Cat People -The Woman as Aloof Beast

I love my horror radio plays. They go from exquisite to terrible, but the medium is amazing and tends to force writers into efficiency.

But some are bad, and some return to the same tired themes. Below are some of my favorite terrible ones. In all of them the story is based weakly on the idea that women are naturally associated with our favorite selfish house pet, the cat.

I’m sure someone with more writing talent than I could write an entire paper on the topic. I’m content to roll my eyes and laugh.

Cat Woman – The Creaking Door

Queen of the Cats – The Mysterious Traveler

The Weekend – Macabre

Alley Cat – Lights Out
