Shadows In the DarkReviewed bybsmith5552Vote: 7/10

"Cat People" was the first of nine horror movies from the RKO "B" unit headed by the legendary Val Lewton. Lewton had worked for the unpredictable Davis O. Selznick in the 1930s. Lewton left Selznick (who wouldn't have) and was offered a chance to head up his own "B" unit at RKO. And the rest as they say is history.

Irena (Simone Simon) and Oliver (Kent Smith) meet at a zoo where she is sketching pictures of a black panther. Oliver is immediately attracted to the mysterious Irena and they marry. When Irena is unable to consummate their marriage, Oliver tries to be understanding. It seems Irena descends from a people whose women turn into black panthers when aroused or angered. As corny as it sounds, the premise actually works under the able direction of Jacques Tourneur and the supervision of Lewton.

Alice Moore (Jane Randolph) works with Oliver and confesses her love for him. Irena meanwhile, has sought out help from psychiatrist Dr. Louis Judd (Tom Conway). Oliver in the meantime has come to love Alice and tells Irena that their marriage is over. Irena becomes jealous of Alice and you know what that means.

In two of the film's classic scenes, Lewton gives us the first of his "shadows in the dark" scares. First, Irena follows Alice through the park at night and suddenly Alice becomes aware that "something" is following her. We never see what we believe to be a panther but only subtle suggestions of same.

The second sequence takes place in the swimming pool at Alice's apartment building. Irena follows Alice to the pool area. Again, Alice senses that something is stalking her and she jumps into the pool for protection and begins to yell for help. The scene ends with Irena turning on the light and asking Alice if she has seen Oliver. Irena leaves and Alice discovers that her bathrobe has been torn to shreds.

A third such scene takes place at Oliver and Alice's office when we clearly see a black panther stalking the pair. Later, Dr. Judd who turns out to be a let ch tries to seduce Irena. She suddenly begins to change and............

Lewton was able to create terror in the minds of his audience through skillful use darkness, shadows and suggestion. We never actually see any monster in the films key fright scenes. It lives in the imaginations of his audience. He did this on a "B" picture budget with a limited shooting schedule.

The performances are excellent. Simon was chosen for the lead because of her cat-like features and turns in the performance of her career. Smith is adequate as the understanding (to a point) husband. Randolph as the "other woman" plays well against the Simon character. Conway does what he can with the limited role of Dr. Judd. Jack Holt puts in a brief appearance as Smith and Randolph's boss.

Followed by "The Curse of the Cat People" (1944).

Beautiful, Eerie and Utterly Fascinating ClassicReviewed byWitchfinder-General-666Vote: 10/10

"Cat People" is, without doubt, one of the most influential and fascinating classics the great genre of Horror has ever brought forth. This film is the brilliant collaboration of two of cinema's most ingenious minds - the first film produced by legendary producer Val Lewton, "Cat People" is doubtlessly also the greatest work of director Jacques Tourneur. The film, which tells a uniquely fascinating tale, is probably the best example of indicated terror. While we never actually see a drop of blood shed, Tourneur's brilliant sense for atmosphere and cinematographic style creates unspeakable eeriness by the mere use of shadows, light and darkness.

The film tells the story of the incredibly beautiful young Irena (Simone Simon). The young Serbian woman has come to America to flee the haunting legends of her hometown. When she meets a man and gets married, she remains frigid into the marriage, terrified that the loss of her virginity will turn her into something evil... Without giving too much of the story away, I can say that "Cat People" tells one of the most haunting and fascinating stories in classic Horror cinema. After the classic period of the Universal Monster films, this masterpiece heralds the time of Val Lewton's magnificent Horror films. Simone Simon is one of the most beautiful actresses of all time and she is absolutely stunning in her role here - her character of the haunted young Irena is very lovable. She seems very innocent and young, it is hard to believe she was already 32 when this film was made. The rest of the cast are also great, Kent Smith, Tom Corway and Jane Randolph all deliver very good performances. It is still Simone Simon who has all the attention. "Cat People" is a wonderfully cinematic experience which is beautiful and haunting alike. The film is a masterpiece both of storytelling and of atmosphere. The cinematography alone is brilliant and incredibly influential, and the film simply fascinates in all aspects. Personally, I've seen it many times by now, and it seems to get better with each viewing. This isn't only a must-see for all my fellow Horror buffs, it must be seen by everybody interested in cinema. A truly essential classic. 10/10!

Sometimes The Less You See, The BetterReviewed byccthemovieman-1Vote: 7/10

This movie provides a good demonstration of how you can still generate good suspense without violence seen on-screen. Director Jacques Tourneur and producer Val Lewton liked these kind of film presentations. This was Lewton's first film, by the way. Viewers either seem to really be for this slower classic style, or totally turned off by these kind of films. It depends, I suppose, on what you are expecting and what kind of movies you like. If you are looking for an action-packed film, with some bloody or horrible scenes, skip this film. It will just bore you to death.

If you prefer the implied violent acts, horror, and even sexual stuff , then this is your cup of tea. It's very "moody."

Simon Simone does well in the key role of "Irena Dubrovna." Animals fear her and she fears getting attached to someone, such as "Oliver Reed" (Kent Smith) who comes along and there is mutual attraction. What happens to those two, and others I won't say. The film is only 72 minutes so why divulge what's in it? Just know what to expect. This is a far cry from today's horror films.
