Cat Girl (1957)
A young woman inherits a family curse that turns her into a murderous feline when she is angered.

Plot This movie was a less subtle copy of the 1942 Val Lewton masterpiece, Cat People. In this version Leonora Johnson played by Barbara Shelley inherits the family curse from her uncle. Leonora has a Leopard which she fells it thoughts and controls the beast. Of course the leopard also corrupts her thoughts too and makes her more savage. Leonora returns to her homeland with her gold digger new husband. Leonora’s feelings for her old boyfriend, Dr. Brian Marlowe, are rekindled. Of course he married after she left. Well, I don’t want to spoil anything but I think you get the gist of this.

My Review This movie was filled with atmosphere with thunderstorms and the old mansion. It also had a little The Wolf Man feel with the housekeeper, Anna (Lily Kann), reminding me a lot of Maleva from The Wolf Man. Barbara Shelley did a wonderful job in the role of Leonora. She was no Simon Simone, but she still captured the bestiality of the character. The rest of the cast was adequate. The movie was paced more like a movie from either the late 1930s or early 1940s. I felt like I was watching a Poverty Row horror film.

The ending was very predictable. I have taken off a little for the lame ending, but I loved this film. It is my second favorite horror movie from the 1950s behind Invasion of the Body Snatchers. I give it a strong 8/10.
