Some solid atmospheric creepiness and a mildly tawdry plot make it a decent watch, even though the first half is pretty ho-hum.
Great noir atmosphere. Not really spooky, but has a few unnerving moments supported by careful lighting design.
Everything was either outdated or surprising modern but regardless it's a great noir film. I fell so hard for the main character too.
Surprisingly solid, charming and umpredictable.
Fascinating example of symbolic shot composition in the black and white era. Haunting and memorable.
A cracking thriller where your sympathies are with the 'monster'.
A bizarre plot (Irena’s afraid she’ll turn into a big cat and harm her husband) still manages to cast a truly spooky spell.
Not my favorite horror movie from this time. But still an OK watch.
It knows how to create amazing suspense, but it still feels like it's missing something.
Builds great atmosphere and teases intriguing lore in favor of focusing on “human” melodrama that scratches the surface of a feminist story.
Serbian fashion designer Irena Dubrovna and American marine engineer Oliver Reed meet in Central Park, fall in love, and marry after a brief courtship; but Irena won't consummate the union for fear that she will turn into a panther compelled to kill her lover, pursuant to a belief harbored by her home village.
Amy, the young, friendless daughter of Oliver and Alice Reed, befriends her father's late first wife and an aging, reclusive actress.
