Editorial Reviews

FASTER PUSSYCAT, KILL! KILL! is the story of a new breed of SUPERWOMEN emerging out of the ruthlessness of our times. We are introduced to three BUXOM Go-Go girls: VARLA, ROSIE, and BILLIE, wildly dancing the Watusi before the leers, jeers and lecherous come-ons of their drooling all-male audience. The violence, implicit in the girls' tease, is quickly moved out of the microcosmic bar into the outside world as they literally let go of themselves, embarking on a wild, violent, deadly journey of vengeance on all men. VARLA, the outrageously abundant KARATE MASTER leader of the pack, breaks the arms and back of one man, runs her Porsche over two others, grinds a fourth, a muscleman, against a wall and, eventually, deliberately goes down the path of her own self-destruction, dragging her two BUXOTIC cohorts along with her.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic film marred by lackluster, overpriced DVD September 5, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is definitely a must see. That being said the transfer of this DVD is no better than my VHS copy. Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! is a very noteworthy cult film and deserves something akin to the Criterion treatment. I saw a restored print on the big screen a few years ago and it was positvely gorgeous, high-contrast, luminous and sharp. The sound quality here is acceptable given the source, but picture quality of this DVD is muddy and faded looking, plus a seemingly improper/misaligned aspect ratio to boot. A 5 star film on a 2 star disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars A mid-sixties masterpiece of shock and schlock..., September 28, 2007
Format:DVD
Most B-movies produced for the drive-in market are watchable once or twice. This is one of a handful that improve with repeated viewings. And speaking of handfuls, let's look at the Pussycats themselves. First, there's Tura Satana as Varla. She must have taken a deep breath before every take, because she belts out almost every line of dialog with amazing force and menace. The only time she speaks at all rationally is when she's lying. Then, her whole persona changes to a shrugging deadpan. Lori Williams as Billy is the weakest of the three, though she would have dominated a normal drive-in flick. And her drunk scene is pretty much of a blast. But it's Haji's performance as Rosie that's the secret gem of this movie. She has the perfect undefinable latina accent-- neither Italian nor Spanish. In fact, she's a Canadian, and had to learn the accent. Hers is a wonderfully mannered, sneering performance I can't take my eyes off of.

Of the men, Stuart Lancaster chews the scenery brilliantly as the rich, crippled, cantankerous old letch. Leering and sneering, and drinking heavilly at lunch. And his hulking yet mentally challenged son The Vegatable is great fun to watch, too. Squinting with concentration before each halting line of dialog. Secretly gentle, despite the vile things the old man wants him to do. And, like most of the characters in Pussycat, he seems like he could have been written by Tenessee Williams on LSD.

Most of the dialog is quotable, and just about every frame could be enlarged to hang on the wall. This and Meyer's equally brilliant Beyond the Valley of the Dolls have had unestimable influence on directors as diverse as John Waters and Quinton Tarrantino. But, despite having been strip-mined over the years, retain a strange and often shocking vitality.

4.0 out of 5 stars Coming At Ya From Six Different Dangerous Directions October 8, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
While there are some who argue that it is a pro-feminist flick with lots of social significance, truth is FASTER PUSSYCAT KILL KILL is a very deliberately made bit of ultra-drive-in trash, a movie that glories in all things low-brow, low-rent, and low-necklined. And it has a cast that makes up for their collective lack of talent with attitude to spare.

The story is as hooty as the cast. Tura Satana, she of the lethal cleavage, leads minions Haji and Lori Williams away from the grind of their jobs at the go-go joint and out into the desert. They race their cars. They wrestle in the water and then in the sand. They dance the watusi. They bump off this guy who shows up wearing plaid shorts. (You might read this as a mercy killing.) Then they set their sights on an old lech and his dum-dum sons, hoping to make away with their money. Faster Pussycat indeed!

The script is deliberately absurd, with an emphasis on memorable one liners that try to out-cliche all known cliches. But the real attraction here are the "pussycats." It isn't often that you see a 2D movie with 3D effects, but that's exactly what happens when Tura, Haji, Lori, and their six talents hit the screen. These are three big-busted, nip-waisted women with evil attitude, and they sneer, snarl, snap, and slither around the screen with all the aplomb of trailer park drag queens gone bad. It's more "tacky cool" than a 1965 plastic jewelry box explosion.

Now, how much you like this sort of thing really depends on how warped your sense of humor is. Cheap though it is, the thing is remarkably well done, and taken in the right way the combination of trailer-park chic, retro-hysteria, and ultra-attitude is a lot of fun... and when the pussycats hit the screen you may think you're about to get a black eye, and I don't mean from their fists! Breakout the popcorn and some protective glasses: Tura and the Pussycats are coming at ya!

4.0 out of 5 stars Go! Baby, Go!! December 2, 2007
Format:DVD
How dare you consider yourself a cult movie fan if you've never seen this film! Well, it is forgivable considering that in order to see this movie you either have to A) have forty bucks lying around to make a purchase on a film you've never seen, or B) have a video store in your vicinity that actually rents stuff like this out. Neither of these are very likely. But if you happen to catch this movie, it is a treat. Meyer's early 60s work is quite different than the goofball sex pictures he'd do down the road. In Faster Pussycat, three go-go dancers(led by the yummy Tura Satana) out for a joyride end up killing a guy and taking his girlfriend hostage. Then they catch wind of a crippled old hermit who has a bunch of money stashed away on his land. They devise a plan to seduce the two sons of the man and make off with the money. They soon realize that the old man is just about as crazy(if not crazier) than they are. Like I said, this is different than the later Meyer films. There's actually a bit more plot. In fact, the plot is almost something you could see the Cohen Brothers doing. There's no nudity or sex(plenty of innuendo), but the three lead women just ooze sexuality regardless of what they may be doing, whether eating dinner or beating the snot out of a guy. Especially Tura Satana, who looks so sexy, yet so dangerous that you're not sure if she'll throw you in bed to do the deed or break your neck. I'm sure it was rather risque for the time though. Exploitation films from this time period have the coolest look about them. The women, the fashions, the music, the muscle cars. Read more ›
