Shadows, the fear hiding behind the corner on the streets, ambiguous monsters which come from within: in the first horror movie produced by Val Lewton for RKO and directed by Tourneur, a Serbian fashion designer is in love with the architect Oliver but she is locked in the grips of the “feline” curse which weighs on her origins. Until it is unleashed by her jealousy. Starring Simone Simon, shot by Nicholas Musuraca, and edited by Mark Robson, a classic of the “unseen” which terrorizes.
