PLOT...
The Cat People originated way back in time, when humans sacrificed their women to leopards, who mated with them. Cat People look similar to humans, but must mate with other Cat People before they transform into panthers, Irena Gallier was raised by adoptive parents and meets her older brother Paul for the first time since childhood. We follow brother and sister who seem to be the only ones of their kind left. Irena does not want to be like her brother and falls in love with another man, then the animal starts to show,

This is a fantastic 80's cult classic that's really worth picking up, great story that's well paced out with plenty of really blood violent scenes of attacks and graphic female nudity mainly from the beautiful Nastassja Kinski, the cast is great, Nastassja and Malcolm McDowell are both good leads, there are some great looking practical effects in this movie too with the gore and the make-up, the transformation scenes are very cool what we see of them, this is a bizarre but brilliantly entertaining movie, shocking, brutal, sexy, well worth checking out now it has an awesome Blu-ray treatment.

Blu-ray looks great in HD (certainly better than DVD) (MediumRare Entertainment)
You do get a DVD version included also as a bonus (2-Disc duel format set)
Features include interviews with the stars and makers, commentary, trailer, TV spot, galleries, making of featurettes,
(Some features are on the Blu-ray some are on the DVD)
Blu-ray Region B only, DVD region 2 pal, 118-mins, 1982.

Some fascinating and diverse reviews here, so I'll be brief. An excellent print 1.85:1, lovely colour, especially in the fantasy sequences. Terrific Georgio Moroder music (and a Bowie song that really gets in the mood), a surreal feel to many sections, and whilst it bears little or no similarity to the wonderful original, it stands as a work on it's own. You also get, to be a bit salacious for a moment, nude Nastassia and topless Annette (which surprised me, pleasantly). Annete's scene in the swimming pool is a direct reference to the same scene in the original. I enjoyed it a lot tho I can see some of the less enthusiastic points raised by other reviewers.At this price it is defintely worth getting to decide for your self.Recomended (Oh and load of extras).

There’s a lot to like about this 80’s cult status, atmospheric ‘horror’ film. Firstly, Natassia Kinski is great as the lead role ‘Irena’ who comes from a long line of people who are ‘Were-cats’ (as opposed to Were-wolves) although she doesn’t really know this to start with. You get to see a lot of her at her gorgeous sexy best, all very tastefully done. She’s perfect in the role and becomes more feline as the story progresses.
The supporting actors are good; John Heard as her lover and curator of the zoo where Irena gets a job, and Annette O’Toole another worker at the Zoo. Malcolm McDowell stays just the right side of hammy, as her ‘brother’ and fellow cat person.
The music is just right as well, with a soundtrack by Giorgio Moroder, as it sets the dreamlike feel to the movie with a back drop of sultry New Orleans.
It’s not all that bloody apart from a few scenes, certainly by today’s standards, and I would call it more of a suspense film, than horror. It’s certainly very original, and the film that I thought of as a comparison was ‘The Hunger’ which has a similar feel to it. Forget the comparisons with the 1942 film of the same name as it shares little with it.

I first have to first admit that to me Nastassia Kinski will always be Tess Durbeyfield, in Roman Polanski's adaptation of Thomas Hardy's "Tess of the D'Urbervilles". So it was with some trepidation that I decided to watch "Cat People", in case my image of her was ruined forever. Fortunately it all turned out okay.

The plot follows the discovery by Nastassia Kinski's character, Irena, that she's one of the Cat People and that when she has sex she'll turn into a Black Leopard. This is a little inconvenient when you think about it. Actually most of the film follows her as she finds out about her family's 'unique selling point' rather than the consequences of it, so there aren't a great many scenes that focus on that post love-making bowl of milk, or raiding the nearest bird's nest for some food.

This is a film that brandishes its style over content and isn't ashamed to do so, despite the opportunities the story offers to make a powerful and erotic movie. There are some bits of horror and when they do come the effects are both excellent and convincing, but there aren't a great many and it's only the last quarter of the film when it seems to get going; but by then you've already curled up comfortably by the warm radiator and nothing much is going to get you to change your position, short of someone pushing the vacuum cleaner too close to you. Nastassia Kinski does seem to drift through many of her scenes just looking suitably dreamy, feline and a bit confused about everything. It's not that she did a bad job (in fact I think she plays the character of Irena very well), but the script doesn't seem to give her a great deal of opportunity to act, outside of being a slightly mysterious girl next door sort of character.
