Pussy Kills (2017)
User ReviewsReview this title
Attempting to be a study of some sort of Psych 101 level of dissociation, the film contains no writing or acting that can capture even a hint of what it tries to, other than a handful of tight shots of the main actresses butt in an awful catsuit. I couldn't tell what made me cringe more: the stilted acting, or the terrible entry-level CGI blood in the one or two scenes where they bother showing any.
It's a wandering, poorly acted, poorly situated film that isn't even in the so-bad-it's good wheelhouse. It's just plain bad.
The rape is done off screen and the slaughtering is so low on blood (and when it's shown it's CGI blood) that it is hard to watch. Because when Pussy goes out for revenge she does strangle and slash their abusers but nothing is shown. So the title will attract the Kleenex lovers due the title who will think they will see a porn. None of that. The flick was well advertised on all horror sites and even on youtube so you will come across it if you are a horror buff.
I agree on part of the killer Latino chick that she looks stunning in her catsuit, the only thing worth watching. What me annoyed was the score used, a rip-off of Massive Attacks' Angel.
Still, lovers of the Z genre will dig this but otherwise a waist of time if you think this is an old school rape/revenge. It's only the last 20 minutes that is worth watching, there's action and a bit of red stuff but by then it's too late to safe Pussy Kills.

Downside: It goes back and forth like a Tarantino movie so you have to pay attention otherwise you get lost, the budget could've been a little juicier, and the characters could've used more of an introduction.
Still, I liked it. I was actually a little surprised by the low ratings here so.....I'm going to offset that with an 8! :)
Take that, haters!
This is a strictly plot-driven action thriller. I agree with another reviewer who stated the character development was sacrificed a bit for plot and length. Regardless, the movie was very witty and entertaining. The main actress (Lina Maya) was very hot and could definitely hold her own on screen. The plot was intriguing and fast paced. I really loved the character of 'Pussy': a bloodthirsty, vengeful bi-sexual vixen with feline tendencies. Could definitely stand to watch more of her on screen!
Those crying that there's no actual nudity really need to get a life. First, if you just want to see sex and nudity, there is plenty of websites for that. Second, don't blame the filmmakers when sites like Amazon and iTunes will not play movies that contain "too much" sex and nudity (whatever that means). So blame censorship and not the filmmakers. Third, the main actress is hot in that outfit, and that should suffice for your pre-teen needs.
The movie is crazy. Some sexploitation films try to mask the fact that they're sexploitation films. In this flick the director went out of his way to make sure I knew exactly what I was watching. The film has a whole bunch of close up shots of the main actresses' fabulous butt and lots of full body shots. One way or another the main character ends up either making out, seating on top of, or licking half of the characters in this show. I couldn't help but to crack up. The humor, the music, and the pacing are right on point. I definitely enjoyed myself.
Recommended for those people who like movies in the low-budget, sexploitation genre!
Pros: Very sexy leading lady. Lot's of sensual scenes (hope the main actress got paid well taking into consideration that she was running all over the place half-naked). Plenty of kill scenes. Fairly descent dialogue. Pretty good soundtrack and coloring.
Cons: Could've used a higher budget, more elaborate kill scenes - a bit of torture porn never hurt a movie like this, and it should be available on Netflix but it's not.
I thought it was pretty descent. My expectations for this kind of film are never too high, but alas, it did pretty good when compared to the rest of the recently released rape-revenge flicks.
Flowing in the vein of 'I Spit on your Grave' and the wonderful 'Faster, Pussycat, Kill! Kill!' this film crosses the line more than once for those people willing to sit and watch; a must-see for fans of the sexploitation films of the seventies. Highly recommended!
