- Russ Meyer's ode to the violence in women
- Superwomen! Belted, buckled and booted!
- Go-Go For a Wild Ride With the ACTION GIRLS!
6 August 1965
A small place somewhere in the desert
A gang of three vicious, giant-breasted striptease dancers (Billie, the blonde / Rosie, the Mexican / Varla, the Asian)
terrorises the local population
Varla breaks Tommy's neck and stabbs Billie
The Vegetable stabs Rosie
Varla runs over the Vegetable with her car
Linda runs over Varla with a truck
"Ladies and gentlemen - welcome to violence!"
"While violence cloaks itself in a plethora of disguises, its favorite mantle still remains ... sex."
The Old Man:
"You girls a bunch of nudists or are you just short of clothes?"
- Meyer says, the title already includes everything a good movie needs:
and Violence ("Kill! Kill!")
- The "female version" of "Motor Psycho" from the same year:
Here it's three go-go girls in sports cars terrorising a small town in the desert - instead of three guys on motorbikes.
