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

Andy Warhol's Bad or should it be Jed Johnson's Bad, is fascinating for the very fact that the film was released. Also for Carroll Baker's performance as Mrs. Aiken, a woman who runs a hair removal business out of her kitchen.
Baker's performance makes Faye Dunaway in Mommie Dearest look like a harmless little kitten. What fun it would be to see the two of them in a fight! The film seems to be made to appear as a low budget film but in fact is probably the most sophisticated of Warhol films. Baker's acting is superb and she probably has the best dialogue.
The other characters you won't forget for a long time. Oddly, Perry King's performance and character is the most bland. In fact, all of the males here are bland. It is the women that stand out.
Here is a harsh, brutal look at life in Queens when a woman or women have to come up with creative ways to make a buck. This is about mean people who no longer care about law or anyone who tries to adhere to law or impose any moral code whatsoever.
Kill or be killed. One of my favorite films but certainly not for everyone!
