Island of Lost Souls (1932) + Cat People (1942)

We're back! In this first episode of our new season, we’ll be talking about a double-bill of Panther Women.

In the first episode of our new season all about monsters, we talk about The Island of lost Souls (1932) and Cat People (1942). These two films make for a wicked double bill of cat-themed horror. 

I’m joined in this episode by Dr. Alison Peirse, author and professor specialised in horror cinema, to discuss Panther Women, cat-themed horror and how these films tackle female sexuality.
