PEOPLE (1942) Stars Simone Simon, Kent Smith, Tom Conway, Jane Randolph and Elizabeth Russell. Val Lewton's first impact in the horror film genre, and what an impact! A man falls in love with a mysterious, reclusive young woman who believes she is part of a demonic background. Part of a weird breed of creatures that turn into cats and must kill. A strtange web of mystery, wonderfully photographed with shocks and mounting dread.
THE CURSE OF THE CAT PEOPLE (1944) An intriguing tale, beautifully filmed in a style that bears more resemblance to a Grimm?s fairytale than horror, with a mesmerizing performance from Ann Carter. This is her film and she is strong and convincing in the role. The exploration of the insecurity of the child coupled with a troubled relationship with her father is fascinating. The expectation of a "horror" film with the suggestive title is also misleading. This is ultimately a surprisingly sensitive and uniquely haunting film that would appeal on many levels.
