I think so. The 1942 original of Cat People does anyway. Curse of the Cat People in fact is probably even more of a cult movie, since it doesn't really fit neatly into a particular genre - it's odd and quirky and rather strange, and it's a remarkably good movie.

 

The 1982 remake of Cat People is simply a terrible movie, with no redeeming features whatever. Not even entertaining in a "so bad it's good" way.

I agree. "Cat People," the Lewton original, is terrific because while the film reads like a normal horror movie, with normal people (the American husband and the American woman who loves him) threatened by weird people (the Serbian wife and the evil psychiatrist), when you watch the movie, you end up sympathizing with the weird people.

 

"Curse of the Cat People" isn't exactly a horror movie, but it has terrifying moments and is very well done.

 

The 1982 "Cat People" is just bad. I read in Premier magazine years later that the director admitted he was abusing cocaine while he filmed the movie, and he had nothing good to say about it.
