From writer-director Justin Simien (Dear White People), Bad Hair debuts on Hulu later this month as part of the streaming platform’s “Huluween” celebrations—and the new trailer will tangle you up!
Set in 1989, Bad Hair is a horror satire that follows Anna, an ambitious young woman who gets a weave in order to succeed in the image-obsessed world of music television. However, her flourishing career comes at a great cost when she realizes that her new hair may have a mind of its own…
Elle Lorraine (Insecure) stars in the film as Anna. The cast also includes Vanessa Williams (Ugly Betty), Jay Pharoah (Unsane), Kelly Rowland (Freddy Vs. Jason), Chanté Adams (Roxanne Roxanne), Lena Waithe (Ready Player One), Usher Raymond (The Faculty), Blair Underwood (Deep Impact), Laverne Cox (Orange Is the New Black), and James Van Der Beek (Dawson’s Creek).
