The Cat Creature DVD 1973 For Sale Meredith Baxter David Hedison TV Movie
DVD Synopsis and information:
When a rich man dies, some items from a collection of his are stolen- an ancient Egyptian gold amulet and the mummy that was wearing it. The police consult scholars from the local University to help with the investigation, which is taking a more serious turn as people connected with the case are killed by wounds that seem to be from a house cat.
Originally aired on December 11, 1973, The Cat Creature is a purring color tribute to the moody Val Lewton films of the 1940s, and an extremely entertaining Made-for-Television movie directed by genre regular Curtis Harrington.
Russian born producer Lewton had been responsible for a number of effective low-budget thrillers for the RKO studio. The Cat Creature was an effective homage to his best-known work, 1942's Cat People, and concerned a reincarnated Egyptian priestess who kills in order to stay alive in modern day Los Angeles.
Along with newcomer Meredith Baxter, the ABC-TV film featured a few faces familiar to genre and 'B' picture fans, including John Carradine and Gale Sondergaard (in her first film since being blacklisted two decades earlier), as well as Kent Smith - one of the leads in the original Cat People.
