Rocky Horror: Episode Zero - Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (1965)

Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are working backwards through film history, and in Season 2, they're using THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW as the starting point!  

This week on EPISODE ZERO, author M. Lopes da Silva joins Bibbs and Witney to go FASTER, PUSSYCAT! KILL! KILL! Russ Meyer's cult classic stars Tura Satana as the leader of a drag racing, kidnapping, murdering go go dancers who run afoul of a family of misogynistic creeps.  

Find out more about the unusual filmography of Russ Meyer, and how FASTER, PUSSYCAT! KILL! KILL! became one of the most celebrated, iconoclastic films of the 1960s! And follow M. Lopes da Silva on Twitter at @_MLopesdaSilva and buy her feminist, pro-queer, pro-sex work, retrowave 1980s vigilante/slasher novel HOOKER right now!
