This is a movie that doesn't get talked about alot. I think me and Muffy watched it when she was here visiting me, and that was the last time I saw it. It is really weird. It has some crazy special effects in it, and it is pretty bloody.

Has anyone seen it...and what did you think of it?

Never saw Cat People, but seeing this thread just reminded me of Sleepwalkers. I do like that one.

I have seen it many years ago. But as with most movies I don’t remember too much of it, other than the David Bowie song: Putting Out the Fire, some nudity and vaguely something about a woman waking up in a zoo cage? Is that possible?
I was too young when I watched it and didn’t understand much of it. I feel I would appreciate it more now.

I'm the same as TKO....seen it, but don't remember much...I'll take another peek....I have a copy on VHS. And Muffy...I'm pretty sure it's not Stephen King.

This movie was creepy.....I was never a fan of it, but Nastassja Kinski is quite memeorable for some reason.

Muffy...I thought for sure we watched it....it had Ed Begley in it too-he gets his arm ripped off...they were at the Zoo. It has Rodney McDowell in it...he has some kind of weird incestous relationship going with Natassja Kinski....I remember there was a scene in "Terror in the Aisles"...where there's a postitute in a room and a panter's paw comes out from under the bed and grabs her foot. Rodney McDowell and Natassja can turn in to panthers....and the effects are kind of like Michael Jackson turning in to the werewolf in thriller.

I saw this movie once back in the day (you know, when MTV had no commercials and HBO *really* meant Home Box Office) and I thought it was gross.

I do recall a scene where Kinksi is looking at herself in the mirror and eating some....one....and it looks like she's got bloody balogna skin hanging from her mouth.

::shudders::

I don't like gore for the sake of it and I *really* don't like balogna!

Yep...that's the one aTomik. Pages are also more like a newspaper, versus, the newer shiny magazine paper. For a short time, I was collecting some of the earlier 80's editions....but gave it up...at the time...collecting way too many things. As jdoc said...easily found on ebay. I still have this one and a few others with Prince, Cyndi Lauper, etc, on the covers. Great memories....

Fascinating, sexy thriller, about the wild animal inside people.
The film is beautifully photographed with lots of warm colors, and the tension is built up very well, in a slow tempo with some sudden outbursts of violence.
Also, the mysterious music by Moroder and Bowie is fits perfectly. I love the theme song.
McDowell is a great actor, he's very creepy, and Kinski is a excellent cast, she's mysterious and very sexy.
I also liked the fact that they used real leopards. What beautiful animals!
Schrader has directed some fine films... I also liked American Gigolo, and I'm going to watch Mishima soon, since I own it on dvd.

Beautiful still from the opening scene:

If you like Schrader, check out "Auto Focus." Greg Kinnear is excellent, as is a creepy Willem Dafoe.
