Leopard Man, The

Director:  Jacques Tourneur
Year Released:  1943
Rating:  2.0

Completely absurd but suitably atmospheric 'horror film' by Tourneur and producer Val Lewton - the set-up is ridiculous, the ending is ridiculous ... hell, most of the scenes are ridiculous, but the film is murky and foreboding, so that's something in its favor. Aside from the mood and interest in mysticism (one of the characters has her fortune told using tarot cards ... and it's consistently bad news), this is no better or worse than Cat People.
