Cat People was the original film that was made forty years later into a sleazy remake filled with more issues than Time magazine.

A young woman from Serbia named Irena a fashion designer who comes to America to fulfill her career. She meets a nice man named Oliver who falls for her hard and marries her. But the young lady has so many strange quirks that they drive Oliver up the wall. She doesn't want to consummate the marriage and she has a very catty jealous streak. Oliver seeks help from a shrink and his hot co-worker Alice but that seems to make matters only worse. What kind of secret does Irena hide from Oliver?
