The Curse of the Cat People (1944)

Gunther von Fritsch and Robert Wise direct Ann Carter, Kent Smith and Simone Simon in this sequel to the original terror classic which explores the family of survivors in the aftermath of Dad’s first marriage to a sexy alluring cat person.

A sequel in name and cast only… if you’ve come for Cat People you’ll walk away very disappointed. More about a troubled young tot’s slightly scary fantasy world, one where she imagines Simone Simon as spectral angel in the garden. Not particularly effective as a horror and a complete gyp as a sequel but quite sweet and watchable as a curious drama about a sensitive child. Atmosphere and anti-conformity are the cash money words of the day.
