      Steven K. Blevins Gay Community News (Boston) Perry King, Susan Tyrrel, and a host of chronically urbanized creatures give Bad a sometimes brilliant sense of humor and a quality of characterization heretofore unique in the genre of films produced by Andy Warhol. Sep 13, 2022 Full Review David MacDonald Philadelphia Gay News Andy Warhol's latest accomplishment, Bad, seems to have proved its point, as long as the point trying to be proven is that Warhol is capable of photographing the most distasteful scenes this side of Pink Flamingos. May 27, 2020 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews This sicko black comedy is a near masterpiece in outrageous schlock shock.

      Audience Member Totally funny and mesmerizingly screwed up. Danny Peary's book, 100 Cult Movies, enumerates how it's as close as Warhol's gang get to Hollywood movie-making (name actors, union crew) while keeping their eyes on the prize of disturbing our sensibilities. He thinks it's pretty funny, too, but even more remarkably, pretty controlled. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Totally funny and mesmerizingly screwed up.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member GREAT final film from the Andy Warhol factory, this time not directed by Paul Morrissey, who by then had moved on to other things. This one feels a little closer to a John Waters film, but with a slightly more serious edge. The score by Mike Bloomfield (of all people) is quite excellent, with the legendary Carroll Baker heading a wonderfully offbeat cast in the story of a psychopathic suburban widow (Baker) who runs an electrolysis business out of her kitchen, while also running an all-female assassins-for-hire operation on the side. Perry King is the handsome but deeply troubled drifter who comes along to turn this dysfunctional household on its head. Lots of sick humor and kitschy dialogue will keep lovers of cult cinema engaged, while serious film buffs will have fun picking out all the cinematic references. I don't want to reveal too much about the film, just see it when you have the opportunity! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Sick, depraved, outrageous Fun--Flesh, blood and bad taste; from Andy Warhol!! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member The Factory film for Dreamlanders (although I suppose that could be said about the Morrissey films as well). Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member if its not a comedy why was i laughing at the chucking the kid out the window scene.
