Cat People

Cat People – Jacques Tourneur (produced by Val Lewton) – A woman fears she is innately possessed by a primordial spirit that, if sexually aroused will transform her into a panther. Through a masterful use of shadows, an artistic use of composition (often placing feline objects or suggestive ornaments in the background) and reliance upon the psychologically chilling over the visually shocking, it creates a surprisingly powerful and mystifying atmosphere. 7.5/10
