    Curse of the Cat People is a strange, strange movie and not at all like the original Cat People; but it's worth seeing - it's kind of magical and warm in a surprising way.

    The best of this bunch is the last, which is based on Twain's early writings, and is quite a bit of fun.

    I've seen it and it's really awful. Jodie Foster is great as Becky Thatcher; already a pro at that young age, but the rest of the movie is dreadful.

    My brother owns the Kino Video DVD version of it, with the correct soundtrack. Good film, interesting cinematography. Though, I had to laugh when the one assistant volunteered to test out the thumbscrews.
