In this hilarious horror satire set in 1989, an ambitious young woman gets a weave in order to succeed in the image-obsessed world of music television, but her flourishing career comes at a cost when she realizes that her new hairstyle might have a mind of its own. As he did with his auspicious debut Dear White People, Justin Simien combines sharp, witty storytelling with piercing insights about race, Black identity, and American society. With terrific performances from newcomer Elle Lorraine and an all-star cast including Lena Waithe, Kelly Rowland, Usher Raymond, and Vanessa Williams as her boss-from-hell, Bad Hair is topical, funny, and full of hair-raising thrills.

“There’s a little Jordan Peele in here, too; like Get Out, particularly, this is social horror that veers toward the sharply comic and the politically prescient, but isn’t afraid of a good jump scare.”
