Editorial Reviews

A possible prelude to "Natural Born Killers," Andy Warhol's "Bad" is as low as it goes. Hazel runs a beauty salon out of her house, but makes extra money by providing ruthless women to do hit jobs. K.T. is a parasite, and contacts Hazel looking for work when he runs out of money. She is reluctant to use him for a hit, since she prefers using women, but decides to try him on a trial basis. Meanwhile, the local cop she pays off wants an arrest to make it look like he's actually doing his job, but she doesn't want to sacrifice any of her "associates." Several other side plots are woven in, populated with characters from the sleazy side of life.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

If you like beyond-the-pale humour you will thoroughly enjoy BAD.
Duane A. Parsons
Warhol himself had little to do with the actual production of this film -- it probably explains why the direction, photography and cast are so great.

The description for this dvd says NTSC and All Regions but it didn't work in my dvd player.

This is one of the funniest films ever made -- clever script, fine performances by all, but esp. by Carroll Baker, Susan Tyrell & Perry King, and extremely quotable dialogue:

Hazel Aiken: I won't have that kind of toilet talk in my kitchen.

Hazel Aiken: When your ship comes in, I'm waiting at the pier.
L.T.: Don't fall off.

Estelle: People make me sick. All they do is eat, f--k and watch TV.

Estelle: I want you to kill a dog -- and you've got to kill it VICIOUSLY!

Mother to Bratty Child (after seeing a baby thrown out a window): That's what I'll do to YOU, if you don't shut up!

Mary Aiken: I remember once I saw this French movie and I didn't understand it. But I liked it!

Caroll Baker is Mrs. Aiken, a ruthless and enterprising Queens housewife running two businesses: hair removal and people removal (aka murder-for-hire). It's like an early-70s John Waters film, but with better production values. Warhol himself had little to do with the actual production of this film -- it probably explains why the direction, photography and cast are so great. Director Jed Johnson, and writers Pat Hackett & George Abagnalo, deserve credit.

I urge you to see it -- and recommend it to everyone you know...except possibly your parents.

Format: VHS Tape
Very John Waters-esque, darkly funny comedy about a housewife (Carroll Baker) who supplements her income as a hair remover by running a murder racket, specializing in hit ladies who take out kids and animals. Sick and bizarre, but very straight-faced: if you have the sense of humor for this sort of thing, it's loads of fun. And probably the best mainstream feature to carry Warhol's name.
(Although, despite what the previous review says, the film is not directed by longtime Warhol associate Paul Morrissey -- it was Jed Johnson this time around -- and there is no South African surfer bedding anyone. Perry King doesn't sleep with any guys this time around, and Baker vents her sexual frustration in abject cruelty towards everyone around her.)

First, I LOVE this movie. It's an underrated piece of genius. I pray to the gods that they release it on Blu-ray someday. But I was excited to see that a DVD was available.....but I was wrong.
The case cover looks like it was printed on a cheap home printer. The picture quality looks like it was recorded on a flip phone off a 1986 tv set. Dark, muddy, grainy, and distorted.
It's "BAD" alright. But for all the wrong reasons

This is an outstanding film if you like black humour; if you don't,you won't like it at all. The script - by long-time Warhol anamuensis Pat Hackett - is good enough you really have to wonder why she didn't continue writing screenplays. It was not,however,directed by Paul Morrissey,who left his partnership with Warhol after the completion of FLESH FOR FRANKENSTEIN and BLOOD FOR DRACULA in 1973. BAD was directed by Morrissey's protege and sound-man,Jed Johnson,Warhol's long-time lover,who died in an aircraft accident in the late 90's. BAD is a very well-made film but it does admittedly take a strong stomach; one controversial scene shows a woman abruptly tossing her crying baby out of a high window. This is not for everyone. Notwithstanding this scene,the film got surprisingly good reviews but still lost out with follow-up publicity consisting of feminist diatribes accusing it of sexism in that the villains are all women. Since it was authored by a woman,the accusation obviously has little credibility; besides which Ms. Hackett is probably the last word when it comes to being an independent woman,besides being - strangely,given the film's wickedness - an extremely nice person. BAD is a forgotten classic,rather like Polanski's WHAT?manother black humour film that was really outstanding but execrated on grounds of bad taste. Somehow nobody minds bad taste with John Waters,but coming from anyone else it's just Absolutely Unforgivable. If you like beyond-the-pale humour you will thoroughly enjoy BAD. It was not the last Warhol-produced film,unless you want to stretch a point and include Ulli Lommell's COCAINE COWBOYS. But for serious Warhol fans,BAD was the end of an era. As for Pat Hackett,she edited the Warhol Diaries in 1989 and still works for INTERVIEW.Read more ›

According to our Facebook fan page " /bad movie" there simply isn't a wasted line of dialog in the entire movie. Every word and scene can be enjoyed time after time again, and the more you watch it, the more the dialog will slip into your day to day life. Unlike Warhol's artier movies, this was a real Hollywood movie with real Hollywood stars, and a linear plot...but there's so many sick and funny twists and turns it was destined for box office failure. Certainly a movie for acquire tastes.

Carroll Baker plays Hazel Aiken, a middle-class suburban housewife living in Queens, NY who runs an electrolysis business out of her home. To supplement her income, she rents rooms out to "her girls", whom she also pimps out when her various clients need some unpleasant deed taken care of. Be it amputating an enemy's legs to avenge a one-armed boyfriend, having an autistic child suffocated, or butchering the dog of a pesky neighbour, if the price is right, no task's too unpleasant for one of Hazel's girls.

As Hazel, Baker spends half the film in curlers or hairnets and platform wedgies; the other in demure '50s-styled dresses and pearls. She comes across as a combination of June Cleaver and Nurse Ratchet. It's quite a revelation for those who only remember her from prestige roles in "Giant" and "Baby Doll" or as the titular movie queen of 1965's "Harlow". I've never enjoyed Baker as much as I did here. Though it seems her tone never wavers throughout the film, every line reading is perfect.

Hazel's girls include bickering sister-act Marsha and Glenda, [...]Italian P.G.; and R.C., an odd, retro-looking bleach blonde. Hazel's homely, snivelling, insecure daughter-in-law Mary (Susan Tyrell) spends the movie tending to her equally homely baby (She spoon-feeds the infant with a cigarette between her fingers). It was a surprise to see Tyrell in such a thankless part. Considering the colorful roles she'd essay in the future (a murderous maniac in 1982's "Night Warning", an obnoxious ultra-butch lesbian in 1984's "Angel", and Johnny Depp's Aunt Ramona in 1990's "Cry Baby"), she seems wasted here in such a one-note part.

Into this mix swaggers drifter L.T.
