Attack of the Cat People ; By Gene Stevens

It’s great to be a monster movie writer. I get to meet the most interesting people online and in person.  So once again, there I was minding my own business on a dark street corner….  Just kidding I was online. When I got a message from a writer and producer with Black Cat Film Productions, Sarah Stephenson. She is from the land down under in Queensland Australia where Black Cat Film Productiond is located.  Sarah sent me a link to the trailer for Black Cat’s new indie film “Attack of The Cat People”.

At first I thought Attack of the Cat People was based upon RKOs noir movie “The Cat People”. But Sarah explained that it was actually an original film inspired by the Universal Studios early horror movies. Sarah told me that Attack of the Cat People was written and filmed to reflect the style of the old universal films. I immediately asked her if I could share Black Cat’s new project here. Check out the trailer posted here. It’s filmed in noir style and costuming appears to be well researched for the 1940’s.
