  • Taking up the mantle of Andy Warhol's usual filmic collaborator Paul Morrissey, Jed Johnson offers up some laid back Warholian cinematic mayhem with the hysterically laconic BAD. Hazel Aikins runs an electrolysis center out of her home in Queens, New York and on the side runs a ring of smart-mouthed and sexy street girls whom she hires out as professional killers to those unwilling to do their own dirty deeds. When she unwillingly takes in her first male charge, L.T. (Perry King), Hazel's well established balance is upturned. As the various ladies carry out their gruesome tasks (killing a dog, maiming a gas station attendant) Johnson trains the camera as much on the superbly bizarre mannerisms and gestures of the actors as on their actual crimes, creating a vastly amusing if slightly disturbing cast of characters. When L.T. finally gets his assignment, to kill an unwanted autistic child, he becomes paralyzed by memories of his own abused youth. Hazel, constantly annoyed by her untrustworthy girls, her electrolysis clients, her useless daughter-in-law and whiny grandson and the unruly cop who she pays protection to, finally comes unglued in a bizarre and outrageous climax befitting Warhol's legacy.

    "...An artifact of our time....[BAD] is more aware of what it's up to than any Warhol film I've seen to date."
