Critic Reviews of "Cat People"VarietyMarch 26, 2009
This is a weird drama of thrill-chill caliber.Chicago Sun-TimesSeptember 26, 2007
Cat People wasn't frightening like a slasher movie, using shocks and gore, but frightening in an eerie, mysterious way that was hard to define; the screen harbored unseen threats.Chicago ReaderSeptember 26, 2007
More a film about unreasoning fear than the supernatural, this work demonstrates what a filmmaker can accomplish when he substitutes taste and intelligence for special effects.Time OutJune 24, 2006
First in the wondrous series of B movies in which Val Lewton elaborated his principle of horrors imagined rather than seen, with a superbly judged performance from Simon.New York TimesMarch 25, 2006
Ladies who have such temptations -- in straight horror pictures, at least -- should exercise their digits a bit more freely than does Simone Simon in this film.Under the RadarFebruary 28, 2017
While Cat People isn't among the scariest films ever made, there are a trio of truly suspenseful scenes which, quite ingeniously, leave just enough up to the audience's imagination to dial up the tension.CineVueJanuary 16, 2017
[Cat People's] masterstroke lies in a constant awareness of its audience, using their expectations of its B-movie horror title to draw out the film's tension.Times (UK)October 03, 2016
I do like a film that opens with a mission statement, and... Cat People starts thus: "Even as fog continues to lie in the valleys, so does ancient sin cling to the low places, the depressions in the world consciousness."ReelTalk Movie ReviewsAugust 29, 2015
Scenes where Irena shadows her rival are burned into cinema memory.Total FilmOctober 14, 2014
It's psychological horror at its finest: timelessly terrifying and absolutely purr-fect.LarsenOnFilmSeptember 22, 2014
...a startling, psychosexual horror picture - especially for its time.
