Tag: Cat People

1982 gave us a wealth of iconic, influential genre cinema: TRON, BLADE RUNNER, POLTERGEIST, FIRST BLOOD, CONAN THE BARBARIAN, CREEPSHOW and CAT PEOPLE. So, maybe that last one isn’t typically mentioned in the same breath as the others, but it should be. After all, what other film mentioned above involved the work of Paul Schrader, Alan Ormsby, Jerry Bruckheimer, Malcom McDowell, Natassja Kinksi, Giorgio Moroder and David Bowie? On paper, it reads like a film that shouldn’t be and on screen it looks and sounds like something that absolutely is, and is as deserving of a mention in the 1982 cannon as it seems defiantly opposed to such a notion.
