Antagony & Ecstasy

The film has atmosphere to spare... [but] uses it like a crutch for a story that doesn't work on its own.

Comes with one of the cinema's most shocking murder scenes, with barely anything actually shown.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

While not as challenging or thematically dense as the other Lewton/Tourneur masterworks, there are individual sequences in The Leopard Man that refuse to fade from memory.

Tourneur ... manages to produce RKO's usual heady layer of ominous atmosphere on a minimal budget, but the script's explanation of the attacks ends up letting him down.

There's a certain multi-cultural conflict that distinguishes the Lewton-Tourneurs.

Not a starry cast, but good acting and some real jump-out-of-the-seat moments.

epending for much of its effect on a subtle and poetic nudging of the spectator's imagination, the film has a couple of sequences that are truly terrifying.

It's all confusion, in fact too much for an audience to follow.

Half-baked efforts such as this one provoke little more than a yawn.
