Werewolf in a Girls’ Dormitory (1961)

AAAAWOOOOOOOO ready for a werewolf flick?

While it hasn’t been so long ago that I last covered an Italian flick, it has been quite some time since I talked about werewolves.  Damn, it has been four years since I covered Werewolf of Washington as an “Election Day Special” in 2016.  I most definitely feel as though nothing of huge import hasn’t happened every single day since then, am I right?

(Checks the internet.  Goes to Twitter.  Checks in on friends over at the Facebook.  Goes to the CDC’s website.  Cries uncontrollably while huddled in a corner.  Recovers by shambling back to the computer desk like Spock at the end of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan after he messed himself up and was blinded after fixing the Enterprise.)

Oh my god.

Well, there’s only one cure for the depressing world that we live in and that’s B-Movie Enema…(?)  This week, I’m going to discuss the Italian werewolf movie starring a German wolfman and Roman Polanski’s first wife – Werewolf in a Girls’ Dormitory!

Vixen! (1968)

I love how Russ Meyer uses punctuation in his titles.

Welcome back to Russ Meyer Month here at B-Movie Enema.  This week, we’re going to venture into X-rated territory for the 1968 drama-satire-softcore porn exploitation classic Vixen!  We also travel north of the border to Canada for our story as well.

Vixen! might just be considered one of Meyer’s very best (though I have some commentary to add later).  The Los Angeles Times and the New York Times both gave high praise to this film despite its themes and obvious sexploitation nature.  However, again, it’s Roger Ebert who maybe says the best, most heartfelt comments calling this not just the “quintessential Meyer film” but that he also talks about how Meyer creates characters.  We should already be aware with Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! and Mudhoney that Meyer likes going over the top for his villains and various other stereotypical characters.  Ebert calls to the front that its Meyer’s talent in doing that that helps put people at ease seeing their first “skin-flick” and allows people to just have a good time – maybe the only thing Russ Meyer really wanted people to have.

Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (1965)

Last week, Russ Meyer Month started at B-Movie Enema with Mudhoney, a nice little tawdry tale in the American Plains during the Depression.  This week, we pick up a movie that is one of Meyer’s best known – Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!

As I mused there, Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! is a fairly well known movie.  There are two movies in Meyer’s filmography that probably get the most attention in terms of being trivia answers, but for different reasons.  There’s this one that we’re talking about this week for its fun title.  The other will be covered in two weeks because of who wrote it.

Curiously, though, as popular as Pussycat is, it was an unusual box office dud for Meyer.  Most of his films did fairly well.  There was a built-in audience at drive-ins full of horny guys wanting to see big breasted chicks.  You’d think none of these movies would fail, but this one did.  It wasn’t until later that it gained a cult status.
