Wow, that really sucks.

I have admit, even though I read up on her a bit after seeing her in a clip from one of her flick, I didn't learn too much about her.  Now, RE-reading some stuff about her, I'm just blown away.  I haven't seen her most popular film Faster p***ycat, Kill Kill (come to think of it, is that ever been released on VHS?), but get this, her REAL life is way crazier than anything any Grindhouse revenge flic could depict.  According to Wikipedia she developed at a young age and was gang-raped at the age of nine.  All the perps went free, so she studied martial arts and, years later, tracked them down one by one and beat the hell out of them!

Anyway, I wish the best for her kids and grandkids.

Yup, both VHS and DVD according to Amazon (though both version are out of print and quite expensive)

The other things you posted are intriguing indeed, must remember to look her biography up myself

R.I.P.  Bluesad Very sad news. She made dangerous and badass gals so hot and yet she always came across as boss. Way ahead of her time when it comes to films...

Damn shame.  Faster.. was my favorite Russ Meyer film, due in large part to her.

TURA SATANA will live as long as the world remains interested in RUSS MEYER... I think TURA SATANA copyrighted her own image and thereby interfered with later distribution of FASTER, p***yCAT! KILL! KILL!  Question
Good night, TURA.

I had the good fortune of meeting Tura last April -- she was still bold, brassy and commanding.  I wrote a remembrance piece here.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
