Bad Girls Go to Hell stars Gigi Darlene, George La Rocque, Barnard L. Sackett, Harold Key and Darlene Bennett. This film marked the end of Wishman's lighthearted nudist camp series and "nudie-cutie" comedies (such as Nude on the Moon) and a shift toward serious stories dealing with sex and violence. The new wave of harder-edged sexploitation and violent "roughie" films had already arrived a year earlier with David F. Friedman and Herschell Gordon Lewis' Scum of The Earth! (1963), Russ Meyer's Lorna (1964), Michael Findlay's Body of a Female, and Joseph P. Mawra's Olga's House of Shame and its sequels. This was also released on DVD as part of a large box set of vintage exploitation films called Girls Gone Bad.
