CAT PEOPLE (1982) THREE TOP HATS

CAT PEOPLE 1

I remember back in 1982 or 1983 I used to walk blocks down to the local video store and pick up horror movies of all types. Life was safe then. I also remember renting this and putting it in at my aunt and uncle’s house and nearly shitting myself in fear when everyone started getting naked. Not that I cared, you know, but my aunt was a bit – um – more stern than she is now and and I likely would have got a decent beating if she had witnessed Kinski slinking around all naked and what not. Luckily I turned it off in time and saved myself a good belt whipping and now look, it’s 30 years later and my past and I have converged to finish this off.

Despite how attractive Kinski used to be and despite seeing all of her a lot, I thought this was pretty boring and very 80s-ish. The music irritated me, I had to see Malcolm McDowell’s schlong (AGAIN!!), John Heard bothered me and, honestly, the only thing I REALLY liked about this was the long tracking shot of Annette O’Toole jogging through the park on her way to the gym. Something about that was really fun and cool and the synth worked but otherwise, this was a yawner and took a couple of sittings to get through. O’Toole:

I was kind of surprised to see Ed Begley (Jr.) and John Larroquette in a sex drama since they were mostly doing comedy back then (or would be). Begley gets his arm ripped off by a panther or leopard and dies a grisly death. I was also surprised at how strongly Malcolm McDowell wanted to screw Kinski – SHE’S YOUR FUCKING SISTER FOR CHIRSSAKES!!! Nice plot. Gross. All in all I would say this one is one to skip unless you just want to see a couple of pair of boobs. O’Toole’s got some nice ones… Oh – the plot if you’re not familiar: McDowell and Kinski are brother and sister who need to do The Sex with each other. If they do The Sex with other people they turn into giant cats and kill their partner. Nice.

    Kinski hasn’t aged well has she…she’s looking kinda ragged these days. I don’t remember this movie so if I did see it it must have sucked pretty bad.

      LOL Misty – I’m not sure if “fun” is the right word for this one. You should give it a shot sometime though, just to say you have… : )

      Your life will probably not be enriched by giving it another shot unless you just miss the glitz of the 80s. But then you can always go look at those Patrick Nagel prints you have in your attic, instead of spending a couple of hours with this.

      : )

  2. I happened to come across your blog. Looks very cool and engaging with a wide audience.

    Please let me intro. myself. We are very fortunate that Malcolm has attached himself to our upcoming film BEREAVE and he loves it so much that we are doing a #Kickstarter campaign where he is personally involved in awesome perk fulfillment. So far we have sold some great perks like dinner w/ Malcolm, premiere & party, download of completed film, roles in the film, days on set and more! We are at $38,000 with 16 days to go, but need to reach $100,000. It’s doable! But we need to get the word out, let the world know it is happening; reach his fans. Press is brutal and very stingy. So we’re going grass roots with it. Do you think you could post a little something on your blog if you like what you see? Please let us know. We would be extremely grateful to you! Here is a link to our campaign: http://kck.st/15oAyoa

    As you may or may not know, Kickstarter is an all or nothing platform for crowd funding. If the campaign does not hit its goal, the backer is not charged anything. If we do hit our goal, the backers make history and produce our wonderful drama/romance starring Malcolm McDowell, Neve Campbell & JJ Feild.

    Thanks!
