Sunday Nite Surreal: Russ Meyer’s Faster, PussyCat! Kill! Kill! (1965)Fabulous Tura Satana “The point is of no return and you’ve reached it!”

FASTER, PUSSYCAT! KILL! KILL! 1965

I had the honor of being the next person interviewed right next to Tura in Indie Filmmaker Steve Balderson’s experimental art film, Phone Sex. It was a thrill to come after the vivacious and wonderful Ms Satana!

Three wild women, Tura Satana as Varla, Haji as Rosie and Lori Williams as Billie, strippers thrill seeking cross paths with a young couple in the desert. Once they get rid of the boy, they take the girl hostage and set out to steal a crippled man’s stash of cash, that he’s supposedly hiding.The old man has two sons who they try to seduce in order to get at the old man’s money. But they don’t realize that they’re dealing with something a little more than a feeble man in a wheelchair. Exploitation at it’s best. Satana is a treasure to watch. She just plain kicks ass!
