Rotten: Paul Schrader's hammering, art-porno remake of Jacques Tourneur's deft little thriller.
- Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Fresh: Cat People is a good movie in an old tradition, a fantasy-horror film that takes itself just seriously enough to work, has just enough fun to be entertaining, and] contains elements of intrinsic fascination in its magnificent black leopards.
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Saturday, October 23, 2004
Fresh: Kinski was essential to the film as conceived, and she's endlessly watchable.

The only advantage this remake has over the 1942 original is a naked Nastassja Kinski.

A strange movie. Cat people turn into cats after sex, and will only turn back into humans if they kill someone. Natassija Kinski plays the role with innocence, sexiness, wonder, dread - it is hard to imagine the role with anyone else. I'd love to see the 1942 version.
