Exploitation maven Russ Meyer created a cult classic with this turbo-charged action film. Three curvaceous go-go dancers in a cool sports car go on a desert crime spree, led by Varla (the amazing Tura Satana), a busty, nasty woman dressed entirely in black. Varla's lesbian moll, Rosie (Haji) -- who has an extremely overwrought accent -- and reluctant bimbo Billie (Lori Williams) are along for the ride. When they meet a na´ve young couple, Tommy and Linda (Ray Barlow and Sue Bernard), Varla challenges the man to a race then kills him by breaking his back. They take Linda hostage and drive… More

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, ColeSmithey.com
"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
