I do like a film that opens with a mission statement, and... Cat People starts thus: "Even as fog continues to lie in the valleys, so does ancient sin cling to the low places, the depressions in the world consciousness."

While Cat People isn't among the scariest films ever made, there are a trio of truly suspenseful scenes which, quite ingeniously, leave just enough up to the audience's imagination to dial up the tension.
