Watch: Brooklyn Salon Horror Short 'Hair Wolf' from Mariama Diallo
"Janice - why you out here looking like My Little Pony, girl?" There is nothing like a scary white girl. This short first premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival (and hit BAMcinemaFest) and it's finally showing on the web this year after the director's first feature just played at the 2022 festival. Hair Wolf is a horror comedy short written & directed by filmmaker Mariama Diallo, and it's a must see stylish horror creation. Diallo's debut feature is called Master and just premiered at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival last month - I really enjoyed it and can't wait for everyone to get a look at it. This short shows how talented she is and I'm glad she's working on more film projects. And don't miss Master. Hair Wolf stars Kara Young, Taliah Webster, Trae Harris, Madeline Weinstein, and Jermaine Crawford. Highly recommend watching.
