Val Lewton: Cat People / The Curse of the Cat People

1942 NR

Famed RKO Radio Pictures producer Val Lewton managed to single-handedly redefine the horror genre in the 1940s, cranking out low-budget, high-volume box office hits that rarely disappointed audiences -- or studio execs. This double feature of Cat People (1942) and The Curse of the Cat People (1944) -- Lewton's first film and its subsequent sequel starring Simone Simon -- is the first installment of a five-DVD collection of Lewton's work.
