On Friday August 22 Rue Morgue presents SINS OF A SUPERVIXEN: An Intimate Evening With TURA SATANA featuring a screening of Russ Meyer's Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! Satana will introduce the movie and answer questions about her legendary role in Meyer's landmark film. Tura Satana is a Japanese-born American actress, former exotic dancer, and cult film iconoclast. She began her career in movies appearing as a dancer in WHO'S BEEN SLEEPING IN MY BED? starring Dean Martin and Elizabeth Montgomery, and had a cameo as a Parisian prostitute in the musical IRMA LA DOUCE, starring Jack Lemmon and Shirley Maclaine. But it was Tura's role as Varla, the badass tough-as-nails vixen in the cult classic FASTER PUSSYCAT! KILL! KILL! which is forever cemented as one of the greatest bad-girl roles in film history. Just ask Quentin Tarantino, who cites Pussycat as a huge inspiration for his film Death Proof. Tura went on to star in Ted V. Mikel's classic cult films ASTRO ZOMBIES and THE DOLL SQUAD and recently completed a new film called SUGAR BOXX, and has signed on to lend her voice in Rob Zombie's new animated movie THE HAUNTED WORLD OF EL SUPERBEASTO.
