Review – Cat People

Even all these years later it’s downright impressive what can be done with a decent script and a little careful attention to lighting and editing. Even the casting is good, using actors who fit their parts rather than big name stars. This particularly applies to Simone Simon, who really looks like a cat. In fact, she looks like a cute little kitten, which makes it all the more intriguing when it turns out that she’s got a dark, shape-shifting secret tied to her sexuality. Though I guess it was only natural that this movie got lost in overall events in 1942, it now deserves a place in horror movie history. A must-see for any fan of the genre. Worth seeing
