The emotional arousal of the original is replaced with sexual arousal and what we have is an erotic gorefest that should not have been made.

nothing if not interesting, and it has several sequences that are genuinely electrifying and audacious

When it's not going for outlandish smut, Cat People is a shambling bore.

Most guys like it for the full frontal nudity and the kinky "tie me up" sex scene, but it is an interesting film to watch for other reasons.

The late, great Ferdinando Scarfiotti's elaborate set designs imagine New Orleans as a post-feminist kingdom whose traditions are on the brink of destruction.

You just can't understand what it's supposed to be about or why the hell anyone felt the need to devote time and money to creating it.

Schrader's take sure is ... different, but I mean that as a compliment.

The result has a certain cinematic beauty, and Kinski, in particular, plays her role with an appropriate cat-like presence. Yet alongside the 1942 version (produced by Val Lewton, directed by Jaques Tourneur) it is clear which one is the winner.
