Faster Pussycat Kill! Kill! posterRating: ★★☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

Review

Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! should have been the perfect movie. It is an exploitation film from the mid-60’s, encircling around three go-go dancers. Their beautiful and charming, and the fact that the go-go dance gives them a weird wholesomeness that is vacant from a stripper, so if you like your girls dancing as opposed to be ing naked, here you go. They hatch a plan to rob a wheel-chair bound man who assists them in temporary living on his farm. Why we would need an elaborate plan to rob a man who can’t walk is never quite explained. Regardless, Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! is violent, dirty, and sexual promiscuous- just about the perfect movie ever. yet it lacks any nudity (there is none) which is a clear violation of standard exploitation flair and makes this film unwatchable for a lack of a payoff.

Reason to Watch

Go-go dancing, violence, and Lori Williams just about sums it up.

Context

Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! does not hold up over time. For a film that was deemed so controversial upon release, it does stand as rather tame. Yet it remains a polarizing film for its plot structure and characters who seem to have a little depth in a genre that usually didn’t do much for their characters other than allow them as vessels for my violence shit to happen to them.

Most Memorable Quote(s)
  • The Old Man: Women! They let ’em vote, smoke and drive – even put ’em in pants! And what happens? A Democrat for president!
  • Tommy: I work on this baby the same way, trying to get maximum performance.
  • Narrator: Ladies and gentlemen – welcome to violence!
What You Need to Get Through This Movie

The knowledge that your girlfriend will never be as cool as Varla.

Trivia

Russ Meyer named the movie like this because he claims that a movie has everything when it contains speed (faster), sex (pussycat) and violence(kill,kill)

Educational Content
  • Killing someone has consequence
  • If your son is mnentally ill, name hill “Vegetable” for consistency’s sake
Justification for Rating

The problem with Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! is not so much that the film is bad, it’s that the ridiculous plot and inane actions of the characters are not offset by seeing the girls naked. Not that a film NEEDS that to be watchable by any means, but a mid 60’s exploitation film titled Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! that is as hackneyed and bizarre as this one DOES.

Review of Zontar the Thing From Venus

Rating: ★★★★★☆☆☆☆☆

Review

This is not your typical B flick. Written by the great Larry Buchanan, it was cornier the most yet I have to admit I loved it. This was totally worth my time. We start with a rocket scientist, who makes a home made “high power” radio set. With this radio he starts to get messages from Zontar. Zontar is from Venus and thinks Earth people need to see/learn what it’s like to be without “modern” forms of communication. He wants to “be in command of everyone”. People can’t even take a bath without the okay from this Venus weirdo! The rest of the movie I was a little lost. It was hard to follow as nothing really made any sense, however that did not detract from the entertainment factor. I mean the film had these bat looking animals biting people and putting a micro chip in them that made them virtual slaves to Zontar. I guess it could have been worse (you should see Terminal USA) :) True dramatic genus.
