Russ Meyer originally intended to cast his wife Edy Williams in the role of SuperVixen, but they split up and he decided to use Shari Eubank (cast as SuperAngel) in the dual roles of SuperAngel and SuperVixen. This necessitated the strange plot device of SuperVixen being the reincarnation (sort of) of SuperAngel, with Eubank also playing the ghost of SuperAngel. See more »

While this isn't my personal favorite from the legendary Russ Meyer's output (that'd be either "Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!" or "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls" at the moment), its possibly the most defining film Meyer ever made. All his regular trademarks that have endured him to trash fanatics everywhere are on full display here. His editing style is rapid, with few shots lasting more than several seconds. There's a style of insanity which makes one wonder how sincere Meyer actually is - whether he has something up his sleeve or is legitimately demented. The film's sense of absurdity bordering on surrealism illustrates this. Also, the film's lighthearted tone is interrupted by shocking moments of violence which, while over-the-top in nature, are still potent. Most of all, this film features six buxom females, the most defining trait of a Meyer film.
This is Meyer's show all around, meaning outside of the voluptuous females, the actors don't really matter too much. Still, the cast does a good job with the kitschy material. Charles Pitts is likable in the lead role, despite not being as outrageous as the material called for. Even better are Shari Eubank (in two roles, as the ultimate evil female and a nice girl perfect for Pitts) and Charles Napier (as the degenerate and vicious lawman villain). Is it misogynistic? Perhaps a little bit, but this is the kind of crazy trash that one really shouldn't take too seriously. Another entertaining winner from Meyer. (8/10)
