I know the other commenters did not enjoy this but I thought it was decent. For the 40's it took place in an interesting setting. It also was a bit frightening for its time. It was a little too mystery by the numbers but still pretty entertaining. I haven't seen anything else produced by Lewton but this film probably pales in comparison to some of his more famous films which I will try to check out soon.

Oh, those castanets! They were really annoying. No one can possibly click them that fast, can they?

St. Gloede

Starts off well but turns into a ridiculously dumb, horribly written, half arsed piece of shit. It was well made though. It's tragic that a great director like Tourneur had to be involved in this : (

A competent but unremarkable, and ultimately disappointing, Lewton/Tourneur thriller. No real plot or suspense... 4/10.

The Leopard Man starts with an escaped black leopard that may be responsible for killing a young woman in a New Mexico town, but as the killings continue, the film's leads start thinking something else might be responsible. As with Lewton's other productions, the moments of terror feel like they could be right out of Hitchcock's filmography, showing just enough and never too much, and using cinematography to spark the imagination. The location is unusual, as are the characters, with what may be a conscious thread of the privileged denying responsibility for the deaths. Ultimately, this has to be ranked among Lewton's lesser RKO horror films even if the set pieces are among the strongest. Dennis O'Keefe in the lead is wooden and boring compared to all the female characters that are put in danger, and the resolution just isn't satisfying, I'm afraid, only teasing a better ending than what we actually get.
