The Curse of the Cat People

The Curse of the Cat People

Directed by Gunther von Fritsch and Robert Wise • 1944 • United States
Starring Simone Simon, Kent Smith, Jane Randolph

Val Lewton’s often overlooked quasi-sequel to CAT PEOPLE is, fascinatingly, less a straightforward horror film than a darkly poetic fairy tale. As a lonely little girl (Ann Carter) increasingly isolates herself from children her own age in favor of spending time with an eccentric old woman, her father (Kent Smith) fears that she may have inherited the same psychosis that plagued her late mother (Simone Simon)—the curse of the Cat People.
