Bad Girls Go to Hell

Bad Girls Go to Hell

Directed by Doris Wishman • 1965 • United States
Starring Gigi Darlene, Barnard L. Sackett, Sam Stewart

One of the highlights of legendary exploitation auteur Doris Wishman’s ultraprolific career, BAD GIRLS GO TO HELL tells the tale of Meg (Gigi Darlene), a Boston housewife who, after she is raped by the janitor of her apartment building, kills her attacker and flees to New York City, where she passes through a string of violent and sexual encounters while trying to elude the police. The threadbare production values and largely negligible plot are overcome by Wishman’s arrestingly idiosyncratic visual style and singular commitment to an offbeat vision that borders on the surreal.
