Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! is a 1965 exploitation film directed by Russ Meyer, who also wrote the script with Jack Moran. It stars Tura Satana, Haji, and Lori Williams.

The film features gratuitous violence, sexuality, provocative gender roles, and campy dialogue. It is one of Meyer's more provocatively titled and explicitly exploitative films, yet unlike most of his films, it does not contain explicit nudity.

Plot

Three thrill-seeking go-go dancers — Billie (Lori Williams), Rosie (Haji), and their leader, Varla (Tura Satana) — encounter a young couple in the desert while drag racing. After killing the boyfriend (Ray Barlow) with her bare hands, Varla drugs, binds, gags and kidnaps his girlfriend, Linda (Susan Bernard). On a desolate highway, the four stop at a gas station, where they see an old man (Stuart Lancaster) and his muscular, dimwitted son, known as the Vegetable (Dennis Busch). The gas station attendant (Mickey Foxx) tells the women that the old man and his two sons live on a decrepit ranch with a hidden cache of money. Intrigued, Varla hatches a scheme to rob the lecherous old man, who is confined to a wheelchair.

Billie

  • I'm of legal age for whiskey, voting and loving. Now the next election is two years away, and my love life ain't getting much better, so how about some of that one-hundred-percent!
  • Oh, you're cute... like a velvet glove cast in iron.

Rosie

  • Alright, you wash... now I'm gonna spin-a-dry you!
  • We don't like anything soft. Everything we do is hard.

Varla

  • I never try anything. I just do it. Wanna try me?
  • She is The Money!

Kirk

  • [to Varla] You're a beautiful animal... and I'm weak, and I want you.

Other

  • Narrator: Ladies and gentlemen – welcome to violence!
  • The Old Man: You girls a bunch of nudists, or are you just short of clothes?
  • The Old Man: Women! They let 'em vote, smoke and drive – even put 'em in pants! And what happens? A Democrat for president! A bunch of smoke up your chimney! Russian Russian roulette on the highways! Can't even tell brother from sister, unless you meet 'em up close.

Dialogue

Gas Station Attendant: (staring at Varla's chest as he pumps gas) Just passing through, huh? Boy, that motor's sure hot! You gals really must have been moving on these little machines. Yessir, the thrill of the open road. New places, new people, new sights of interest. Now that's what I believe in, seeing America first!
Varla: You won't find it down there, Columbus!

Tommie: What's the point?
Varla: It's of no return, and you've reached it!

[From the climatic finale]:
Linda: I killed her – like she was an animal! Like she was nothing!
Kirk: She was nothing – nothing human!
