Cat People


Dir. Jacques Tourneur (1942).
Possibly the only American movie thus far to feature a Serbian “monster,” this Freudian chiller was the first movie Jacques Tourneur made for Val Lewton’s “B” unit at RKO; championed by savvy critics like Manny Farber and James Agee, it helped save the studio and jump-started Lewton’s career as the most literate horror maven in Hollywood.
