One of the most bizarre and campy movies I’ve ever seen was Russ Meyer’s Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!, a 1965 release that was remastered and rereleased in 1995 in indie movie houses for its 30th anniversary. I remember being blown away by the clever dialogue and overly buxom (and violent) femmes starring in this cult classic.
I found some clips, including a trailer, on YouTube – you can enjoy them below.
I also found out that the DVD has been release (unofficially?) and that it has a bunch of cool features including interviews with the stars. True to legend, Tura Satana has a colorful personal history that helped shape the power she displayed in the movie. It’s not too surprising that there are many references to both her and the movie in popular culture.
Even cult-junkie king Quentin Tarantino said he’d give up 5 years of his life to be able to work with Tura Satana back in the 1960s.
