Bad Hair: Justin Simien’s Horror Film

Justin Simien, who had shown “Dear White People” six years ago, is bringing his second feature, Bad Hair, to the 2020 Sundance Film Festival.

“Bad Hair” is a horror story–with an added layer of social commentary–about a killer weave.

“There’s a lot of really interesting original movies that are in the marketplace that are female driven or minority driven or black driven,” Simien says. “

But at the same time, that same fear to take a chance on something that’s different is prevalent. I think the streamers make things really interesting, but this could really work in theaters. I’m enthusiastic about its prospects for sure. It’s a powerful piece. But it’s also a ride.”
