The story of a haunting woman. The story of a woman haunted. Michael Ninn shatters time and space, assaulting the senses with sound and imagery whose sole purpose is to Turn you On... Catherine will be long remembered as an example of the heights that can be reached with a real director at the helm.
This is probably the best porn I have seen since Andrew Blake's Paris Chic. Stylishly done, this film leaves no desire unfulfilled. My girlfriend loved this one and asked me to get more like it. I guess that speaks highly of the sensual, dark, and erotic nature of the film without it being hardcore in your face sex (something she is no fan of). The locales and sets are amazing, not to mention the stars (in and out of their clothes), and the atmosphere and mood are sensually dark. We liked this one so much we'll probably end up buying it.
story line is pretty good, but what makes this movie awesome is the way it's filmed. granted porn movies are made for one reason, but this movie is much more than that. if you take away the sex (why would you anyway) you actually have a movie well worth the theater. i'm into the 70's cinematic storytelling porn and after years of amateur/gonzo films it's cool to know that ninn is creating porn gems like this.
I didnt really get what the story of this movie was about, but for the most part it fit my personal taste in a sence that it was strange and edgy. Some of the scenes would have actually been better if the dialog was left out! I enjoyed this film most of the way through, but in between scenes I fast forwarded it bit because the jumpy backflashes got to be a bit repetative and didnt do much for me.
Over all this one made me pretty happy and hopefull that there are films done in a way that appealed to my perticular taste. For porn it wasn't too cheesy, because I hate too much cheesy!

This movie was a lot of fun. The first time we tried to watch this movie, we didn't make it past the first scene. The second time we tried, we forced ourselves to keep watching. Afterwards, the sex was worth the wait. The sex scenes are hot, a little dirty and intense. Well, all except for the one without the redheaded lead actress in it, which was a little tame. We didn't quite understand the plot, but realized that that's the point of the movie. I guess it's all about each viewer's interpretation. Overall though, this movie provided for good times.
we enjoyed this one. the anticipation was mostly what made this one work: waiting for something to happen while she crawls naked on the steps in the beginning. to be honest, we can't rate the story, since we became "distracted." overall, though, what the mainstream folks would call a "visual masterpiece."
If you get past the weirdness you will enjoy this movie. Audrey Hollander is hot, and the sex scenes are hot. I admit I never figured out what it was all about, but I didn't really care, either. One of the better movies we've seen.
the premise of "catherine" intrigued me. essentially, a woman is being haunted by sordid images of a past life. as i'm one of those light-weight goths, the idea of a woman being haunted by her sexual escapades appealed to me.
"catherine" is by no means a love story, and isn't for vanilla couples. the sex is rough, hard, and borderline shocking. if you like a bit of pain and humiliation with your sex, this would be a good movie for you. (there is choking, slapping, verbal abuse. not hardcore, but some people might find it offensive.)
visually, it's stunning. the director is incredible, the actors attractive and good enough to make it at least a little believable. even the costuming is gorgeous. the double-penetration (which went triple at one point) was insanely hot Ė the look on catherineís face was incredible. i must've watched it four times :x
my only qualm was the storyline; it's choppy and never resolved. i felt as if i'd missed parts - and while in some porn that's ok, but i wanted to know why she did what she did. it didnít look like she hated what was going on ;)
iím considering buying this title. check it out if it intrigues you, too!
