[[caption-width-right:350:From L to R: Rosie, Billie and Varla]]

->''"Ladies and Gentleman go go for a wild wild ride with pussycats, but beware the sweetest kittens have the sharpest claws. For your own safety see'' Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! ''Wild women, wild wheels, race the fastest pussycats and they'll beat you... to death!"''

A 1965 [[BMovie B]] ExploitationFilm directed by Creator/RussMeyer.

Three thrill-seeking go-go dancers, Billie, Rosie and their leader, Varla, encounter a young couple in the desert while drag racing. After killing the boyfriend with her bare hands, Varla drugs, binds, gags and kidnaps his girlfriend, Linda. On a desolate highway, the four stop at a gas station, where they see an old man and his muscular, dimwitted son, known as the Vegetable. The gas station attendant 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. Unfortunately, the old man and his son prove to be less harmless than first thought, putting the two sides in a life or death struggle.

"Faster Pussycat Kill Kill" is a film that is considered by many to be Creator/{{Russ Meyer}}'s magnum opus, despite being rather tame compared to many of Meyer's later films. The film was only a moderate hit in theaters, as Meyers ironically opted to downplay the sexual elements of gratuitous nudity and sex in the film. But it quickly became a cult hit, enduring as Meyer's most notable film in his filmography.

There is also an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheItchyAndScratchyShow'' titled "Foster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!".

!!Provides Examples Of:

%%* AntiRoleModel: All three girls, but especially Varla.
* AttemptedRape: The old man tries to rape Linda, but since he's crippled, she can run away. All this happens off-screen, with the only evidence of it occurring being that the old man tore part of Linda's shirt.
%%* BMovie
%%* BareYourMidriff
* BondVillainStupidity: Near the end of the film, Varla chases Kirk and Linda around in the old man's truck and manages to corner them in a dead end. Instead of crushing them with the truck like she did with the Vegetable, she steps out and takes on Kirk with her bare hands, allowing Linda to enter the truck and run over Varla.
* BoobsOfSteel: In Varla's case, almost literally. Her chest seems to give her a fierce confidence and strength, and has nothing sexual about it.
-->'''Creator/RogerEbert:''' [Varla's] abundant cleavage seems as firmly locked in place as a Ninja Turtle's breastplate. One cannot think of her as fondleable.
* CarFu: Done by one of the sons against Varla, in the final fight.
* CassandraTruth: When trying to escape from Varla, Linda runs into Kirk and tries to tell him all that has happened to her. Because he's the old man's son, he ends up taking her back and believes Varla's story and that Linda is being hysterical.
* CatFight: Billie and Rosie get in one (and they're in a river, so there's a lot of wet action going on) at the beginning of the film. Subverted with Varla, because when she [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown gets physical, it's not beautiful]].
* ComicTrio: Varla is the schemer (leader of the trio, gets all the ideas that set off the plot), Rosie is the follower (follows Varla's orders without question because of SubordinateExcuse), and Billie is the complainer (objects the most to Varla's schemes).
* CoolCar: Every car in the movie. All five of them. [[note]]Varla's car is a 1965 Porsche 356C, Rosie's is a 1958 Triumph [=TR3A=], Billie's is a 1959 MG A Mk I, the Kid's car is a 1963 MG B, and the Old Man's truck is a 1960 Willys Jeep pickup.[[/note]]
%%* DarkActionGirl: Varla. Possibly the UrExample, if not TropeMaker.
%%* DoubleEntendre: The dialogue is ''filled'' with them.
%%* DumbBlonde: Billie [[ObfuscatingStupidity acts like one]].
* EroticEating: Varla eats corn very slowly while staring suggestively at Kirk.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Varla is extremely pissed off when the Vegetable kills Rosie, to the point of wrecking her car killing him.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Varla is a thief and a murderer and even she finds the old man's plans to rape Linda offensive.
* ExtremelyShortTimespan: The events of the movie transpire over little more than a single day in the desert.
%%* FanService: More or less a director trademark.
%%* FemmeFatale: Billie and Rosie
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Varla and Rosie just put up with Billie, and Billie doesn't much care for them either. Doesn't help that she actively tries to undermine Varla's plan.
* GoGoEnslavement: Linda has to put up with being only in her bikini and later a single shirt after she's kidnapped by Varla and company.
* IgnoredEnamoredUnderling: Rosie is pining for Varla. Varla herself treats her fairly well, but doesn't return her feelings. Cue scene where Varla makes out with Kirk, which is intercut with Rosie watching them, looking heartbroken.
* MaternalDeathBlameTheChild: As the old man reveals in a rant, the Vegetable was big even when he was a newborn and his birth killed his mother. The old man says he hates him for this.
* MyEyesAreUpHere: The gasoline station attendant stares directly at Varla's chest when he states he wants to see America.
-->'''Varla:''' You won't find it down there, Columbus.
* NearRapeExperience: The old man tries to goad The Vegetable into raping Linda, but the latter has a change of heart at the last second.
* NeutralFemale: Played straight by Linda before inverting when she takes out Varla herself.
* NeverSayDie: The "Kill! Kill!" part of the title is sometimes replaced with "Wham! Bang" or "Go! Go!" in bowdlerized TV airings.
* NoIndoorVoice: Varla, for some reason, spends a lot of time yelling.
* PetTheDog: Varla unties Linda to let her have a shower.
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: The old man has a lot of issues with women; he tries to rape Linda repeated times and gives us this quote:
-->Women! They let 'em vote, smoke and drive - even put 'em in pants! And what happens? A Democrat for president!
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Billie's "You should be AM and FM" speech to Rosie, mocking her crush on Varla.
* SubordinateExcuse: The reason Rosie is such a doormat around Varla, in contrast to the rebellious Billie, is because Rosie loves Varla.
* ThrowingDownTheGauntlet: Varla does it ''twice'' to Tommy, challenging him to BOTH a drag race and a fist fight.
-->'''Varla:''' I never TRY anything. I just DO it. Like I don't beat CLOCKS, just PEOPLE. Wanna TRY me?
* TokenGoodTeammate: Billie is full of objections to Varla's actions, treats Linda the best while hinting at her to run away, and ultimately tries to cut herself off from Varla's plan altogether, though that ends in her death.
* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQnHMp2_Xqk original trailer]] is the classic "Well, don't need to see the movie after watching it" trailer.
%%* TheVamp: Varla
* VillainProtagonist: The film follows Varla, Rosie and Billie as Varla kills a guy for kicks and kidnaps his girlfriend, then plans to steal a crippled old man's fortune, while Rosie and Billie serve as her minions. Though the old man is no good either.
* WouldntHitAGirl: Averted. Tommy and Kirk have no compunctions about beating the crap out of Varla, but that's because she has proven time and again just how dangerous she is.
