Shout Factory continues to churn out the horror classics under their Scream Factory brand with fresh new cover artwork and all new special features. Their latest film to get this treatment is Paul Schrader’s 1982 classic Cat People that starred Nastassja Kinski, Malcolm McDowell, John Heard, and Annette O’Toole.

Cat People follows a young woman on the bridge of sexuality; she discovers love for the first time only to find that the explosive experience brings with it tragic consequences. However, the tremendous passion of this girl's first romantic love is so strong; it bypasses the terror around her including her brother's extraordinary demands as it pushes her on to her own bizarre destiny. This film is a loose remake of the 1942 noir classic of the same name, but brings its own erotic flare to the table. This is one of those films that you either enjoy or you don’t. This film doesn’t play so much as a horror film as opposed to a slow build thriller with a monster-esque twist. The performances are all good with a few moments that come off a bit cheesy, but still work for the bigger picture. The transformation moments are classic 80s using some clever camera work and practical effects to bring them to life. There are aspects of the story that gets lost on itself at times, but thanks to the intriguing and erotic nature delivers a classic that holds up well and will no doubt continue to please fans both new and old.

This is one of those films that sport a great cast and a twist of classic monster storytelling while throwing in a modern take that sets itself apart from others like it. Sure nowadays there have been numerous attempts at this sort of thing, but few have managed to capture what this film was able to do. In addition to the film this release also features interviews, still gallery, and a theatrical trailer.
