Storyline

After hubby Ted goes to work, Ellen putters around the apartment in her nightgown cleaning up. When she takes the trash out, the janitor forces her into his apartment and rapes her. When he tries to rape her again, she dispatches him and then hits the road, a fugitive from injustice. She goes to the Big City and encounters a string of situations where she gets used and abused. When she finally finds a nice woman to rent from, the woman's son turns out to be a detective, which threatens her newly found identity and peace of mind.

Trivia

There were several different posters for this film, all of which featured various women in states of undress (bra and panties, negligee, etc.). None of the women in the posters appeared in the film. See more »

Goofs

When Meg is walking down the staircase to the janitor's apartment, she is wearing open-toed mules. In the scene in the apartment itself, however, she is wearing regular pumps. (Fact: the feet in the shot on the stairwell are actually those of Doris Wishman; they can also be seen in the Port Authority crowd scene). See more »

A rarity, an exploitation flick as good as it's title!
28 July 2006 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

Many drive-in films of the 50s and 60s had great titles but dull films attached to them (i.e. "Billy the Kid vs. Dracula", Wishman's own "Nudes on the Moon"). However, not only does "Bad Girls Go to Hell" live up to its title, its one of the best b-movies of the decade. Doris Wishman is often ridiculed for lack of film-making talent and inept traits present in every film of her's (such as focusing on random objects whenever there is dialog). However, these traits actually help this film create a seedy and grimy atmosphere.

The plot is simple enough. An absolutely gorgeous Gigi Darlene plays housewife Meg, who gets raped by her apartment's janitor after her hubby leaves for work. She kills him and than flees the apartment making her a fugitive from the law. Along the way she meets various characters who seem friendly enough at first meet but only proceed to take advantage of this vulnerable girl. In the end it turns out "it was only a dream", but when she walks into the apartment hallway she runs into the nefarious janitor (!).

Many trademarks of grindhouse film-making are present. Post-dubbed dialog, grainy and shaky camera-work, and an incredibly sleazy cool-jazz / go-go score. Hell, only "Last House on Dead End Street" and "Blast of Silence" are better when it comes to this film-making style. Darlene is fantastic, but the rest of the acting is uneven. However, that only adds to the fever dream atmosphere of the film. Doris Wishman is often viewed as being an incompetent director, and most of her works certainly suggest this. However, she shows some amount of skill here. Kudos to Something Weird Video for bringing this forgotten gem to the masses. (7/10)
