Classic Val Lewton production about an ancient curse that transforms a Serbian beauty into a deadly panther when sexually aroused (bummer) remains one of the most important films in horror history. Lewton’s style of leaving the implied horrors occurring in the story to the viewer’s imagination is still one of the most effective techniques a filmmaker can apply when trying to scare an audience. The film’s classic bus and swimming pool scenes are strong proof of this. The bus scene is also famous for being film’s first “jump scare”. Legendary stuff.
