picture is midnight black. An imperious, testosterone-heavy voice
intones: "Ladies and gentleman, welcome to the world of violence . . .
While violence cloaks itself in a plethora of disguises, its favorite
mantle still remains sex . . . Let's examine closely then, the
dangerously evil creation, this new breed, encased and contained within
the supple skin of woman—the softness is there, the unmistakable smell
of female . . . But a word of caution: handle with care and don't drop
This rapacious new breed prowls both alone and in
packs ... Who are they? One might be your secretary, your doctor's
receptionist ... or a dancer in ago-go bar!" Cut to an eye-popping triad
of outrageous, impossibly built women shimmying with frenzied abandon. A
swaggering, bargain-basement Tom Jones—style voice belts out a number
on the soundtrack. Cut! Close-ups of gyrating, disembodied breasts and
hips. Cut! A shiny, alluring jukebox. Cut! Leering, predatory faces of
cigar-chomping manimals impotently cheering the women on.
Cut! Cut! Each new shot seems to add another crazy angle, another
fabulous detail. Cut to raven-haired, black-gloved Varla—one of the
dancers—head thrown back and cackling maniacally as she hammers the gas
pedal of a gleaming Porsche. Vrrrr000m! The Porsche screams down a
Mojave desert highway at the head of a menacing trio of bisexual go-go
superwomen, itching to annihilate any man who gets in their way. Faster,
Pussycat! Kill, Kill' screams the title. And this is just the first two
minutes of the picture.
