Pretensioso, artificial e com uma péssima atriz como protagonista, o filme empalidece frente à refilmagem comandada por Paul Schrader.
| Original Score: 2/5

Unpleasant film argues we should be afraid of people who are different.

Ladies who have such temptations -- in straight horror pictures, at least -- should exercise their digits a bit more freely than does Simone Simon in this film.

[Cat People's] masterstroke lies in a constant awareness of its audience, using their expectations of its B-movie horror title to draw out the film's tension.

While Cat People isn't among the scariest films ever made, there are a trio of truly suspenseful scenes which, quite ingeniously, leave just enough up to the audience's imagination to dial up the tension.

I do like a film that opens with a mission statement, and... Cat People starts thus: "Even as fog continues to lie in the valleys, so does ancient sin cling to the low places, the depressions in the world consciousness."

Cat People wasn't frightening like a slasher movie, using shocks and gore, but frightening in an eerie, mysterious way that was hard to define; the screen harbored unseen threats.

Female sexuality is a rich source of a certain kind of horror - the kind of horror that plays upon the anxieties that prudish bourgeois men have about their wives' sex lives.

As well as being scary, the film deals intelligently with sex and the psyche.

First in the wondrous series of B movies in which Val Lewton elaborated his principle of horrors imagined rather than seen, with a superbly judged performance from Simon.
January 23, 2014
Val Lewton's most brilliant and subtly sexual horror films ever made.

This is a weird drama of thrill-chill caliber.
