Foregoing the horror thrills of its predecessor in favor of childhood fantasy, Curse of the Cat People is a touching and psychologically complex family film couched in a ghost story.

Made as sequel to the profitable Cat People, this is highly disappointing because it fails to measure up as a horrific opus.
Hardly a moment is wasted.
Far from being a horror film, it's a touching, perceptive and lyrical film about childhood, psychologically astute and occasionally disturbing as it focuses entirely on the child's-eye view of a sad, cruel world.
It makes a rare departure from the ordinary run of horror films and emerges as an oddly touching study of the working of a sensitive child's mind.
One of the most curious sequels ever made.
Unexpectedly perceptive in its sympathetic observance of the pangs of childhood and the wondrous possibilities of imagination.
Despite the snazzy title... Curse of the Cat People has as much pity and tears in it as chills.
A film that takes the business of childhood completely seriously and aligns itself to a child's perspective with absolute conviction.
Mysteries and meanings to curl around each other like creeping vines.
Old-fashioned horror fantasy isn't too scary for tweens.
One of those movies that coheres more interestingly because of its own odd heterogeneities, largely because the brio and friskiness of the filmmaking remain fairly constant over the short 70 minutes, even as the idioms keep moving around.
A remarkably elusive picture, a producer-auteur's personal summarization, a gold mine for later fabulists
A bad sequel, it doesn't have anything to do with the first one really, and it's silly. I don't recommend this movie.
The words "horrible sequel to a great movie" spring to mind when trying to describe Curse of the Cat People. Taking place several years after the original, Kent Smith and Jane Randolph have settled down in the suburbs, had a weird (mostly because Smith turned into a total dick) kid and generally gave up on life. The action (a word used very loosely) mostly follows said weird kid Amy who creates an imaginary friend in Simone Simon from the first Cat People and hangs out at the house of a nutty has-been actress in some kind of odd emotional struggle with her creepy yet foxy daughter. Robert Wise's (co-) directorial outing shows some real promise of what was to come from one of the world's most underrated directors with some really beautiful imagery in the back yard scenes. If you like child psychology mixed in with your suspense you're in for a real treat but otherwise its a completely pointless sequel. The good news is that The Curse of the Cat People will only eat a little over an hour of your time should you feel the overwhelming need to see it, but no matter what anyone says they should've let it go with the first.
(Review coming soon)
Inaccurately titled sequel to Cat People is not a horror film and more importantly, doesn't even feature any cat people. However, this gorgeous fantasy film is just as potent in creating mood as its predecessor and deserves to be treated as a classic in its own right. Atmospheric film is enchanting look into the mind of a child. It's amazing the six-year-old protagonist, Ann Carter, didn't become a bigger star. She is memorable.
