Andy Warhol’s Bad is a 1977 Indie film directed by Jed Johnson and stars Carroll Baker, Perry King and Susan Tyrell. The story focuses on Hazel Aiken (Carroll Baker), a Queens housewife and hairdresser who runs an electrolysis parlor in her home. She makes extra money by operating a murder-for-hire service, connecting clients with sociopathic hit women who perform horrific jobs like killing babies and house pets. Her nephew J.T. (Perry King), a sleazy drifter who wants to join her hit squad, is assigned the job of killing an autistic boy. The bodies pile up, and Hazel finally pays for her cold-blooded racket with her life.
