"Wow! Not only do you get two of Doris Wishman's craziest b&w exploitation movies, you also get tons of drive-in supplemental material from the vaults of Something Weird. I have a lot of their drive-in stuff on tape, and it's nice to finally see some of it come to DVD. Intermission shorts, over a half-dozen trailers, an adult "book pitch" and more - I love it! You can even play back the whole thing in sequence and see a hidden trailer at the very end. ... Viva Doris!"
Perfect presentation for one perfect film - forget the other

"The DVD by SOMETHING WEIRD contains a lot: The two feature films "Bad Girls go to Hell" and "Another Day, another Man", a lot of Doris Wishman Trailers and a interactive "Drive-In" Experience that links the films and trailers together with intermissions to present the complete DVD as a 3-hour drive-in extravaganza. Very nice. Films and trailers are looking sharp and clear, sound is ok (mono dolby) and at least no more "SWV"-signs on the screen (as it was with the SOMETHING WEIRD VHS tapes".
So technically, this DVD is perfect, the only thing one misses is an audio commentary by Doris or Gigi. But then, that might be too much to ask. On to the films themselves:"Bad Girls go to Hell" is a classic, starring the bautiful Gigi Darlene who experiences a nightmarish never-ending sequence of rape, beating, sexual harrasment. The picture is dream-like with very little conversation, nearly with no story-line to follow. All in all a surreal experience, like Vampyr or Dementia but adding a lot of sexiness (not really nudity)."Another Day, another Man" is far inferior. Even less nudity, a standard plot of two girls (one being a hooker, but wants to become an ordinary girl - one ordinary girl who does it vice versa) much more talky and showing less confidence. Gigi Darlene,not so vulnerable and wide-eyed as in Bad Girls, plays the hooker but has put on some pounds (or has become pregnant?) making her look less attractive and the role does not suit her.I purchased this DVD as a replacement of my VHS of Bad Girls and therefor am not at all disappointed by the second feature's failure to entertain."

"Something Weird Video does it again with this fantastic double feature of two of Doris Wishman's greatest "roughies".BAD GIRLS GO TO HELL is an interesting little curio starring Gigi Darlene as a young wife who is attacked by her dentally-challenged janitor and accidentally kills him. Fearing the worst the girl flees to New York but ends up living with weirdo after weirdo, including Darlene Bennett who plays a shapely lesbian who does nothing but swan around in body-stockings!ANOTHER DAY ANOTHER MAN stars Barbie Kemp as a beehived newlywed whose husband suddenly takes ill and has to stay in bed for about half a year (as you do), and has no option but to follow her friend (Darlene Bennett) and become a sex worker. Interestingly, Kemp wears the same black-lace bodysuit worn by Bennett in the earlier film!Of course, the big advantage is the "Let's Go To The Drive-In" feature which couples the two films together along with various concession stand ads and intermission shorts. There are also some great trailers for other Wishman films in addition to the films presented here.Be sure to check out the other Something Weird Video double-features which include GIRL GANG/THE VIOLENT YEARS and THE NOTORIOUS DAUGHTER OF FANNY HILL/THE HEAD MISTRESS."
Young women, weirdo creeps, and 60's New York... what a pack

"Amazon's description, and the accompanying customer reviews, pretty much hit the mark: Both "Bad Girls Go To Hell" and "Another Day, Another Man" sport amateurish production values, frequent lapses in visual and thematic coherence, and a strange fascination with inanimate objects such as potted plants and third-rate framed artwork. Yet, as most of the comments here also point out, there is also an undeniable power and attraction at work here, a kind of compelling, dreamlike quality that keeps one's attention. Of course, the numerous women lounging around in lingerie and body stockings in both films might have something to do with the movies' hold over viewers. Both movies feature surprisingly clean, sharp prints, and like most other Something Weird releases, this DVD also has numerous bonus features including trailers, short subjects, and promotional artwork.
