In September DVD’s premiere label The Criterion Collection will be releasing a new edition of Cat People with a cover by Bill Sienkiewicz (Daredevil, Elektra, Stray Toasters).
Released in 1942, Cat People starred Simone Simon and was directed by Jacques Tourneur. Dripping with atmosphere, it is regarded by many as one of the greatest horror films of the period. Comic creators have implied from time to time that Selina Kyle is a fan as well. In fact, when she tried creating a new life for herself One Year Later, she adopted the alias Irene Dubrovna, which also happens to be the name of Simon’s character in the film.
