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.
Plot: After years of separation, Irina and her minister brother, Paul, reunite in New Orleans in this erotic tale of the supernatural. When zoologists capture a wild panther, Irina is drawn to the cat — and the zoo curator is drawn to her. Soon, Irina’s brother will have to reveal the family secret: that when sexually aroused, they turn into predatory jungle cats.

Beautifully Shot, but Narratively Unengaging
Cat People is smart. Like most remakes that stand a chance, it keeps what worked in the original and reinvents it, twisting the narrative into something else. It’s just a shame that this new narrative, for all its sexual implications, isn’t terribly interesting.
The beautiful Kinski stars as a young woman who reunites with her religious fanatic brother in New Orleans and begins to realize that he’s involved in a series of murders. Is he just a run of the mill serial killer or is he a “cat person” devouring hookers and tourists all around the French Quarter? Also, could she have this trait within her as well?
I’m not sure if it was the Blu-Ray I watched this on or if it was poor sound mixing in general, but the dialogue is so quiet and muffled that I had to turn the volume all the way up just to hear what everyone was saying before having to crank it down every time there was an attack scene. Eventually, I just turned on the subtitles and treated it like a foreign film.
There’s a lot to like about Cat People. It has moments of the style, the acting is pretty good, and there’s a twisted sexual perversity running throughout the story., but it’s a bit overlong at nearly 2 hours and there’s not enough to justify this runtime. We still don’t really get a feel for most of the characters and Kinski’s mid-film switch from sheltered, repressed virgin into femme fatale fails to convince.
explicit sex and the gory violence
I have always liked this film but have always been aware that I am in a minority and therefore have considered this an ‘Unsung Horror’, well worthy of inclusion in the WBD publication, if it were not for the 70s cut off. Its present status seems a little improved and maybe this is as we move further and further away from the 1942 black and white classic original. Schrader has said it was a mistake to give his film the same name and this has to be right for immediate comparisons were inevitable. But even putting this difficulty aside we are still left with the explicit sex and the gory violence in a mainstream film. Nastassja Kinski is lovely in this and carries through with some difficult scenes very bravely. Schrader does well to ensure that that potent mix of young and innocent and ruthless and deadly is maintained throughout, always making sure that we see the cat within the girl. There is some wonderful photography here, from the beautifully constructed zoo to the buildings of New Orleans and even though this is a very colourful film the director remains aware of the power of shadows. People burst from the blackness of rooms, the eeriness of the night scenes enhanced by long and dramatic shadowing, not to mention the recreation of the stunning swimming pool scene.
