2012 Halloween Horror Screenings: Cat People (1942) and I Walked With A Zombie (1943)

Location: The Aero Theatre, 1328 Montana Avenue, Santa Monica, CA 90403

Description: As part of their 2012 Halloween Horror Events, the American Cinematheque presents this double bill of suggestive shudders from producer Val Lewton, who for a brief time in the 1940s excelled at making high-quality horror, with thoughtful scripts and solid production values, all on a B-movie budget. Cat People deals with an unfortunate woman (Simone Simone), who fears that if she becomes passionately (i.e., sexually) aroused, she will turn into a lethal wildcat. I Walked with a Zombie is essentially the story of Jane Eyre transposed to the West Indies; this time, the first wife hidden away in the attic is not merely mad but possibly undead.
