Cat People

Director: Jacques Tourneur
Year Released: 1942
Rating: 2.5

Val Lewton-produced 'horror' picture about a woman who turns into a cat is - to my mind - probably the best thing he (and director Jacques Tourneur) ever made together. Sometimes the mysticism gets a little hokey - and I don't think Simone Simon is an adequate lead - but it has fantastic ambience and is paced well.
