Less a sequel to Cat People, and more a paranormal children's noir that is unlike virtually anything Hollywood has ever made, Curse of the Cat People is at once thrilling, chilling and heartbreaking. Amy is a troubled child, prone to daydreaming, who begins a friendship with her father's deceased former wife, appearing in their snow-covered backyard. Psychologically complex, at times painful, gorgeous to behold, this underrated noir deserves to be appreciated on the Heights' silver screen.
