Andy Warhol’s Bad (1977)


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.

    It was a beautiful denouement when Freddie from Superfly finally offed the evil old broad. Definitely one of the more lowdown and mean films of the 1970s, right up there with Pink Flamingos. Good use of dark comedy.
