Halloween Screening of this cult classic.

This screening is a fundraiser for local filmmakers Au Revoir, Shosanna Productions and goes towards the production of their new film.

"The first of the horror films producer Val Lewton (The Body Snatcher, I Walked with a Zombie) made for RKO Pictures redefined the genre by leaving its most frightening terrors to its audience's imagination. Simone Simon (La bête humaine) stars as a Serbian émigré in Manhattan who believes that, because of an ancient curse, any physical intimacy with the man she loves (Kent Smith) will turn her into a feline predator. Lewton, a consummate producer-auteur who oversaw every aspect of his projects, found an ideal director in Jacques Tourneur (Out of the Past), a chiaroscuro adept at keeping viewers off-kilter with startling compositions and psychological innuendo.

Together, they eschewed the canned effects of earlier monster movies in favour of shocking with subtle shadows and creative audio cues as one of the studio's most successful movies of the 1940s, Cat People raised the creature feature to new heights of sophistication and mystery."
