THE BAD BATCH follows Arlen (Waterhouse) after she's left in a Texas wasteland fenced off from civilization. While trying to navigate the unforgiving landscape, Arlen is captured by a savage band of cannibals led by the mysterious Miami Man (Momoa). With her life on the line, she makes her way to The Dream (Reeves). As she adjusts to life in 'the bad batch' Arlen discovers that being good or bad mostly depends on who's standing next to you.
Much of the filming was done in Bombay Beach, California. Which is "technically" still part of Niland, California, and many locals were cast as extras in the film. See more »
In the dump scene, just after Arlen approaches Honey and Maria, Honey's gloves vanish between shots, and then reappear. On a close up of Maria, Honey can be seen in the background with her gloves off (where she previously had gloves on), and in the next shot she is wearing them again. See more »
Strange isn't it? Here we are. In the darkest corner of this Earth. And we're afraid of our own kind.

Truly dire movie. The first 10 mins are shocking and quite gripping, but after that it loses the plot - only that there is no plot to lose. Seriously, there is nothing in terms of a story. Instead, there are aimless wonderings around the dessert by characters, and long, long shots, and long scenes where very little actually happens. There is no proper dialogue to speak of, and the one conversation that the film has is about sh*t....literally it's about sh*t. How? Why? What was the purpose of this movie? How did anyone actually think this would be a good idea?
The only good thing, is the main actress, who is quite cute and watchable.
