Irena Dubrovna (Simone Simon), a beautiful and mysterious Serbian-born fashion artist living in New York City, falls in love with and marries average-Joe American Oliver Reed (Kent Smith).

Original and best. - Cat People review by Steve Mason

Spoiler Alert
20/10/2014

This fantasy-noir is a Freudian story about a New York immigrant's strange sexual curse. The first of producer Val Lewton's moody, pessimistic and literary 1940s horror films, which were never better than when working with Jacques Tourneur who delivers many brilliant suspenseful set pieces.
