Cat People ★★★★

This really reminded me of Kurt Neumann’s The Fly, with its great sense of atmosphere and build up, saving the cat reveal until the very last act. Simone Simon’s performance here is just the right blend of melodramatic and unsettling. Perhaps what won me over though was how great the sound mixing was for this film—a key element for any movie that wants to be viewed as horror. Really impressed with how well Cat People was made overall, a great release from 1942.
