Entertainment Weekly Presents Black Horror: The State of Black Horror Post- Get Out Featuring Hulu Original Film BAD HAIR. Black filmmakers are revitalizing the horror genre and confronting American racism head-on. In this panel, Entertainment Weekly Staff Writer Chancellor Agard sits down with some of the filmmakers leading the charge: BAD HAIR’s Justin Simien, ANTEBELLUM’s Gerard Bush, and Christopher Renz, and TALES FROM THE HOOD 3’s Rusty Cundieff.
In this horror satire set in 1989, BAD HAIR follows an ambitious young woman (Elle Lorraine) 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.
The film stars Elle Lorraine, Vanessa Williams, Lena Waithe, Laverne Cox, Jay Pharoah, Kelly Rowland, Blair Underwood, James Van Der Beek, and Usher Raymond.
BAD HAIR premieres on October 23rd on HULU
