The Cat People originated way back in time, when humans sacrificed their women to leopards, who mated with them. Cat People look similar to humans, but must mate with other Cat People before they transform into panthers. Irene Gallier was raised by adoptive parents and meets her older brother Paul for the first time since childhood. We follow brother and sister – who seem to be the only ones of their kind left.
Erotic thriller with Nastassja Kinski starring as a young female who’s gone searching for her own, inner self. In many ways a remake of the 1942 original, but also in many ways not a remake – a film that stands its own ground, this has a quality of sexual awakening and excitement that the original didn’t have. Fabulous music by Giorgio Moroder (also featured is David Bowie’s hit-single “Putting Out the Fire”) accompanies many of the bloody and sexually occupied scenes that hammers on like they belonged in a artsy-fartsy porn flick.
Kinski’s performance at the center is typically her: odd, tactless, awkward, outlandish and sensual – in other words, highly enjoyable. She’s fantastically beautiful, and she moves through a New Orleans during the fall, shot by John Bailey. And even though the level of thrills ain’t always sky-high, the film has a charm and atmosphere that makes it a interesting, stylish and sexy cult picture.
