Marina Antunes [Celluloid 10.02.20] horror comedy

I know Sion Sono has already made a movie about hair extensions that kill but Justin Simien's Bad Hair is such the perfect mix of horror and social commentary that it could well overshadow Sono's crazy cult-classic.

Elle Lorraine ("Insecure") stars as Anna, a young, ambitious woman trying to make it in the cut-throat world of late-80s music television. An executive assistant with big dreams, when her boss tells her that she needs to do something about her hair in order to elevate her career, Anna visits the local hairdresser (Laverne Cox) for some extensions. And then, just as her career starts to take off, Anna becomes convinced that her new hair might just be haunted.

The film also stars Vanessa Williams, Lena Waithe, Jay Pharoa, Kelly Rowland, Blair Underwood, James Van Der Beek, and Usher Raymond.

I love a good horror comedy and Siemen's has a great record of mixing message with comedy, he's the man behind both the Dear White People film and series, I'm excited to see how he manages with horror thrown into the mix.

Bad Hair will be available on Hulu on October 23.

Recommended Release: Hair Extensions
