CAT PEOPLE / RKO Radio Pictures - 1942

It's Friday Fright with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. We gots a very stylish noir mystery directed by Jacques (I WALKED WITH A ZOMBIE and CURSE OF THE DEMON) Tourneur, starring French born Simone (THE CURSE OF THE CAT PEOPLE) Simon, Kent (THE INVADERS) Smith, Tom (VOODOO WOMAN and THE SHE-CREATURE) Conway and Jane (ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN) Randolph and had a very decent budget of $134,000, bringing in $4,000,000.

Eegah!! sent over a lil' soundclip from the movie for us to enjoy, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button there next to the big black cat, NOW, Rufus The Gnat! Here's our audio offering for... CAT PEOPLE!

It's always interesting to start a horror flick with a little warning about something!..

It's love at first sight for Oliver after eyeballing pretty Irena at the zoo, she's a mysterious Serbian-born fashion artist living in New York. Oliver and Irena get married...

But, there's problems, Irena believes she has a family curse on her, that, whenever she get extremely agitated, she turns into a black panther and kills for revenge!

Oliver sends Irena to debonaire shrink, Dr. Louis Judd, he probes her mind for answers to her mysterious past.

I like this shot!..

After her sessions with Dr. Judd, though, she begins having vivid dreams and nightmares.

In a fit of jealously, Irena stalks Oliver's co-worker and good friend, Alice, and gives her quite a thrill at the indoor pool!

Oliver has to fend off a freakin' black panther in his office building!!

Dr. Judd has fallen in love with Irena, but, she doesn't love him, and, he'll get his just desserts in just a few moments!
