THE CURSE OF THE CAT PEOPLE Makes Its Blu-ray Debut In June – Extras Revealed Inside

Scream Factory has officially announced the release for the 1944 horror classic THE CURSE OF THE CAT PEOPLE, making its Blu-ray debut on June 26th. Head inside for the details!

From Scream Factory:

Scream Factory has announced the June 26 release of The Curse of the Cat People, which will bow on Blu-ray for the very first time.

Filled with “wonderful atmosphere [and] fine, moody fantasy” (Leonard Maltin), this continuation of 1942’s Cat People follows Oliver Reed (Kent Smith), now remarried, living in idyllic Tarrytown, New York, and the father of six-year-old Amy. When Amy becomes withdrawn and speaks of consorting with a new “friend,” Oliver worries that she may be under the influence of the spirit of first wife. Is it just Amy’s imagination that has manifested the enigmatic Irena (Simone Simon), who long believed herself to be descended from a race of Cat People?

Directors Gunther V. Fritsch and Robert Wise (making his directorial debut), co-helmed a gothic-laced mix of fantasy and fright so astute it was used in college psychology classes. And producer Val Lewton, given small budgets and lurid, pre-tested film titles by RKO, worked with rising filmmakers to emphasize the fear of the unseen, and turn meager resources into momentous works of psychological terror.

Special Features:

  • NEW Audio Commentary with author/historian Steve Haberman
  • Audio Commentary with historian Greg Mank, with audio interview excepts with actress Simone Simon
  • NEW Lewton’s Muse: The Dark Eyes of Simone Simon – a video essay by filmmaker Constantine Nasr (Shadows in the Dark: The Val Lewton Legacy)
  • NEW Audio Interview with Ann Carter, moderated by Tom Weaver
  • Theatrical Trailers
  • Still Gallery
