Three thrill-seeking go-go dancers, Billie (Lori Williams), Rosie (Haji), and their leader, Varla (Tura Satana) encounter a young couple in the desert while racing their sports cars. After killing the boyfriend (Ray Barlow) with her bare hands, Varla drugs, binds, gags and kidnaps his girlfriend, Linda (Susan Bernard). On a desolate highway, the four stop at a gas station, where they see a wheelchair-bound old man (Stuart Lancaster) and his muscular, dimwitted son, Vegetable (Dennis Busch). The gas station attendant (Mickey Foxx) tells the women that the old man and his two sons live on a decrepit ranch with a hidden cache of money. Intrigued, Varla hatches a scheme to rob the lecherous old man…

“Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!” is a 1965 cult classic exploitation film directed by Russ Meyer, who also wrote the script with Jack Moran. The film features gratuitous violence, sexuality, provocative gender roles, and camp dialogue. It is one of Meyer’s more boldly titled and unflinchingly exploitative films; however, there is no full on nudity. This movie has been on my list for a long time, and I reckon this is an odd, but yet intriguing movie. The mix of hard edged women in sports cars committing crimes with a frown and yet living out some sort of female liberation from the strains of society concerning how a woman should act and behave is striking. It´s over the top with dodgy acting, and as said a dialogue straight from a 5 dime pulp noir story, but yet the direction, storyline and black/white format creates something unique. A cult classic without no doubt. (3 and a half out of 5)
