I don't know why the previous reviewer was so hard on a film he's never seen! THE CAT CREEPS is a "lost" film. To the best of my knowledge, it has never been seen since it's original release in late 1930. The film is worthy of rediscovery for several reasons, including:

A) It has a great of the best of any film released in 1930;

B) The film was directed by Rupert (THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA) Julian;

C) It could be considered the first Universal sound horror film, predating DRACULA by 3 months;

D) Cast members Lilyan Tashman and Blanche Friderici co-starred the following year in a wonderful mystery-horror film, MURDER BY THE CLOCK;

E) Star Helen Twelvetrees was a popular early talkie actress...she, along with Constance Bennett, Nancy Carroll, Mae Clarke, Ann Harding, Billie Dove, et al, typified the early sound era;

I hope this title is rediscovered. Paging Kino Video......
