Evil Hair! Teaser Trailer for Justin Simien's 'Bad Hair' Horror Satire
"You're not tender-headed, are you?" Hulu has revealed the first teaser trailer for the acclaimed, outrageous hair horror film Bad Hair, which originally premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. This is the second feature film from Dear White People director Justin Simien, and it's launching on Hulu just before Halloween later this year. In 1989 an ambitious young woman gets a weave in order to succeed in the image-obsessed world of music television. However, her flourishing career may come at a great cost when she realizes that her new hair may have a(n evil) mind of its own. Starring Elle Lorraine as Anna, with an ensemble cast including Vanessa Williams, Jay Pharoah, Lena Waithe, Blair Underwood, Laverne Cox, Michelle Hurd, Judith Scott, Robin Thede, Ashley Blaine Featherson, Kelly Rowland, with James Van Der Beek and Usher. This is one horrifying teaser, just the right amount of fright and cringe.
