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.
About the Director

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.Read more ›
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!
GFT, Amazon Reviewer
It's starts with some classic nonsensical voiceover about the violence lurking in women and the unmistakable "smell of female" before cutting to our three stars dancing at the go-go club for some disturbingly enthusiastic male patrons. "go baby go go go!"
We're quickly brought to the dessert where our story unfolds. Apparently these three unbelievably buxom ladies are a "team" of sorts who don't mind a little violence and mayhem which is quickly proved when their leader kills a man with her bare hands and then kidnaps his whiny girlfriend. They hatch a plan to rob an old local miser of his life savings. The miser is shockingly misogynistic and has two sons, one of whom is a muscle bound vegetable. The details and background of these two is slowly revealed through some incredible patches of dialogue which border on campy but maintain a sort of dark edge. And while there is no nudity or sex depicted anywhere in the film, it is somehow a constant presence: Billie's hillarious attempts at seducing the "vegetable", Varla's gravity defying neckline, the leering old man-it's all sex without being overly graphic unlike later Russ Meyer films. The dialogue is insanely quotable as it just gets weirder and weirder:the dinner scene is just amazing. "I never try anything I just do it. Wanna try me?" You Tarzan Me Jane, now grab a vine and let's swing" "when I've had enough of this (whiskey) it's been known to be passin'-out-time!" "we don't like anything soft. Everything we touch is hard" All the "guilty" characters (which is almost everyone) get their comeuppance in the end in a variety of gruesome deaths. There really aren't words to do this film justice. It is a full-on over the top, sexually charged, near camp, film noir masterpiece. Watch it again and again and again.
