Publisher Comments:

Released in 1943, Cat People was the first production from the unit set up by RKO to make low-cost, high-return horror movies. Producer Val Lewton was handed the title and ordered to come up with a film to fit. He and director Jacques Tourneur created an innovative picture about a Serbian emigree in New York (Simone Simon) who's convinced she's suffering from a hereditary curse that will transform her into a panther if her passions are aroused.

Kim Newman positions this 74-minute classic in terms of the horror film genre from which it emerges and against which it rebels. Through close analysis, he teases out the layers of meaning and intent that make this at once a supernatural drama and an unusual psychological study.

Synopsis:

Made by the brilliant producer-director team of Val Lewton and Jacques Tourneur. Cat People (1943) is legendary for its elliptical style. Part gothic fantasy, part psychosexual drama, Cat People is one of the greatest horror films ever made.

Synopsis:

This work is the author's insight into the 1943 film Cat People. Made by the team Val Lewton and Jaques Tourner, the film is legendary for its eliptical style--its emphasis on the terrors of what's not seen. Part gothic fantasy, part psychosexual drama, it's the dream of metamorphosis.
