Double Feature with ISLAND OF LOST SOULS

1942 • dir Jacques Tourneur w/Simone Simon, Tom Conway, Kent Smith, Jane Randolph • 73 min • 35mm

Director Jacques Tourneur and producer Val Lewton were masters of gothic horror and CAT PEOPLE is among their best films. The alluring Simone Simon plays a woman who might be turning into a panther when she allows her emotions to run away with her – or maybe it’s just that escaped big cat from the zoo. If you’ve ever jumped at that moment in a horror film or thriller when a surprising but non-threatening thing breaks a moment of deliberately built tension, you’ve experienced the “Lewton Bus” – a technique introduced in this picture.

Staff Pick: Jessie, Kim, Erica, Alissa
