Aging wife desperately wants to sexually satisfy her husband, but he's losing interest and cheats. She seeks advice even from prostitutes but nothing helps. Tired from trying, she falls for her husband's son who reciprocates.
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. Written by

Vivian Vance also turned down the role of Hazel. She felt it would damage her image among fans who flocked to theaters to see her whenever she appeared in a play. See more »

Where's that address book?
You get out of my house and go get yourself a search warrant!
A warrant? I don't need a warrant! I have a warrant in my mind for women like you! You oughta be out on 57th Street selling your pussy in front of a delicatessen! That would be big time for a dried-up piece of stale, white-bread like you! I wanna take my knife and scrape some crumbs off you and see if you're stale inside, too!
You get out of my house, you stupid nigger!

It's fair to say that "Bad", the final film produced by Andy Warhol's studio, is not for everyone.
Hazel Aiken (Carrol Baker) is a New York housewife who runs an electrolysis clinic from her home, as well as running an all-female "murder for hire" business. Her life is complicated by the arrival of boarder LT (Perry King), who is waiting for the call for his first contract killing.
The film is loaded with offensive scenes, including a mother throwing her unwanted baby out of the window of a skyscraper. However there is a strange morality to the film, which explores a world completely without morality, where life is completely meaningless. The film is full of deeply dark humour. This was the most expensive of Warhol's films, and may be his most accessible. If you're a fan of cult film-maker John Waters, you'll probably love this. In fact, this is one of the great cult movies. Recommended to people with strong nerves and stomachs.
