Plot & Details

Originally made for television, this delightfully sordid women's prison film has a pair of co-eds (Deborah Raffin and Lynne Moody) traveling through a small town, where they are arrested by a sleazy sheriff (Chuck Connors) and sent to a work-farm. The usual sadistic goings-on result, including rape, murder, and white slavery, but this is a bit more interesting than most similar offerings just for the oddball cast. Ralph Bellamy appears as a judge, Brady Bunch dad Robert Reed is the warden, and Gilligan's Island star Tina Louise is a prison guard. A highpoint of a year in which television seemed almost like a Southern drive-in, Nightmare in Badham County is a must for fans of smarmy small-screen exploitation.
