Cat People / The Curse Of The Cat People

'Cat People' (1942) is producer Val Lewton's horror classic about a young bride convinced an ancient curse will turn her into a killer panther if she dares show love. Stark lighting and the '40s need to play down the plot's sexual overtones combine to make a subtly terrifying gem. Then, in the haunting sequel, 'The Curse of the Cat People' (1944) a lonely young girl is befriended by the spirit of her father's first wife, who died believing she was descended from a race of 'cat people'.
