I would have thought this would have been released by now, there is thoughts that the Russ Meyer foundation won't actually spend any money on the films themselves, as the proceeds go to the charity itself, but his films have a loyal following and new HD masters would certainly create renewed interest (the DVDs aren't great) and money to good causes. Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! is probably the most marketable of Meyer's films.

If I remember some big names have even offered to help out, but they've so far declined.

From RM Films International:

"Russ Meyer’s iconic 1966 film, Faster Pussycat, Kill! Kill! has been digitally restored by the Russ Meyer Trust and is being offered in high definition on Blu-ray disc for the first time ever. Available October 19, 2015."

This is interesting news. I had abandoned hope that The Russ Meyer Trust would ever invest in upgrading any of Meyer's movies to high definition.

I'm reserving my excitement, however, and remain skeptical about this release. The Russ Meyer Trust has been very good at disappointing Russ Meyer fans since the auteur died in 2004. Their subpar, bare-bones DVD offerings are expensive. "Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!" deserves a deluxe, "Criterion Collection" type release of the highest technical quality with plenty of extras and supplements. I'm not confident that this is what we will get from the Russ Meyer Trust. To be blunt, I'm thinking of all the ways they might have screwed this up. Aspect ratio? Quality of high definition upgrade? Extras? Price? Availability?

Let's hope this release is worthy and the start of a broader upgrade of Meyer's unique film catalogue.

I own it and have seen it multiple times. Excellent release IMO. Great sound and picture quality.
