SUPERVIXENS may be the ultimate Russ Meyer film! Overdosing on breasts, sex, and violence, Meyer delivers the goods to his fans and then some. In this movie, all women with huge breasts have Super stated before their name, like they are a totally different race of women. In Meyer’s world, they are.
Shari Eubanks is amazing as SuperAngel, a slutty bitch who tortures her boyfriend Clint to the point of insanity. When Angel has an affair with psycho sheriff Harry Sledge (the ever-sneering Charles Napier) who ends up killing her (a sequence that will make even the most jaded viewer cringe), Clint is blamed. On the run, he encounters more Superwomen (including Haji as SuperHaji and Uschi Digart as SuperSoul) and actors and situations from Meyers’ earlier films (including FASTER PUSSYCAT! KILL! KILL! and VIXEN!). Stuart Lancaster plays a farmer who has LOTS of exaggerated, hilarious sex with his German mail-order bride SuperSoul (Uschi Digart). Clint finally meets up with SuperVixen (Eubanks again) and takes a job as her boyfriend and mechanic at her gas station. But Harry shows up in time to provide trouble for Vixen and Clint.
SUPERVIXENS has possibly the widest array of sexy women in Meyer’s films. From the film’s opening vixen SuperLorna (who disappears too quickly) to the mute black SuperEula (Richard Pryor’s future wife) to the spicy barmaid SuperHaji (Haji returns! Hallelujah!), all the women here will provide eye candy for ten more Meyer movies! One thing is noted about Russ Meyer’s women and that is they can all at least act a bit. Shari Eubanks is one example of this and she stands along with Erica Gavin and the three women from FASTER PUSSYCAT! as Meyer’s best actresses. Regular Meyer fans may be turned off by the multiple violent scenes that seem more gruesome and tasteless than his other films.
SUPERVIXENS may be hard to find because of Meyer’s strict rental video policy, but is well worth tracking down! SUPERVIXENS probably stands as Meyer’s best 70s film. Highly recommended.
