Another gem from nudie-king Russ Meyer, Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! involves a bunch of biker chicks in halter tops who are up to their plunging necklines in crime. The female of the species is deadlier than the male herein, so be prepared for plenty of jiggly, knife-dominated "girl fights". The advantage that this film has over Meyer's previous efforts Mudhoney and Motor Psycho is that it was distributed to a larger number of theaters, thanks to the producer's tireless self-promotional efforts.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Some good performances emerge from a one-note script via very good Russ Meyer direction and his outstanding editing."
‑ , Variety
"What is it about Meyer that spurs critics to this hyperbole? I think it is an intensely personal reaction to the visceral power of Meyer's unusual images."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Gleefully sordid, violent, good-humored exploitation from Russ Meyer, the thinking person's skin-flick director."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Joel Schumacher, camp? Meh - this is camp, and this is undeniably a wild good time."
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Has a cult following that I am hard-pressed to grasp."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"A cheap and efficient comic horror movie, it's funniest when its dialogue and characters' behaviour are at their most non sequitur."
‑ , Time Out
"Sadly, Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! sounds far better on paper than it actually plays."
‑ Gabe Leibowitz, Film and Felt
"Classic social satire and slapstick humor!"
‑ Cole Smithey,
"This is the ultimate expression of the American cinema's greatest fetishes: big breasts, fast cars, tight jeans, and sudden death. This is, in its own way, one of the great films of the 60's."
‑ Kim Newman, Empire Magazine
"An awful movie but a tremendous spectacle and a pinnacle of camp exuberance, NOT to be missed."
‑ Nick Davis, Nick's Flick Picks
"I guess plunging necklines and tight shorts aren't what they used to be... Not that such a realization will hamper anyone's enjoyment of this, or any other, Meyer endeavor."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Russ Meyer's fetishistic vision of powerful bisexual amazons of mixed nationalities engaged in criminal super action exists in a cartoonish world of black and white humor where anything is possible"
‑ Cole Smithey, Daily Radar
"This one aimed for the unsophisticated drive-in market with its rich mixture of sex and violence, but served up no nudity or swearing."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"The sex is intended to arouse, the violence to excite, and the combination enables Faster Pussycat's status as an absolute masterpiece of subversion."
‑ Rumsey Taylor, Not Coming to a Theater Near You
"I've always felt that Faster, Pussycat! suffered from an absence of Meyer's usual creative flourishes."
‑ Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
