Living In: Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!

Summer is probably the best time to indulge in some good ol’ B-Movies—especially if it’s outdoors, with a projector under the stars. While any sort of movie is great for outdoor film viewing, schlocky camp ones seem particularly suited to this type of venue. They’re lighthearted, filled with cheap (yet excellent) thrills, and often overflowing with horrible (and so quotable) dialogue. There are some awesome camp cult classics out there (The Beach Girls And The Monster, anyone?), but the one that takes the cake, the absolute cream-of-the-crop, end-all-be-all has to be, without a doubt, Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! Directed by Russ Meyer, the veritable king of the “sexploitation” genre, Faster features enough sassy ladies, sexy cars, and karate-chopping mayhem to satisfy any B-Movie junky. Centered around three cat-eyed go-go-dancers who partake in a murderous, gasoline-filled caper, the film is like Tarantino in a time warp. Although probably too self-aware to be deemed “real” camp, this classic still supplies a rockin’ good time at the movies. —Max
