BNoirDetour will truly earn its name with tonight’s film, 1943’s The Leopard Man. Produced by B horror king Val Lewton and directed by Jacques Tournier, with a budget of only $150,000, the film makes the perfect entry for the week of Halloween.

With the aid of the talented RKO crew and skilled cinematographer Robert de Grasse, a tale of a nightclub publicity stunt gone wrong becomes one of Hollywood’s first attempts at a serial killer film.

From the castanets of Clo-clo (Margo) to a leopard on the loose (Dynamite, the same black cat featured in Lewton and Tournier’s Cat People), you’ll be riveted to your seat by the dark terror of The Leopard Man!

Please join us at 9pm ET tonight!
