Supervixens (1975)

Cult sexploiter Russ Meyer cranked up his giddy formula of fast pacing, breathless editing and weird camera angles to overdrive for this exaggerated cartoon romp, complete with a “That’s All, Folks” ending.

The convoluted plot detailing the sexual misadventures of a man on the run for a murder he didn’t commit includes escaped Nazis, psycho cops and reincarnation alongside the usual bevvy of well-proportioned fantasy females.

Numerous characters pop up from Meyer’s own back catalogue (Charles Napier and Uschi Digart play their same Cherry, Harry and Raquel roles) in a delightfully manic rollercoaster ride through the sexual mores of mid-1970s America, laced with outrageous comedy and extreme violence.

The dynamite climax is exactly that and has to be seen to be believed.
