Movie Summary

Director:
Russ Meyer
Released:
1965
Rating:
TV-14
Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! is an exploitation film classic from master of the genre, director Russ Meyer. The film tells the story of three strippers, Billie (Lori Williams), Rosie (Haji), and Varla (Tura Santana), marauding across the United States seeking thrills. In their travels, they encounter a young couple. Varla kills the boyfriend (Ray Barlow) with her bare hands. Then, she drugs, binds, gags, and kidnaps his girlfriend Linda (Susan Bernard). Stopping for gas, the four women meet an old man (Stuart Lancaster) and his strong but dimwitted son, Vegetable (Dennis Busch). They learn the old man has money hidden away on his property. The ladies hatch a plan to seduce the man and his son and make off with their money. More important than story or plot, Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! features violence, campy dialogue, and gratuitous nudity. This film is the all-time classic exploitation film and a great relic from the counterculture of the 1960s.
