Crazy Cat Lady’s Christmas Calendar – Day 22
Cat people are not only the coolest and most laid back types of people (compared to dog people), Cat People is also an excellent erotic horror film from 1942, later remade by director Paul Schrader in 1982.
A beautiful young virgin (Nastassja KinskI) travels to New Orleans only to learn that she is the descendant of a race of feline humans. Sex with humans transforms them into panthers who then then have to kill to regain their human form. Ugh. Don’t you hate it when that happens?
Giorgio Moroder composed the film’s score, including the theme song with lyrics and vocals by David Bowie. The song also featured in the amazingly mediocre Tarantino movie Inglourious Basterds.
